"next to the "correctional facility""
Don't let the distance to the theme parks fool you, this place is next to a razor wire correctional facility. I have never stayed in a grosser room. Even though it was non-smoking it had burn marks on the floor, or as my boyfriend said "what look to be crack pipe burns", the pillows had hair on them, and there was black discoloration which looked to […] be mold on the ceiling. We weren't expecting much for the price, but this place was disgusting. I WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN. I took photos and wish I could upload them to show everyone.

"The poor ratings were a lie. It was a nice place ."
I went there thinking; I won't be there in the room long so maybe it will be o.k....to having a good stay..The service was great. The room was as good as a $100 room. The bed was clean & comfy. All things you expect in a quality hotel were there. Anything you forgot was provided graciously. The room was clean & had everything I needed. The maintenance […] replaced a light that went out in 5 minutes.. There was a paper and lite breakfast each morning. The TV was not new but worked fine. There was WIFI in my room for my tablet which was easy to sign on.The correctional facility was a concern that I need not worry about as it was people that get out during the day to work, not hardened criminals. Most of the facility I found out is courts, like near a fine neighborhood in my county. The mall was nearby & you passed the facility. The mall was packed with people buying, not worrying about anything there. Obviously people that wrote did not check. The location was easy to find, right off I-4 & easy to get back on for ease to going to Universal, etc. The rates were great for that end of the city. Other than the building is not the newest I could not really find anything wrong. . I was even told when I got my reservation that they don't know why the people gave it so many low ratings as the inspectors found it very good. And I did also. I heard at the conference about a lot of problems staying at Lowes Royal Pacific for the corporate low rate.. Stay at Day's Inn for a lot less. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Smells Bad and nasty never go back there customer service need improvementGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a good experience in this hotel. The location of this hotel is great easy access to I-4 highway. The front desk staff is not friendly but they are courteous. They offer free breakfast everyday. Room is clean and comfortable. The housekeeping staff very friendly, Ienthusiastic and efficient. The internet is pretty fast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location but bad service"
Room smell of smoke when I walk in and the air was off. It smell kind like mold, also they charge a extra service charge when you check in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel if all ur looking 4 is a place to sleep"
I read a lot of bad reviews for this hotel,i can say some of it is true. for me it was great, all i need was a place to sleep while i was in Orlando for four days @ Universal, its five mins. from Universal. Hotel was clean,so was my room. I would recommend this Hotel to any one looking for a cheep clean place to stay. Note - it is close to a prison,but […] so is the police station.

Checkin ok. Tried to use elevator....broken. Walked up stairs to room. Upon entering...smell just about knocked me over. Returned to office..memtioned elevator. She took me to another room. SHE opened door and immediately closed door. Smell of mold was overwhelming. Third room was OK...not great..but OK. A woman with THREE yapping dogs decided to walk […] them by our room. I could not wait for morning to get out of there. Air conditioner was so loud..kept me awake most of night. NEVER would I go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"This place needs to be condemded"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile Checked in or tried to. Took 3 times and the maintenance guy to let us in. He asked if we were going back out because they had key problems for four days!!! Everyone I saw had to make repeated trips to the front desk to get in rooms. I was honestly wary as all sorts of seedy people were walking around. […] For gods sake the jail is right there besides it. Ok got in room and it went downhill from there. The phone was ripped out of wall. Big hole with the faceplate on the floor. The linen looked sketchy. I looked under the bed and found a condom wrapper, a to go food container and other items. The shower had mold in the grout and what appeared to be boogers wiped on the walls. The carpet was stained and had holes in it. The ac had scribbles on it. I could go on and on. Needless to say it is almost 1am and I am driving again instead of resting. To skeeved out to stop again yet. DO NOT STAY HERE!!! DAYS INN SHOULD DEFLAG THIS PROPERTY Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rate = quality"
I cant really complain when i pay just 35$ a night. But just wanna tell my experience. * there is some service fee 3$/night for safe and something more. But when went to the room i saw no key in the safe. I told for front desk, the promise to fix that but they didnt. I got refund ;) * it looked like nobody clean outside. I saw the same rubbish in the […] stairway for three days. * ac is off when rooms are vacant so room didnt smell well. * old furnitures and tv * motel is next to jail so it was kind a strange feeling especially when i didnt have safe in the room;))) smtg new for me;) That's it enjoy your stay guys. Once again i dont complain. For that price u shouldnt expect more Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"right next to correctional facility"
