This was our second year we have stayed in this hotel in order to attend the fair.

We were pleased to see the remodeling improvements since last year. The continental breakfast area was bigger and more open. Our room had a much better refrigerator and TV. The carpet looked relatively new. The sink, toilet and bathtub were very old. The room was clean and adequate. We were surprised that the price for a one night stay was considerably higher than last year and yet much cheaper than other neighboring motels/hotels. We would stay in this motel again.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There were several choices of restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The location of the motel is very convenient to everything in Syracuse. Rochester was a little over an hour away and Buffalo is 3 hours away.

Needs New Front Desk Help

Very nice room, clean and comfortable. The office staff is not so great!! I called the front desk several times to ask for a wake up call and the clerk wouldn't answer. Upon going to the lobby to see why no one would answer I found the clerk watching tv in the lobby eating French fries ignoring the phone. I asked two times for a wake up call and guess what - no wake up call in the morning. DISAPOINTED

Misleading hotel name

This is not a "university" hotel in an way at all. It is NOWHERE near any institution of learning in Syracuse. We came to Syracuse specifically to visit the university, and picked this hotel largely because its name suggested it would be close by. My bad for not checking the map, I suppose. But STILL. The name is totally misleading. Then the hotel has NO lit signage outside at night, so it is impossible to find when driving on busy roads in the dark. It looks so run down as to be practically abandoned.

barely acceptable.

My family of 3 needed a place to stay while visiting relatives in Syracuse. I was hoping that this Days Inn would be solid but it honestly was subpar in every way except the service which was friendly and effective (if a little casual & unprofessional). The room was pretty dirty (carpet, phone, drawers, dust on furniture, etc) and had a broken radiator grill, curtains, and bathroom ventilation fan. The location was fine but ugly. The lobby, halls and elevator were all dingy.

You Get What You Pay For

Having only paid just over $100 for two nights, I admit I shouldnt have expected much out of the stay. The staff was very slow when I was checking in and at one point our toilet wouldnt flush and the staff came to our room and gave us attitude because we couldnt figure out how to fix it properly (since thats our job). We never got maid service on Saturday after we left in the morning, therefore had to leave on Sunday without showering since there were no fresh sheets. The room itself was passable but the staff were as poor as it gets... service with a smile takes preference over sleeping on the same sheets two consecutive nights...

Special attention! (or lack thereof)

Perhaps, there was a breakdown in communication. We were staying for 2 nights, but the next morning the room wasn't done at all, despite the fact that the door was left ajar, just for that purpose.
