Everything works (except WiFi), everything's clean, very quiet

If you're spending little time in the hotel because you're out and about or just overnighting, this is all you need. It's affordable; has clean rooms with iron, ironing board, hair drier, mini fridge and coffee pot; gives you plenty of hot water; and has a pool and decent TV. Two family-style restaurants nearby plus fast food, drug store, gas, convenience stores. There was persistent trouble with the WiFi, though. Continental breakfast ends too early for this late riser. BEST THING: variety of pillow sizes and firmness, because one size does NOT fit all!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take your portable hot spot because hotel WiFi was not reliable. Hot breakfast available at restaurant that shares the parking lot or at diner across street (with crossing lights). Late-night pizza delivery took only minutes, and pizza was hot!

Below average

Even for an out-of-the-way highway motel, this was below average. Things were old, and not kept up well. The bed was clean and comfortable enough, or else this would be a one-star joint.

Downton Amherst, Stubby's and Cork's are good, with friendly service. Amherst is quaint and nice. Too bad the hotels there are such bad selections.

Decent say for the cost.

I was looking for a simple hotel while visiting Cedar Point and this one was a decent price without any problems. The pool looked refreshing but I didn't have time to use it.

find another hotel...

We came to Amherst to visit Oberlin College, and didn't know the area at all. We figured Days Inn would be inexpensive and a respectable place to stay. This turned out to be the absolute worst hotel we've ever been in. Not a single blade of grass or plant in sight, in ugly strip of shops and chain restaurants. The hotel is older, and yes, it has been painted, and seems to be clean...but they haven't replaced anything in ages. My mattress was broken, sheets had tears and holes in them. I leaned against the "headboard" (actually just nailed to the wall) and it fell on my head. Towels were removed in the morning, but when we returned at 5:00pm, the room hadn't been cleaned. She came at 5:30, and we said not to bother. We didn't try the breakfast. We tried to get out of this when we arrived, but there were no refunds, since we booked through [...]. We will never book this way again. The Denny's is also very old, unclean, and we left without ordering. Please try somewhere else.

Try anything in Westlake, about 15-20 minutes down the road. There are nicer hotels and eating places there. Or, if you're going to Oberlin, try the Oberlin Inn and the local restaurants there.
