Called and asked if the rooms had refrigerators. Was told they did so I reserved a room. Get there, no refrigerator. They "couldn't find them". Place is under renovation but it is probably going to cost more than to tear it down and start over. I will be checking out and staying somewhere else. Maybe try it in a year... More

This site is being remodeled so there are a few inconveniences to put up with, like the lack of an elevator. The rooms are albeit dated but clean and sanitary with decent amenities. here are a decent number of outlets, not all of them easy to access. The bedding is a bot more lush and comfortable than I expected. Breakfast... More

Worst night sleep we have had in a long time. Beware that this hotel is under construction and should not be open for business. Added to this, the heating system in our room was designed terribly. The heat would loudly kick on for 10 seconds, turn off for 10 second and repeat that cycle. We were forced to unplug the... More

The hotel was being remodeled during my stay, but was very dirty. My bathroom sink was clogged, and it took over 24 hours for maintenance to unclog my bathroom sink. There were two beds in my room, one was comfortable, but the other one had an old worn out mattress and box springs on it.

This Days Inn which in reality is simply part of the Wyndham Group of motels and such is good for what it is: It offers a clean, friendly, and cost effective place to stay as one is stopping over for the night enroute. The facility is right off I-35 North and South between Mpls. to the north; Kansas City and... More

We knew when we reserved the room that the building was under a large remodeling project. however we did not expect to be put in the middle of the construction. The room was remodeled and nicely done. There were unfinished rooms around us and the hallways were a mess. Sheet rock dust, nails, screws, etc. There was a large piece... More

This establishment was rated 4 stars when we booked. It no longer is for obvious reasions. Would have left and found a new motel if we'd had the time. Unfinished drywall in room, ripped up carpet in lobby, dust from air hammers, had to ask the guy laying tile in the lobby where everyone was when we arrived. Didn't want... More
