Recent guest reviews

Very nice and friendly staff. Clean room. Soft and clean pillows.

Arrived very late, staff waiting and ready for us, checkin very quick and efficient. Room and bathroom clean and comfortable, good and dark in the morning. Wifi worked well. Breakfast was adequate (cereal, toast, HB eggs, oatmeal, coffee, juice).

This place needs a face lift! The hotel is located on what seems like the run down side of town... there is no true entrance to pull into their parking lot. We passed it the first time, you either turn into an abandoned Pizza Hut or a friendlys parking lot. The hotel maybe has new carpet that's about it. The room was not very clean and the lock on our door did not stay in place. The wifi was alright. For the amount of money (around $130) we paid to stay overnight was highway robbery!!! There is NO WAY that room was worth that amount! I won't be staying there again... I was not impressed!

The room was very outdated especially for getting the special Jacuzzi room. I wasn't impressed with the price that was paid and how outdated this place was. If want a quick place to sleep and don't care about updates then would recommend.

Perfect for a quick home base of operation. Ideal for just passing through the area. Would not spend a week here no pool etc. Again perfect for a one or two night stand. Plenty of places to eat near by. Clean friendly and you can still get a smoking room!

The staff was very pleasant but the entire hotel smelled of cigarettes. From the moment you walked in the door, to the moment you left, all you could smell was cigarettes.

We left on day early as we already paid the hot tub was not hot the lights where flickering. And no dressers. And quests where loud worst stay of my life

It was a nice clean place overall but had a few things that can be improved. Our stay was for one night but during the night you could hear the staff talking outside the door rather loudly and it was consistent for an hour or so. Woke my wife and I up. Also the free breakfast wasn't much at all (old donuts, toast, and small selection of cereal). But average overall.

Great staff. Breakfast on time and variety, to include newspaper upon request. Quality of the rooms are above for what I paid. Housekeeping are very king!

This iS a convenient spot for an overnight stay. There are many restaurants available nearby. The hotel is situated away from the highway so there is no traffic noise. The hotel is inexpensive and pretty comfortable.

I stopped here on the way to a class. It cost more than a Best Western an hour or so away and the BW was much better. The room was kind of shabby. The staff were not particularly friendly.

Was ok. Not the worst, staff was very friendly. Worth the $85

The staff was friendly and helpful. They went out of there way to provide directions to different locations, even as far as printing the maps for me. I heard that there were problems with this Days Inn with respect to smoking. However, I saw signs of corrective measures being taken to overcome what smoking issues may have existed. Overall, I would recommend Days Inn and I will be there again next year.

This hotel was nothing special. If that's all you're looking for, look no further. It gets the job done...and no more.

Space is a premium. Rooms seem small. Temperature of room was snuggle warm.

Great location, staff was very cordial and kind. Breakfast wasn't always there per times specified but hotel wasn't always busy so understandable. My only complaint was while doing work at the desk in room the heating unit blows right on you constantly. Overall I had a good experience and told my friends the same. I would definately stay there again

This hotel is terrible they put me in one room that had the paper visibly peeling off the wall and the other had no hit water for the bathroom. not a place to take your family for vacation

Room definitely suffered water damage prior to arrival. Wallpaper peeling. Some seams did not even meet. One patch must have been glued on as all four edges were curled over. Water stains on walls and ceiling. Housekeeping staff was meticulous; the room was less than desirable. Second night electric failure around 6 pm. Notified on return around midnight. Asked staff what our options were. Told you can stay here (in the breakfast area) or CHECK OUT! With arthritis in both hips could not manipulate 3 flights of stairs, so went to relative's home and slept the night in a recliner. Electric restored around 6 a.m. No offer from Days Inn to issue a credit. Outtage was to Days Inn only. Nothing else along the highway had been affected. Another day we reported there was no heat in the room. Staff said he would notify engineer. Someone fixed the heat but left it way beyond the highest heat gauge and the chocolate in the room melted. Only No Smoking sign posted was inside the elevator, above the floor buttons. Staff & guests smoked in front of the entrance to the motel and the smoke hung like fog in Los Angeles. Overall the motel smelled of smoke, especially the small elevator. Not sure why Wyndham took over this chain but this particular site is not a good mark on Wyndham's record in my book. For my purposes the location was terrific but I won't stay in the W-B Days Inn again. Except for Karen on the front desk and the housekeeping staff, this place gets the gong on this trip.

I've stayed here many times for work. Rooms are clean & comfortable. Breakfast is basic. No warm food. AC is loud but functional. The tv is outdated. There is an ice machine & guest laundry area. Staff is accommodating. The hotel is within walking distance to Pizza Hut, Friendly's & McDonalds.

Hotel was easy to find even though we were not familiar with the area. Staff was very pleasant. The room was clean and there was plenty of hot water in the shower. The continental breakfast offered a range of choices and the local newspaper was free. The hotel itself is a bit dated, but it gave us very good value for money and we would definitely use this hotel again

Thank you for responding on your stay at our hotel. We apologize that your stay was less than pleasurable. We have noted your comments regarding the entrance and lock in your room. In future please do give front desk a call, hotel usually will try to resolve the issue quite quickly. Our hotel is located on a busy road unfortunately there is a closed down pizza hut next to a brand new Auto Zone store. Our hotel did go through renovations this august which included new carpeting, new pillow top beds, new furniture, new Led flat screen televisions and full face lift the exterior of the hotel. In this case we did not meet your preference of taste for a hotel room. Hope you find what your looking for in your travels.

needs updated

The room was very outdated especially for getting the special Jacuzzi room. I wasn't impressed with the price that was paid and how outdated this place was. If want a quick place to sleep and don't care about updates then would recommend.
