Okay For Downtown

It was close enough to walk to the convention center which was great. But the breakfast sucked.

Great location for the price.

I attend Hopscotch every year which is a local music festival on it's sixth year now. Every year i've always stayed at Days Inn Downtown Raleigh as it is very affordable and less than a mile away from everything that is happening. I'm a modest person with modest needs. I've always gotten what i needed with this hotel. Staff does a great job of keeping everything tidy.

Hotel was clean and nice and staff were friendly and responsive. Continental breakfast was good - needs a little improvement on the coffee and waffle quality!!

Average, but good for the price

It served perfectly well for my 4 day conference stay. The breakfast seemed to be quite good, including waffles, but I never got to try it. One the one day I didn't have to rush out to early meetings, I missed by about a minute and everything was shut down. My fault for working too long. TV reception was fuzzy. Overall a very good price on travel website for a nice enough place with a pleasant 5-15 minute walk to tons of restaurants, museum and convention center.

Never again

I got what I deserved. This place was really bad. It smelled of smoke and was very outdated. If I was a college student it would be acceptable. I am 65 so not so much. Good location to downtown.

Good value.

My major complaint was that the air conditioner was very loud. Which is a problem I have with most hotels in this price range. The "gym" was a joke but the location was perfect for me. Downtown was easy to walk to. The staff was nice, the rooms clean. The bed was comfortable. A good value for the price. I would stay there again.

great deal for the money

I am not too picky and this hotel met my needs for the price. The room was very clean at arrival, but during my 3 night stay the cleaning wasn't as through. After the first night I noticed some crumbs on a night stand that was there from the previous night. After the second night I noticed a few crumbs on the carpet from the previous night. However the room was basically clean. I liked having a refrigerator in my room to use for cold drinks and that the rooms are not accessed from the outside of the building. Also, I appreciated that I was in walking distance from the convention center and the breakfast provided was a nice way to start each day. S.W.W.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Good food is available in a place connected to the motel parking lot and near the convention center. If you buy food at the convention center it is extremely over priced. If you cross the street from the convention center you can purchase better food for a more reasonable price.
