Recent guest reviews

Room was not cleaned after first night, had to call for towels after long day. Very hard to control heat in room, had to keep getting up all night to turn it on and off as it would get way too hot with fan on low but too cold if off. Bathroom door would not close all the way without a lot of force. These are just a few issues we had.

Had a suite and it was spacious and clean. The staff here is very accomodating. would definately stay here again.

Close to everything, clean rooms , friendly staff, there is a restaurant practically in the parking lot, close to the mall and many stores

This was the worst hotel stay I ever had. The room was nasty. Walls dirty n peeling paint, floor not vacuumed, burn holes in sheets, pillows stained, trash behind night stands n bed. The room smelled, tv was old n all stations would not work n the ones that did were full of static. The keys cards kept deactivating and would not work to.use pool. The kitchen for breakfast was absolutely disguising. The entire place and all the food were swarming with fruit flies. The cabinets were covered in fruit flies. Showed up at 930 am saturdsy to eat and was apologized as the woman there did not know where the girl was to.put out all the food to.be offered. The waffle maker was also broken.

Place was a bit grimy and not really cheap. Just recently stayed at the Motel 6 for the same price that was 100 percent nicer.

Went here to visit friends. Stay was as expected for price.

Unhelpful front desk, TV and wireless didn't work, no airport shuttle. Pretty much just a roof over your head and a marginally comfortable bed.

While I knew that my hotel stay would not be a luxury stay given the affordable price, I expected a Days Inn would at the very least be OK. This room was not at all clean. It had years of build up, unusual drip marks down the walls and when we returned from breakfast our previously white colored wash clothes were saturated in a brown liquid I can only guess was rusty water dripping from the shower head. The breakfast would be adequate for someone without allergies. I was counting on a fruit bowl or something edible for my daughter who is a celiac and needs to eat a gluten free diet. Unfortunately the fruit bowl had one apple which looked as though it had been dropped many, many times. Needless to say, my daughter did not eat. The coffee was fine and my son enjoyed the make-it-yourself waffle and a muffin.

It should be closed by the health dept. I did file a complaint

The 1st room we were given was filthy. The floor was not vacuumed, the bathroom was dirty and had hair on the sink and toilet, and the bed sheets were dirty, and the bed had hair in it. We were moved to a 2nd room - it too was dirty, but a bit better than the 1st room. A motel janitor had to come and clean the toilet which had urine on the seat and back. We will not return to this motel. On the positive side, the breakfast was satisfactory in the suites building and the receptionist was friendly and courteous.

I should have listened to the warnings by the other reviewers but didn't. I have been kicking myself ever since. Traveled with wife and sister so needed a room with double beds, non-smoking. We were "down graded" to a smoking room with a king bed. So I got to sleep on the couch! Worse yet, the bath drain leaked water into the next room soaking the carpeting, so I got to sleep on the couch in a "swamp"!! Anything good I could say after all this is irrelevant, not that there was anything good worth reporting. Just learn from my mistake and STAY AWAY.

Our family stayed for 3 nights. We paid for a suite. It was very small for a suite. There was only dbl beds in it because that's all that could fit in there and they were so hard and uncomfortable. The pool had ants crawling all over by it and my husband and I tried using the exercising equipment and it didn't work. There was only a treadmill and a bike. We had to go to check in atleast 5x a day because everytime we left our key to get back in our room didn't work. I do want to compliment the staff though they were super nice!

Although you do get what you pay for, this hotel had very little heat, luke warm water, and the parking lot was poorly plowed. I would not recommend.

There are 2 sections to this hotel. The older, 2 floor external corridor type and the newer, enclosed suite type. We stayed in the older section. The room was fairly clean (which, for one nights stay is all I ask for.) The internal door handle was on the floor when we entered the room, and kept falling off during our stay. There were many stains on the carpet and a few insects here and there... not roaches or bed bugs. The new section has a small pool and hot tub. The pool water was rather cloudy and there was black mold growing on the internal rim of the hot tub and small clumps of hair floating in the water. We had to leave before breakfast was served, so we can't comment on that. It's located on a busy road with many food options. Overall, better than the next Days Inn we stayed used Binghamton, believe it or not.

Room was unclean. Dirty towel on back of door, clothing tags in drawers bath mat was already very wet. Clerk was not efficient.

I was first in a "motel type" room and it had an awful smell so I got changed to another room that was OK, then the hot water got broken so they moved me again but this time to the "big buliding" now this is a better quality room since its newer so everything is nicer but it's hard to justify the price. The gym is not nice at all but there is a nice breakfast.

This was the worst hotel I ever stayed at . It was filthy and even left a day early.

We were fleeing Hurricane Irene and so we took our dog with us. My wife was 4 days from her due date, so making sure she was comfortable was of prime importance. After looking at several hotels, we choose this one as it seemed the best value for the money and was 'pet friendly.' We booked a suite with a King bed. Once we got there though, we were told that the owner does not allow pets in the building where the suites were! It was too late to book anywhere else (everything was filling up with people fleeing the storm). The manager at the reception switched us into a regular room with Queen. The room wasn't much bigger than the bed though, so our dog didn't have much room to move around. We were not given any type of discount either for being moved to a smaller room. They did not charge us though for pet fee, so I guess that is something. The manager was very helpful otherwise, directing us to the best hospital in the area in case my wife went into labor, giving us menus of places that delivered, etc. However, if they are going to restrict what rooms you can have pets in, that should be CLEARLY posted when you are booking.

nice to get a suite at a motel rate! All the amenities!

[...] Pictures on site are of the "internal" rooms. The "external" rooms are typical Motel type and not as nice.
