The building smells, first and foremost.... The rooms are adequate but in need of renovations. The carpet is dingy the room smells of mildew the pipes are loose.... It is an OK stop if you need a room. The linens were clean and the bathroom clean. WiFi was awful.... Not sure what else to say....

I like rating things like the check boxes, but hate writing stuff. The room was a room. I stayed in it. Was sufficient for my needs.

I've stayed at 2 Days Inn's now and likely won't come back. The place was pretty run down and dirty. It worked as a place to sleep, but I certainly didn't look forward to coming to Days Inn at the end of each day. When asked, the front desk people were responsive and helpful.

Horrible horrible place! Worst service you can possibly imagine. I had called to get permission for my animals and once I got there, I was refused service, left to be on the street with my handicap daughter and animals. Heartless front desk clerk, just heartless. Thankfully he did not charge my credit card for the room since he kicked us... More

When I booked 2 nights through Orbitz this seemed to be the only place in the vicinity that had a vacancy. My room was on the 2nd floor. There is no elevator. The carpets on the stairs and the hallways had spots and reeked of cigarette smoke. My "non-smoking" room, smelled of a heavy scented air freshener. The top bed... More

At our check in, the front desk personnel were courteous and helpful. The location is just off I-35 which makes it easy to find. The day we checked in the area had received a lot of rain so the carpet on the steps leading to the second floor were muddy and dirty. This didn't leave a very good impression. The... More

Stayed here because it was one of the only hotels that allowed pets over a certain pound limit. My family traveled for my sister's graduation and we were coming from multiple states. Checkin was just weird . . . the entire time the front desk associate was on his cell phone speaking with his girlfriend; was very rude and not... More
