“Just OK but probably won't be back”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

The hotel was just OK...nothing really wrong...just a little too dingy for us. The parking lot is locked and gated at night and it is on a busy street, although we didn't notice any street noise. The continental breakfast was plastic wrapped pastries, cereal and juice.

Upon arriving for check-in, I was greeted by two very friendly smiling faces. Check-in was fast, and I was given Internet connection passwords, directions to the room, and breakfast hours without having to ask. Ample parking and well-lit. Good location. Our room was clean but did smell a little overwhlemingly of popcorn (not really a problem, though). There were 5 pillows, so you could definitely get a comfortable one for sleeping. The bed was a little hard for my comfort, but it wasn't horribly uncomfortable. The bathroom was clean with unstained plush linens. The room had a microwave and refrigerator. The heat was a little difficult to regulate - either too warm or too cool. The TV was an old tube TV, but the remote worked well and there were ample channels. I was very pleased with this Days Inn room until about 12 midnight when suddenly we were awakened by the booming of music. Around 1 we went to the front desk and spoke with the young lady on duty. She explained that she could not leave the desk, but stated she would attempt to find out what room the music was coming from (not sure how she planned to do that without leaving the desk). She called our room about 10 minutes later and said she had no idea where the music was coming from. Around 2 a.m., we finally took a walk around the property ourselves to try to find the culprits. We passed another gentleman looking himself to find out where the blaring music was coming from. Neither of the three of us could figure it out... it was as if they heard us walking and turned it down or the door stifled the sound. The blaring music got louder as the night progressed. Finally, about 4 a.m., they shut it down and we were able to go to sleep. I'm not sure what the solution is and I don't blame Days Inn for the rude inconsiderate people blaring their music in the wee hours of the morning; however, Days Inn needs to have a policy in place for situations such as this since patrons do pay for a night of rest/sleep. Because everything else about our stay went well, I would definitely give the Days Inn another chance.

This manager canceled our reservation because he did not like a comment made on a comment card which they ask you to fill out. I booked rooms this year for a footballl weekend and the GM had them cancelled with the excuse in the past I made an unfavaorable comment on a comment card. Real reason, I had booked 8 rooms at a really good rate and he knew he could book our 8 rooms at a much higher rate. USE CAUTION WHEN YOU BOOK A ROOM, NO NEED TO MAKE PLANS FOR A FOOTBALL WEEKEND AND HAVE THEM CANCELLED WHEN IT IS THEN TO LATE TO BOOK ANY OTHER ROOMS IN T TOWN Not a way to manage a business !!!! RTR

Room Tip: Don't plan to stay here unless you pay a real high rate. He will cancel to make more money

The front desk clerk and manager were very friendly and helpful in finding a great place to eat. The room was very spacious and very clean with a sitting area and a queen bed. Located across from a mall and department store. Would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: one queen bed rooms are extremely spacious

On a motorcycle trip we stopped in here. Friendly lady at the desk greeted us and was very helpful making us feel comfortable. Convienant shopping and dining in walking distance. Rooms are simple but clean. Wifi worked great. Nice but limited breakfast in lobby.

The reception was friendly and helpful. Two queen room clean and spacious, with a microwave and mini fridge-freezer box. Location handy to Walmart, Sam's and movie theatre. A welcome respite after some less luxurious places on a month-long road-trip.

There are just too many hotels in the area to choose from for the $75 rate. There was always trash in the parking lot right outside the door, people coming in and out at all hours, and the hotel room was very worn.
