I am here on business and a majority of the hotels are booked this week. I am on my third night here and not impressed with this Motel. The rooms are very small and unless you want people looking in your window you must keep your curtains drawn so your room is dark and dreary. I noticed tonight when I... More

My wife made reservation for the two of us as well as her nephew and ill brother. When we made the reservations we were told that we could have adjoining rooms so that my wife could aid her ill brother who was being treated by Stanford Medical Hospital. When we arrived they told us that owing to the fact that... More

The doors had dirty hand prints around the door knobs, bed was horrible, rugs were dirty and smelled, the refrigerator went on &off all night and made a... More

My husband had an important job interview and had his suits in the closet. The next day he found his clothes wet. He quickly went to speak with a lady named Patel and she was extremely rude and short. She was the same lady that was rude when I checked us in. The room is outdated, dirty, and smells. The... More

We were there for a procedure on the wife that was going to keep her overnight. I called late and they said they only had one room left. I later found out that the Senure Games were going on. But I still had to pay, with some discounts, $420.00 for two nights. We stayed at the Travelodge on April 27th... More

The property is outdated, poorly furnished and the rooms are uncomfortably small. Reception was unable to assist in the travelers items promoted in the room. Air conditioning was very noisy. The coffee pot was inaccessible to put water in . This facility is not worthy of the Days Inn name. I understand California rates are high, but to pay over... More
