wedding trip

it was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Wanted non-smoking, but got two smoking rooms. The rooms were dirty, the bathroom was old, with multiple cracks in the sink and shower. You had to keep the lights on for the outlets to work. Made charging phones very inconvenient. I would never stay there again.

Perfect for a quick stay.

Clean enough. Good continental breakfast. Friendly staff. They do not have cribs/pack-n-plays.

great weekend

This property is well kept ,unfortunately there is a vacant building adjoining the hotel that is in disrepair it takes away from the outside appearance,I was pleasently surprised when I entered the hotel it was lovely. The landscape around the pool was very relaxing. And the total area was very safe.

adequate, no more, no less

Booked on busy weekend. Noisy, had to negotiate awkward stairs to basement level unit. Well pleased with complimentary breakfast. Good free coffee always available. Flat screen HD TV would have been a plus

Renovating

The room was below average in all aspects except location, it was close to the hospital, which was why I needed it.

Really, really bad

I stayed at this Days Inn two years ago during the power outages after the derecho and had a great experience. This time, seeking shelter from the snow storm, was AWFUL. The front desk clerk was slow and clueless. Her directions to the room were vague and ultimately wrong. After wandering about in the cold and snow on untreated sidewalks for 15 minutes, I went back to the office and was treated very rudely. The room, once found, was not clean. Fixtures were damaged, carpet torn, microwave broken, bathtub peeling, toilet running...but I also realized that the clerk would be more than useless so I did what I could to make things work. And getting out? Were the parking lots plowed? HA. No. Really messed up my car. Don't stay here unless you have no other choice. I would give it no stars, but that's not an option.

Not clean, had bedbugs!

Stayed at a wonderful hotel in this chain elsewhere, so booked this one. It was a shabby motel. When I got in bed after midnight, I saw bedbugs! They gave me another room but I did not sleep well. Checked out in the morning, cutting stay short and asked for refund. Manager was not on site, so I still have to try for refund.
