Ask for additional towels and they would not provide additional towels unless we brought towels down to exchange. There were only three very small towels in our double room. The attendant was rude to my daughter.

It's pretty bad. I hate doing a bad review... Everything has a sense of dirt on it. I made the mistake of wiping down the door handles and locks, (because it was just sooo crusty) and what was found on the towel left behind was disgusting. The bed had a large stain on it. The sheets had small holes in... More

The entire hotel felt dirty, stains on the carpet, walls and bedding cover. There was a towel covering one of the ceiling tiles and termite damage on the door. Breakfast offered was less than desirable. Beds were hard as a rock. The only good thing was the shower pressure, however something in the pipes went off at 6am that sounded... More

Had a suite room tub wasn't cleaned. When I ran water in the tub it was brown. Coffee maker was left with old coffee for several days while I was away from the hotel during my extended stay and cups were not replaced.

Whole place had a musty/moldy and smokey smell. Furniture (couch) in room was stained and filthy. Bedding had black staining on it and pillows smelled horribly of smoke. We didn't even make it through the night...checked out early, left and found another place to stay. Wouldn't recommend this for anything except a major overhall/remodel.

The room was average for a Days Inn. Breakfast was not appealing. My stay was for 3 weeks. I checked out early and went to another hotel which was a much better value. Days Inn was a small room with a bathroom that was so small I had to leave the door open in order to fit inside. The breakfast... More

Satisfactory stay although we found the beds a bit hard. Also the price was higher than the Super 8s we stayed in with similar quality. Staff, room cleanliness and amenities were very good.

This property looks a little scary at first glance, however, it was quite nice inside. The carpet in the hallways and rooms looked and smelled new, the paint, furniture, sink counter and bathroom in the room was all quite nice. Only a couple of downsides: the ice bucket had mold in it (took my cooler to the ice machine instead),... More
