I reserved a room with 2 queen beds for the night. I arrived, checked in and was directed to the room. We took two steps into the room and went back out. Garbage on the floor, and beds were not made. After returning to the desk, he told me that there were no other rooms available with 2 beds (which... More

And when I've only got a few hours to be at the hotel, I don't often go for broke. I know it's no Sheridan, and I've stayed at plenty of Days Inns, but the service here is terrible.

People were helpful and friendly, no complaints about the staff. Facility was in need of some upgrading and looked well worn. Breakfast was not as good as we have had at other Days Inn locations.

Biggest concern was the room not feeling clean. The carpets were stained, the bathroom smelled like urine, and some of the towels were either not clean or else they were stained. The rooms were also very loud, with being able to hear people next door and outside. The staff was friendly, but the breakfast quality needed work.

This is an older property that is very unique looking. They have a nice big pool area and the hotel is spacious. Due to it being older, it does need some renovating. They do have flat screen televisions and new carpet. The beds were not uncomfortable and were free of bed bugs. ( I always check as I manage a... More
