Close to University

Older sort of hotel, Days Inn look and feel and what you would expect from that chain but charges 130 USD on the weekends due to location I guess. Walking distance to U of MN. The website doesnt mention that yet but it has a tiny gym now.

Good value

The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful. It is a "no frills" place in a great location. It is well maintained and the rooms are clean.

Visiting son at college

My stay at Days Inn was very average. The bathroom was much too small for my liking. The bed was adequate but not impressively comfortable. The room was fairly clean. The TV worked but selection of tv stations was sparse. The hotel wasn't bad, but I like something a bit more upscale.

Decent room. Very poor management.

My hotel itself was decent enough, but it was made complicated by a mistake the weekend manager was responsible for during my stay. After I complained at check-out, the manager said the general manager of the hotel would respond to my question by the next afternoon. After she didn't get back to me, I called the hotel to speak to her and was given her voicemail. She replied the following afternoon and left a message explaining the hotel's stance and asked me to call back if I still had questions. I called back within a few minutes and once again got her voicemail. I asked for a call back and also called the Days Inn Customer Service line to formally file my complaint, and they asked me to call back if the general manager did not get back to me within three business days. The general manager did not return my call or respond to the complaint within three business days, so I called the customer service line back and they started the procedure for having my complaint advanced. After another week or more of waiting, as well as another follow-up call to the customer service line, a manager at corporate finally got back to me and said I would be refunded in full for my stay and inconvenience. The refund itself took another week and a half, but I was happy that my complaint had finally been dealt with. In short, while the rooms themselves are okay, I would discourage you from dealing directly with the general manager when a complaint results from your stay. Her professionalism was very poor with regards to getting back to me and I was not happy with management overall during my stay at this hotel. If you do decide to have a room here, keep this in mind and go directly to corporate with any issues or concerns.
