Days Inn Key West
Travel Blogs from Key West
For all of you who want to emphasise to
your children that underneath clothes all blokes and birds have
the same bits and pieces only in different dimensions, take your
children to Duval Street in Key West during Fantasy Fest. What can I
say – even for the broader minded people it's quite a sight!
We took the boys …
Just over three weeks ago I decided I would go visit the Dry Tortugas National Park (http://www.nps.gov/drto), and I was going to tie this in with a motorcycle ride that I had been invited to join down to Key West. A fellow COG member (Concourse Owners Group http://www.concours.org/), Paul Heydemann (aka Paulie), organized a Key West (http://fla- …
We leave the hell hole that was the Days Inn, vowing never to return!! And take off for the airport to collect our economy car. After we arrive, the car company agrees to give us a bigger car for the same price! So now, we have a cool Nissan Maxima, but as we drive away, we discover the rear indicator isn't working so we end up having to exchange …
... with the room next door. I'll be completely honest..I felt a bit sick and suggested we should maybe look for somewhere else to stay. The next minute, Steve was shouting that happy hour had began, so we reluctantly walked out to the porch where around 8 couples were sat (clothed). I grabbed a beer and walked to the opposite end of the porch, where we stood for a couple of minutes, probably looking very awkward. Suddenly, two of the women walked over to us ...
... and dads and girls and boys, dogs and birds and bikes and toys. We are home for lunch and then off for a little shopping. We picked up what we needed. We got back and relaxed a bit over a glass a wine and then went out for our Valentine's dinner. We had a really great dinner at the Chart House, home to bed, went for another walk on the beach on Sunday and the back home. Until our next trip.... Feb 16, 2013 Hilton Head, SC Debbie ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
The hotel itself is what you expect from a Days Inn, the rooms were adequate and the pool great for the kids.
What made this place special were the staff, they were incredibly helpful and friendly and it's more from this I would recommend the hotel. There are plenty of others in town in a better location but for what you pay for this one works.

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Key West
Read reviews, was concerned with reservation
After booking this hotel (non refundable) I read the reviews on this site. On arrival, with much concern, I checked the room. I found the room exceptionally clean, neat, well lighted, and comfortable.
There was a laminated sheet, describing the hotel and what they will do to make your stay comfortable. The management must have read many previous reviews!
I would stay here again and tell others to stay here
I stayed at the Days Inn, Key West, for three nights this January, with some trepidation, having read the previous dreadful reviews condemning the place. All I can say is, someone at Days Inn HQ must have taken those reviews to heart.
We stayed at the days Inn for only 4 of our 7 booked nights. The rooms were filthy and the outside communal areas disgusting; Am sure they have never been swept.
We did not even unpack and ended our visit to key west earlier than planned. Have complained direct to Days Inn but they seem to not even care how badly it is been run.
Please if your reading this DO NOT STAY THERE. Its a dive and its public knowledge with the locals in key west thats its a dive
We stayed at the Days Inn in 2002 and then again this June for 7 nights. What a disappointment this time. First there were no ice buckets, then no ice, so they sent up some spanish speaking girl who did not understand our request and we felt bad for her, it was not her fault. The room had one 40 watt bulb in the bathroom, the other one was out so you couldn't see to well when you showered. The safe did not work. When housekeeping came in they did a so so job cleaning the room but left us no towels and toilet paper. My husband had to go down to the front desk to get them because there was no one there to bring them up. We requested a towel mat for the bathroom floor but never received that. They were willing to send up service to correct these problems, but who wants to sit in a hotel room waiting for service while you are on vacation! The room should have been maintained before we arrived. To top it off we spent time killing roaches! At that point it wasn't worth it to call service because they would probably send someone up to fumigate and we could not stay there in that room, and it would be
My husband and I went to Key West for my friend's open house party. It was only for one night (thank goodness!) and we rented a "suite" (at least that's what the hotel calls it). Although the only available room was a smoking room, I was assured it would not smell (which was certainly NOT the case). The hotel had no iron available for me to use (the front desk said they had none available as all were in use), so I had to make a trip to Kmart to not only buy an iron (and iron on a towel on the bar), but also I bought a can of Lysol AND a highly effective deodorizer for the bathroom and the air quality of the room. I have NEVER, EVER stayed in such a dump! Travelers be advised that if this is the ONLY place you available to stay while in Key West, you're better served by sleeping on the beach & bathing in the ocean. I'm thankful it was only for one night!
What a dump
The room smelled like a cat's litter box, house cleaning came in once in the 5 days I stayed and the room was below standard. In a nutshell, the room is not worth 19.95 per night.
I stayed at this hotel two nights--Wednesday, February 25 and Thursday, February 26, 2004. In general, I was unimpressed and would not stay there again.
The Good and the Ugly
The room amenities were fine, maid service was good. Continental Breakfast adequate Do not get a ground floor room near the pool. People congregated on the walkway, late at night ,each night. Woke everyone up. The carpeted floors were HORRID. Bare feet came up BLACK. I would not stay there again.
Great place to stay for a little
we stayed at the days inn 2 years ago and loved it, everyone there was very helpfull. we will be back next week, id love to get the same suite.
Have been to Key West many times and the Days in was the best hotel I stayed at and the least exspensive as well. Modern clean rooms,,nice pool...next to a 24 hour restaurant.....Looking forward to returning....
