We stayed at the Days Inn in Kenly for a night on our way to Florida and because we were traveling with extended family we rented 3 rooms. All of the rooms are very dated and the comforters are as old as I am (and I'm no spring chicken). One of the rooms had dead bugs on and around the sink basin. We spoke to management about it. They were more than gracious and offered to move us to another room. They explained that they have pest control in every 21 days and that the motel had just been sprayed 2 days prior to our arrival. We declined the change in rooms....after all the bugs were dead.
The air condidtioners could use replacing along with just about everything else in the motel but for what we paid, it's no wonder they don't fix anything up.
The motel is very close to the highway and that coupled with dirt cheap price was our reason for choosing this motel. Our rooms were located upstairs poolside so the noise from the highway was not an issue.
The mattresses were hard as a rock, so if you like a good firm mattress, you're in luck.
The pool was clean and we could smell chlorine so that too was a plus.
The breakfast consisted of muffins, frozen waffles, toast and cereal.
We had some good conversation with some of the truckers who frequent this motel and they were very nice.
The staff is also extremely nice.
Rooms were as clean as anyone could expect considering the dated furnishings, thin towels and stained carpets.
I would not suggest this motel for an extended stay, but if you are not picky and only plan to stay for an overnight it's ok for a one nighter.
Cheap, cheap, cheap and that was what we were looking for.
Also - there was a car on blocks in the parking lot when we stayed and we noticed that same car still in the parking lot a week and a half later when we drove past on our way home.
