I'll be honest. I've eschewed Days Inns in recent years because of some unpleasant experiences in the past; however, traveling through this area of Iowa and getting tired, I started searching for nearby motels and Days Inn had a decent price. One night. What the heck, right? I was very pleasantly surprised, from the welcome I got at check-in to the condition of the room complete with all kinds of amenities I've experienced at Wyndham properties. I can tell from the service and the facilities that the association, which I had hadn't known, has been a good one. I'll be staying at Days' Inn again in the near future.

Best of the economy motels I’ve ever stayed at. Facilities, check in and breakfast all top notch and will stay here again.

Hit or miss experience. The front line staff was polite and friendly. However, the manager continued to interrupt and scold staff for something that had happened earlier. The room was clean; water was tepid, and the sink was slow to drain. For a quick overnight on a business trip it worked.

The new general manager is awesome. So friendly. Helpful. And very much about his guests! I would stay there a million times over !

while the hotel might be a little older, all the areas I was in was neat and clean. the breakfast was great with hot items available. this hotel has a new manager and he was eager to make sure my stay and those that I was around was a good memory. if you stayed before and was not happy, give them another chance. you won't be sorry. also this hotel serves a meal on Wednesday nights for its customers. great idea.

The motel is older and not impressive from outside. The inside is much nicer and more modern. The room was clean and appealing. The motel does need to address slippery shower tub bottom with a no skid surface or a shower skid mat.

The room was not very clean, urine dried down the front of toilet bowl to the floor, lots of hair on the floor in the bathroom, terrible air unit it was either too cold or too hot and it would shut off so lots of outside noise interrupted your sleep. The breakfast was horrible dried out scrambled eggs that were cold, no coffee left, no milk for cereal, waffle maker worked poorly, we were forced to go elsewhere to eat breakfast. I made these issues known to clerk who politely told me there was no manager and they would work on these issues but refused to give any kind of refund or compensation. Horrible stay, sleeping in my truck would have been better.

The room was dirty, no light bulbs in the lamps, walls had dirt on them, chairs hds so much dirt and stains you could not sit in them, fixtures and outlets not covered, no hot water at night, hair dyer was not working called twice to get a new one. Breakfast had no waffle mix, milk, and other things that were supposed to be provided. When coming in the room, it was so cold I could see my breath, the window was left open and took over 4 hours to heat room. We ended up leaving for awhile to get warm.

Business trip. Hotel was very nice, needed a serious upgrade & update. Very helpful staff, friendly & informative about local sites & businesses. Poor internet connection.

The employees were kind and helpful. Check-in was fast and easy. The room was average, nothing fancy, but it did have some issues. The window did not close all the way, it was stuck at about an inch from closing so we could hear people and cars outside often as the window faced the front of the hotel. The door also had about an inch gap from the floor so we could hear people in the hall way late at night and light from the hall way shined into our room. Considering the price we paid, it was a good value. You get what you pay for.
