we went as a group of 15, 6 adults and 7 children, room 1 was ok, rooms 2 had bloody sheets still on the bed, and room 3 had hair still in the and around the tub. we phoned the front desk to complain and were told that they only was tubs and sheets every second day. But this was day one of our trip. we were not compensated or management did not acknowledge the issue. Hot tub was not working and the heater for the indoor pool was not working. So made for a miserable stay... needless to say we checked out early and went to a kid friendly motel
If I had been travelling by myself, I would have really liked this hotel. It was clean, quiet, comfortable, well-situated, reasonably-priced, had a good continental breakfast, and employed a really pleasant and friendly group of people. There were a few little glitchy things - we were missing our 'Do Not Disturb' sign, there were no provisions for making tea (as opposed to coffee), no microwave, and - for some unfathomable reason - the tv did not have a guide listing to tell you what was on. The motel is in a really good location, down by the water, but vacant lots and seedier motels on the far side make it just a little sketchy. But those were very minor issues and some were easily corrected. HOWEVER, I think this hotel should rethink their 'pet-friendly' policy, and I absolutely do not recommend coming here with a pet. I understand that the hotel out-dates their pet policy (there are still ancient and confusing 'No Pets' stickers on the entrance doors), but the setup is really bad. Our door opened up to an outside courtyard that did not allow dogs. We had to rush her through the courtyard (past a lush section of grass), back into the hotel, down a hallway, and out to the parking lot. My dog is very well house-trained, but this was asking kind of a lot of her - dogs don't understand that there's a 'right' outside and a 'wrong' outside. The very large property was almost exclusively pavement and sharp gravel, and the only grassy areas we could see had 'no dogs allowed' signs posted. We had to leave the property (through one of only 2 gates, which were right next to each other and a fair distance from our part of the hotel) and take her to a vacant lot across the street. Hanging out in a vacant lot at midnight, in an unpopulated section of town, is far from an ideal situation for a woman with a small dog. If we hadn't booked a second night, we would have left the next morning. As it was, we'd decided to stay a third night and were glad that we hadn't arranged that yet, as it allowed us to find a better facility. This hotel needs to rethink its practice of putting dog owners in suites that open out into the no-dog courtyard (there was another dog next door to us), and they need to create/designate a dog area that's close to the dog-friendly rooms. Otherwise, I have to believe that dog owners would be much happier if they returned to a no-pet policy, and they could choose to stay at a more receptively set-up motel.
We booked in with Days Inn on an emergency trip to see my sister who was dying...we were three seniors sharing a room, quoted and charged at 101.00 plus taxes for the stay. Two weeks later my sister died and we booked with Days Inn once again to attend her funeral...two weeks later in the same season, with the same people...seniors...and we were charged 125.00 plus taxes. When I questioned the change the answer was a pat...we charge more as the seasons change and we get closer to summer. This was the same season just two weeks later! Not impressed. Also, to have the sink to wash up outside the washroom itself was inconvenient as we were sharing the room with my 80 year old mother so privacy was an issue for sponge bathing and doing teeth etc. Don't know if I would stay here again. They also did not make up the beds on the second day.
The weekend we stayed there were more than 30 soccer kids staying as well as many parent parties going on. It took two phone calls to the fromt desk before they did anything about it. I was told there is no limit as to how many people can be in a room- party room was full, next to my head as i tried to sleep. Other than no sleep, the hotel hot tub was out of service and the breakfast was very basic.
Its a cheap, clean hotel option. No real frills, but good prices. Rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. Staff is friendly. On all 3 of my visits (over a 6 year time span), the hot tub has been broken. If you're using the hotel primarily as a place to sleep after a busy day its good, but not a destination hotel by any stretch!
There happened to be over 30 soccer kids registered the night we arrived. From 7 - 9 there was lots of running in the hallways, and at one point they gathered in the courtyard (at the centre of all the rooms) and screamed! One call to the desk to find out when quiet time was, 10 o clock. Then he informed me if the kids were running in the halls, I said they are and they are screaming in the courtyard. He said he would quiet them down, and he did! Within 10 minutes of the call, things were calm again...whew!
When we first arrived at the Days Inn my wife and I were both taken aback by the dated rooms and lack of plugins for cell devices but found that the bed was very comfortable, the whole facility quite well looked after and clean, and the staff friendly and accommodating. My wife was impressed with the indoor pool and whirlpool. The breakfast room was clean and well appointed with a good choice of foods. We spent two days at the Days Inn and would stay there again.
I find this a place I enjoy staying it is close to Okanagan Lake thus the beach, if you like walking it is not that far to the Downtown area,
A good place to stay service was excellent. The lighting is a bit dim but everything else was great.
Everything was great at the hotel except the breakfast. I think a little more should be added to that.
