My husband stayed here for two nights on a recent trip to Louisiana. His report of the hotel was "very good". The room was comfortable and clean. The inn is located on a major thoroughfare in Alexandria and is not far from the local mall and many restaurants. Continental breakfast was available and the staff was pleasant and helpful. Can't...

This property wasn't bad, it just wasn't what we expected. We were blessed with a room that had been remodeled. Fresh paint, shampooed carpet, new light fixtures, new tile in the bathroom and a curved shower rod! I do like that curved shower rod. The room was clean though it did have an odd smell. We sprayed air freshener and... More

Stayed here for 1 night in Alexandria and it was very average for $65 a night. WIFI didn't work and that the lady in Reception didn't know when a laundry was (across the road) were both a little annoying. Very average, but not even close to being a great value inn. That they call the chain "America's Best Value Inn"... More

My husband and stopped for the night during a long drive and it was reasonable. We paid $62 for a room with a king bed. The mattresses were old and needed replaced, the bathroom smelled a bit and was overall shabby. It was clean and that was important. The pool was nice but could've used a cleaning. The desk clerk...

First of all, Hotwire needs to get a clue and not rate this as a 2 star. Second, this property is poorly maintained, extremely unkempt and not desirable in the least. Despite making it clear that there was 3 in the room in my reservation with Hotwire, charged me an additional $22.00 to have a room with 2 beds, clearly... More

Rusty railings, uneven walkways, dirty bathroom, roaches, loud neighbors beating their kids, a car broken into - We had to wait for the cops to finish interviewing the victim to check in. We only stayed in the room 2 hours, and had to leave. For this, we were not given a refund. This was through PRICELINE. Someone needs to have... More

I bought the room through Priceline and knew first off that I didn't want to stay there, as I was born in this small town and know about this motel. They were not accomodating, only offered me a King bed, while I had a husband and two children in tow. Asked for a roll away and they refused to give... More

After driving around a bit in Alexandria, my husband and I found the Days Inn. Very reasonable rate, at $48, plus tax for a non-smoking room with king bed. The pool was very pleasant, if small, and we enjoyed a morning swim. The pool is located away from the road, surrounded by the parking lot. The room was large. Besides... More