Some of the rooms posted had fridges and some didn't. Thought I was supposed to have a fridge, but didn't. Not a huge deal really. More my mistake for not double checking. Advertise shuttle service, but is not really. Just called a cab for us. Misquoted us a price so we paid $5 more. Really easy to just drive to universal and cheaper too. Continental […] Breakfast isn't terrible, but is cereal and bagels basically every day. It's also layer next to the orange County correctional facility, lol. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The area was quite a distance from attractions despite it's name Days Inn Universal. The neigborhood and area had a lot of sketchy characteres hanging around at al hours of the day and night. I was afraid to park my car in this parking lot. It seemed as if many of the hotel guest were actually living at the property rather than visiting. The hotel had […] a horrible smell. I would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for an in-between stop"
We stayed one night after leaving an area resort. The room was clean, the ac worked great and the staff were very friendly. I wouldn't stay very long because the hotel is run down but for one night it was great. Just what we were looking for!:)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst Hotel ever"
Terrible cleaness. Staff has no idea how to treat their clients.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for a quick stay!"
Definitely great for a place to sleep and if you are going to explore all day. If interested in location and whats around the hotel would suggest to research beforehand!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
I saw the reviews but I needed something cheap, so I can't really complain. It is what it is..... I only needed a place to sleep and shower I spent most of my time at the theme parks and shopping centers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you paid for."
the first and the last.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very poorly maintained"
I was very unhappy with the location, with the poorly maintained buildings, and especially with the doors that wouldn't unlock with the key cards. The service wasn't bad for the most part. There was one worker who was rude about key cards that wouldn't work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Universal Studios"
It was okay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is right next to the jail. Room not avail."
Reserved a room with king size which was not available when we checked in. Very disappointing as we would have looked elsewhere. Settled with a queen. The front desk attendant was rude when I questioned the room not being available and immediately offered a refund. We were on our way to a wedding and did not have time to deal with that and find a new […] hotel, which is what I wanted to do after the way she dealt with the situation. The hotel is also right next door to the jail which was not listed anywhere on website. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Too close to a jail for comfort"
It was very old and rusty the best part was the a/c but it was Loud. It was my child that pointed out a jail just before we turned into the street before the freeway. However it was 3 miles or 5 if you went to the Harry Potter parking lot. So we saw a IHop next door and no convince store but the lobby had a restaurant and soda machine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location easy access to major attractions"
A good overall experience at the hotel. However the only issue is the changing of the bed linings.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Next to a prison"
Room was clean but it could have been updated a little. Felt a little insecure and unsafe being right next to the prison. Staff was friendly and pleasant. The breakfast they offer was not much at all. If it wasn't next to a prison i could probably stay here again if it were just a one night thing.Genuine Expedia guest review
Bad service and very filthyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great stay. Good people. Shady area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Located next to Orange County Correctional Facility. Not right for a family vacation. Service people were OK.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"NOT close to universal"
The hotel has named itself days inn universal north. But it is quite far from the theme parks. The hotel was shabby and out bathroom was dirty. Dirt on the walls and door. The beds were comfortable and that was all we really needed. But I wouldn't stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
the room was very quiet i was able to sleep that's a+ but the internet was not working at all for the entire stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The beds were OK but it was a terrible smell like smoke.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not the best"
It was just ok.. We did see a roach in our room before checkout Could have been cleaner and more updated...Genuine Expedia guest review
Not sure how they could rate this a 3 star hotel, place is really rundown and dirty. Not in the best part of town, large prison next door, doors were not secure to the room and air condition suckedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It's sad that the person in charge was not able to at least try to satisfy my needs after a bad plumbing issue were we had to be moved from room and when we were told that we were upgraded to a better room at 2:00 am. It was not the situation, but the way it was handled.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Worst hotel stay ever!!!"
