Recent guest reviews

The stay was OK, but the facilities need repair and updates.

So many things in the room falling apart: mirror, trim, door, moldy tiles in bathroom, carpet peeling up in corners, the drywall was crumbling in the corners, floor was wet in the entryway by the bathroom and we hadn't even used anything in the bathroom yet, any metal in the bathroom was rusting, no fan in the bathroom to remove the moisture. So many other little things that just made it look so crappy. Ice machine was broken, they had Wi-Fi but it was such a crappy connection that I had to turn it off to get my phone to even work. I have literally never reviewed anything before, but this one needed a review. I really wish I would've taken pictures of all this, but too late now.

The room on the second floor was nice with a high vaulted ceiling, clean and about what you expect for this type of hotel. The room was extremely quiet. The common areas are a bit worn, they could use some new carpet and freshening up.

This hotel is old and need much upgrading. Carpets are nasty. The breakfast is terrible. Not any choice. Wouldn't stay there again.

The bed was firm but comfortable. There weren't any weird or funky smells. The room was clean and the air conditioner worked well. However, the carpets in the public spaces were filthy. Only one ice machine worked, resulting in a lengthy walk through the whole other wing of the hotel. The walls are thin, we could hear normal talking/laughing, then the physical activities of the people next to us. The "adjustable" shower head was clogged and not adjustable and the shower curtain was too short, causing a mini flood in the bathroom. The breakfast was unappetizing. It consisted of coffee, juice, milk, cold and hot cereal, bread/toast and diy waffles. The pool was small but deep. Overall not ideal, but the location is convenient.

Never got my wake up call in the morning; staff was minimally helpful; tub filled with water before my shower was half done.

Not Good. I Will Never Stay at a Days Inn in the Future.

Staff was nice carpet needs to be replace I smelled weed coming from one of the guest room

Threadbare carpet, lines across the TV screen, you could see the mattress springs through the bed covers. In need of some restoration for sure. Days Inn would not be pleased with this hotel representative.

We have used this hotel a handful of times and have been quite pleased or we would not keep coming back. The price is right, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and for our purposes, the amenities are awesome. The only gripe I have is that we wanted to put it on a different credit card when we got there and we were told we could not do that. Also, Ron, the gentleman that checked us in, was very hospitable if not pushy for us to complete a review of the hotel and our stay.

Terrible breakfast. Bathroom needs cleaning. Noisy halls. Not worth the price.

Airport shuttle only runs once an hour. Front desk called my room at 4am asking "who is this?" When I replied you called me, woman responded this is the front desk. "Yes, I know, WHAT DO YOU WANT? You woke me" and she hung up. I had signed up for 5am shuttle, after checking my flight info I realized I could take a later shuttle, front desk called 5am and woke me again. When I got into room heat was set to 90, it wasn't 90 in room. Lowered it to 80 to sleep and woke with it beinh warmer in room. Fridge in room. Only good part

I think were bed's bug. the heating system wasn't working, very hot.

Outdated rooms, my room has a no smoking signs, but inside the room it smells smoke. Toiletries is not complete no toothbrush and toothpaste, they have it but for a charge. For the price range they should have included it. Staff in the lobby is polite but the staff who answers the email queries is sarcastic.

100% of their vending machines were broken and 50% of the ice machines were broken. You couldn't regulate room temperature, the heater was broken. The 'warm' breakfast was either waffles or toast (waffles were o.k.). The entrances were like waalking thru a waterfall (when it was raining) and the parking lots were a maze of standing puddles. The only redeeming factor for this place is that it was cheep, and I got what I paid for.

Front desk are incompetent and overcharged after had made reservation and showed them how much I paid so had to recharge for right amount and had to wait for other charge to go back to my credit card and they seem to do this often then just all about profit and don't care about guest needs.

I just needed a place to sleep for the night and this place met my needs. If you're looking for a five-star hotel, this may not meet your needs.

My son and I were driving to Minnesota to attend the Vikings Monday Night Game. Upon arriving I asked the front desk person, Megan, about the shuttle service.. I told her we were going to the Vikings game and would like to use the shuttle. I mentioned that we signed p for the 4pm shuttle to the Airport and then were going to take the Rail system to the stadium. There were no sign ups for late night shuttle service so I asked her how we could get our return shuttle from the airport since we wouldn't be returning until midnight or so. She told me that we just needed to call in and the shuttle would pick us up at the airport. When my son and I arrived in the Lobby for our shuttle at 4pm. the front desk gentleman asked me if we were checking out. I told him we were not flying home and that we were going to the game. He said that the shuttle is to pick up guests from the airport and take them back when their stay is over. I told him what Megan had told us and he called her on the phone. She said that she did tell us how the shuttle worked but didn't know that we were not using it to fly out of the airport. I told her that I was very specific that we were going to the game. She then hung up the call. The man at the front desk said we would not be getting a ride on the shuttle. So basically Megan lied then hung up the phone.So if I had flown into Minneapolis instead of driving my car they would have provided a shuttle from and to the airport?.

The mattress in my room must have been 30 years old!! Super uncomfortable. I felt like I would've slept better on an air mattress. The carpeting on the lobby stairs was dirty and ripped up. This place is in desperate need of updates.
