        The bill by the Hotel was exactly $10 more than the Booked.net charge

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        I liked that we called and was able to get a room at the last minute, that was clean, but the price was high.

        We like to watch hbo and the tv listing had it listed but it was not available.

      • Couple

        It was the dirtiest hotel room I have ever stayed in. We kept finding black curly hairs on our sheets and pilloes in our bed, the floor wasnt clean, there was dust and crumbs all over the top of the desk by the tv, the curtains were stained, overall wasnt very happy with it.

      • Family with children

        There was male body fluids on the bed spread when we checked into our first nights stay. They came and got the bed spread and did not compensate us for the problem. Try to explain what the mess was to a 10 year old girl.

        Our room and my mothers room were both located over the top of a 2 pm bar.After the drunks all quieted down ,we fell asleep.Then the homacide cop in the room next to us woke us up discuessing his case on his telephone.The walls were super thin!!! However we did get a good parking spot,under a street light:)

        The location worked for us, right off the highway and close to our family. When I first saw it, I was worried, the hotel does not have a lot of curb apeal. When inside I was pleasently surprized at how clean the lobby was, and our room was the same. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean, and comfortable No complaints, good value for your money.

        Not a lot of varitey for breakfast

        The people in the room next to us yelling in Spanish around 2am until 3am

        Where do I begin? Let's start with the reception. I was asked if I had stayed at Days Inn previously. I said, "No... First time." So where does she put me? In a room directly off of the game room (pin ball, arcades, etc.) and pool area! The place stunk to high heaven of cigarette smoke and in general, old dirty, chemically treated carpeting and over-chlorined swimming pool. The place looked like it was stuck in a 70's time-warp, and it may very well have been in the 70's that it was last re-carpeted. Thanks Ms. Receptionist. Nothing like making a great first impression for a new customer!! OK, now let's walk into the room they gave me. I'm told it's a nonsmoking room. Really? The smell of cigarettes in there was enough to gag a garbage collector! The bathroom floor looked like a science mold project. Not green... but varying shades of brown to off-white and gray grout. Now, this floor may very well have been cleaned and the buildup of whatever the heck has been residing there may indeed have been sterile, but after accidentally dropping an expensive medication on the floor, I dared not consume it for fear of ingesting some human equivalent of "hoof and mouth disease"!!! After blocking off the bottom of the main door with a towel, I was able to reduce the smell from the hallway and game room located directly across from my room. And putting the heating device on low heat and opening the window helped dramatically, though the noisy on and off cycles of the heater, combined with the sound effects from the old refrigerator, reminded me of the sound effects of the laser battles in the original "Star Wars" movie. The sounds insured that I was awakened regularly, and may very well be by Days Inn design, to insure that their customers do not succumb to the noxious smells. And to add insult to what barely could be described as a "fair" room rating, the TV had more nonoperational channels than it had operational. What... did you not pay the bill?