I did not like this location at all. I actually felt threatened by other guests. Apparently, it was not in a decent neighborhood and I had no idea. The room did not have a pleasant odor. I could not wait to leave in the morning. I would not ever revisit this location again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OMG. IT WAS BAD"
I had 8 rooms and all of the had problems. Broken bed. Broken desks. Even toilets you couldn't flush. Next time I pay the extra $10 or $20 to stay in a clean and not smelling hotel room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not loving the location"
I did not like the location close the the jail, and the neighbourhood was not great! The front looks great but the back is unkept.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel near I-4"
Our stay at the Days Inn off of I-4 was very pleasant. I'm very picky about cleanliness of the rooms and our room was clean.the beds are very soft and comfortable and the pillows were fluffy. The hotel offers a limited continental breakfast in the mornings. The hotel has wi-fi but it has a very limited range.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good motel, good location and good price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for the price"
The morning staff was very pleasant and helpful, but the afternoon staff was more interested in dealing with their person banking on the phone than dealing with a customer. (20 mins) When we arrived there were 2 behind the counter, one on the phone dealing with her bank and the other eating a sandwich and not interested in helping at all. The room was […] as would be expected for this price range, but the TV remote was useless and the TV was in 3 separate colors, pretty much useless. I'm happy I'm not paying their water bill if other rooms had steady running water like ours. We didn't even need to flush the toilet, it was in the constant flush mode, no stopping it. Breakfast was the BARE minimum, not even one piece of fruit. Two dry cerials to chose from, one kind of cheap pastry and small bagels and coffee was the entire breakfast. But, as I said, for the cost, it wasn't a bad deal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"some Great service - scary stay"
went to check in 1 hour ahead of check in time. I was informed that a room was available but that I could not check in for 1 hour, unless " you can checkin early if you pay a 3$ early check in fee - oh I mean 10$. I waited and got back about 9pm, their was a seedy element hanging around outside on a cell with blue jeans and no shirt. So I check in and […] the lady at the desk in the evening was very nice and went the extra mile.. Walk into my room the phone rings, " Hello, male voice - This is so in so from the front desk and our computers went down and we lost your credit card info, I just need you to give it to us again.... I will not give it to you over the phone but will come to the front desk.... no - that's OK I can take it over the phone now..... " I hung up - called the front desk and guess what the lady that had just registered me said no that was not true and apologized and said she would block my room from incoming calls.... That basically means someone watched me enter the room and lead the person on the phone to call me, I assume since the phone rang 15 seconds after I walked in the door..... Locked the door, no further problems. The room was clean although had some problems, a hole in the carpet the size of your head, a fair amount of rust on the ironing board. I would not stay here again, Right next to the jail by the way . Guess getting a cheap room rate is not always a good thing... Good luck and travel safe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok hotel next to county prison"
Wasn't that far from everything.we tried the restaurant next to the hotel it is not what we expected specially the food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Staff great, terrible room"
Had a problem with the hotel getting my Expedia reservation. The staff was helpful and then waived other charges for my trouble and my one hour wait to get into my room. The room, however, was another story. I don't expect first class when I stay at a cheaper place, but I would at least like a dry room. The room was extremely damp. We were so tired […] after a 18 hour drive from PA that we just crawled into the wet beds and slept, but they were actually stick-to-the-sheets damp. The room smelled horrible. Like an old very wet mildew-filled basement. The carpets and floors were sticky from the moisture. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Dont assume address is any where near universal!!!"
When I booked the room I assumed it was close to Universal!!!! Instead it was next to the Orange County correctional facility instead! Instead of calling it Universal Days Inn, it should be called Days Inn Orange County Jail!!! How humiliated I felt when I dropped office family that was coming to visit me!!!! Then I had to find something for the rest […] of the week and wound up costing me more. Lesson learned, don't assume!!!! Thanks Days Inn for the inbarrasment . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to all must-see sights."
We were placed in Room #307 which was considered Non-Smoking. We entered the room and there were numerous burn stains in the carpet. We requested another room and were placed in Room #303. The iron didn't work and the light above the sink didn't work and had to be totally replaced. We contacted the staff and they were very helpful considering the condition […] of the hotel.

"Weekend getaway, 3 night stay"
Room was clean, staff was pleasant but please don't count on their 'complimentary breakfast' as a meal, it was quite sad. Sugary cereal, bread, and cheap pastry. The room was maintained clean, but not too quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
