“bring your cleaning supplies”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2005

We were down for a family event and had several rooms reserved, everyone had to leave this dirt hole and go across the way to ramada- we stayed because there were no more rooms left at ramada. It to the manager to show us 3 rooms before we even felt safe to lay on the bed.
Room 1- the bathtub was urine stained and looked like it hasn't been scrubbed in ages, mold on the curtains, and the carpet sticky-
Room 2- walked in with manager and she immediately turned around and closed the door and said no,
room 3- heather- the manager says she will put us in an unfinished room we step in bathroom had no mold on curtain but tub stained, bed sheets had holes in them but did not smell- TV not hooked up because room unfinished- we finally just settled on this one from exhaustion. the swimming pool was cloudy-

for the rate they charge I felt ripped off- I could not believe Days inn would put their name on this hotel- Do not stay here- no room is clean!!!

This may be a decent hotel.. the grounds look to be kept well.. but Lane Ave. is a very seedy area with very seedy motels. It isn't surprising to hear of drug busts and prostitution rings at Lane Ave. motels... The Super 8 was closed by the city of Jacksonville for being a such a problem. Other motels close by are Budget Inn, Economy Inn, Valu-Lodge, and Diamond Inn if that tells you anything about the area, stay away!

Stay at a hotel in the Southpoint area (J.T.Butler Blvd off of I-95), Baymeadows area, dowtown, the beaches, or airport.. all of which are very clean, new, and safe areas of the metro area in the city.

Friendly staff, good clean rooms, and great location makes this place a smart stop during FL/GA weekend. I already called and booked for next year.

This place was a real steal when you consider paying $43 to stay here (maybe I got lucky with this rate). Theres a great restaurant that delivers to your room, a pool that is real fun to hang out at, and a bar with live entertainment even on a wednesday. When I visit my family in jacksonville I am going to be a returning customer.

Awesome bar in the hotel. I live in the Jax area and frequent the bar and usually sleep in hotel. This is the only bar in the area that isn't effected by the smoking ban.

Probably the best Days Inn I've been to has lots to offer and the service is top quality. It is not the Ritz Carlton, but you can't stay anywhere better for the price they charge at this Days Inn in the area.
Thumbs up overall.

Our recent stay at the Days Inn and Suites, 510 Lane Ave s, in Jacksonville, Fla., was my worst experience in 25 years. I have stayed for a few hours in some pretty low line motel rooms for a quick nap while traveling, but noything compares to this facility. The rooms were filthy, (we had 5 rooms in our party), the carpets extremely dirty and stained, roaches were abundant, mildew throughout the bathrooms and shower, what appeared to be blood and urine stains were on our bathroom walls, the bed linens were so stained (blood, etc.) that we went to walmart to purchase blankets to throw down and to sleep under. Plumbing was bad in 2 other rooms, leaking roof caused the floors to be wet in 2 others, and the manager (Alex) would not even discuss the matter, acting as if no understood English or something. We wanted to leave but were going to be charged in full by management. The restaurant had 5 menus only and hurried our group to share them so they could seat other patrons.
