Walking into the side door to our room, the hallway was filled with urine smell and the side entrance was a fire exit. The place was dirty, found old socks under tables, tub wouldn't drain, and was just plain dirty!

We have installed an alarm to prevent the side door accessible for other than emergency situations. We have completely deep cleaned the hallway area that had an odor. Shampooed carpets and washed the walls. This has removed any traces of odors. More

The only thing we liked about this hotel is the price!! You pay for what you get as far as comfort but it is clean. However, the night we spent there, I barely slept because of teenagers shouting and banging on doors all night. At midnight, I called the front desk to tell them that it was late and that... More

I stayed here two/three days a week for 13 weeks. Everything I needed was there, fitness room, fresh coffee 24/7, lovely breakfast with awesome doughnuts, from a local bakery that I indulged in sparingly :) There was also fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, cereal, waffles, pretty much something for everyone's taste. So many times these continental breakfasts are limited to... More

Carpets were stained and work, both in the hallways and room and despite assistance from the clerk, the wi-fi was non-functional from our room: ergo, only a three-star rating. Otherwise, the room was comfortable, the locale safe and easily accessible and the hot breakfast was the BEST of any Days Inn I've stayed.

Came for Syracuse University Commencement weekend and stayed in a room on the 4th floor. The whole hallway smelled heavily like cigarettes and the room was only a little bit better (but still smelled like cigarettes). There's only 1 elevator which is kind of slow, so taking the staircase down was always faster especially when everybody in the hotel was... More

As you may not be aware, our 4th floor is designated as a smoking floor. If we have reservations for smoking room that were made in error, we do everything in our ability to accommodate requests, but due to the high occupancy weekend during your stay we were not able to change your reservation to a non-smoking room.

The hotel room was clean and had everything a person needed for a quick trip to Syracuse. It is next to the interstate and the university. My room had a fridge/freezer combo and a coffee maker, ironing board, and hairdryer. I was pleased with my stay.
