This was a stop along the way to our St. Augustine destination. I was amazed to find such an excellent price and fabulous reviews for this relatively new Days Inn. The room was great - the commode and shower are in a separate room from the sink making it easy for two people to get ready to go in the morning. A small mini-kitchen with fridge/sink/burner/microwave and coffee maker is fabulous if you're wanting to do a mini-breakfast in your room or warm up soup, etc.
Breakfast was much better than I expected it to be. The french toast was quite good, so was the sausage and coffee. The yellow "egg" disks - not so much, but I am picky. For a free breakfast, this is over and above. There were also some muffins/sweet rolls, cereal, etc. available.
A small complaint - there are "snacks" provided that you have to sign a waiver that you will pay for those snacks if consumed. A small tube of M&Ms, a praline, a bottle or water and some cookies - each small portions with a premium price of $4 each. The labeling is tiny and it would be very easy to miss this - especially if you're traveling with little ones. There are vending machines in the hallways for additional munchies.
Know that the hotel is more of a hotel rather than the typical motel. The parking lot is large and everyone enters the hotel through the lobby or side entrance - no individual entrances to rooms. You will also have to schlep your stuff to the 2nd and 3rd floor via one elevator. The hotel wasn't crowded and it wasn't a big deal, but if you travel with lots of junk - it's going to be a couple of trips.
Kudos to the proprietors for making this a great experience. I know we'll be back for a longer stay.
