Not the best hotel in town! Service from the guy in the front desk was great but the hotel it self needs a major renovation! The pool is not open and I don't think they are going to get it together anytime soon! The room was clean but the carpet was really old! So if you just need a place... More

This poor place is very run down. The pool had no water, area around it was dirty, with broken lounge chairs and the like. Our room was missing furniture and overall damp, so much so that you didn't want to put anything down on the floor unless it was a shoe. An event was in town so there were no... More

Let me start off by saying that my wife and I are fortunate to be able to travel quite a bit. We are not by any stretch "hotel snobs". We typically stay at budget type hotels and all we really expect is a safe property with clean rooms, hot water and a TV that works. We had a group of... More

Room 109. The Price was very good. I thought the room was nice, clean , no bugs. The young lady at the desk was very nice. I would stay here again. And my pizza from Papas Pizza was very good. I had the deluxe.

My wife and I stayed st Days Inn three nights around New Years. Missing furniture, 19 inch TV, run down looking property, hotel manager told us no extra pillows because of being booked up (we were one of two rooms on backside), not checkout after 11:30 because of other reservations. I seriously doubt that.

We stayed in the suite over the week of Thanksgiving. We had read the reviews and were a little hesitant but after speaking with the manager, she assured us things had changed. She was so right. Kara was the best. Very attentive to us and the other guests that were there. Our room was super clean, smelled good and we... More

We stayed here Oct 30-31, it was midweek, the Oktoberfest crowd had left town and honestly it looked like a ghost town now. Was charged $137 for a king bed for 2 nights, the girl that checked us in was very nice. When we walked in the room, the room smelled like it was over-deodorized, it took my breath away... More

Toilet was nasty and probably hadn't t been cleaned for a month. The room stunk, but the dollar tree had a cinnamon broom which if placed on the heater made the room smell tolerable. Hair all over the bathroom next to all of the bugs. Bathtub too repulsive to take a shower. And to top it off there was blood... More

Stayed here for Oktoberfest, which I go to every year. Reserved a king nonsmoking suite. Shower had clumps of hair in the walls and filthy in general; no fixture over bathroom lights; broken glass in the sink; trash left from pervious guest; no bath towels-you couldn't have paid me to shower there anyways; stain on the walls and ceiling above...
