The staff were friendly but that couldn't overcome the fact that more than 1/2 the place was under major reconstruction. Which is good for the future- but not for now. Great location. Restaurants, University, and movie theaters. Would recommend it WHEN done....

I needed a room for the night and found this place. Upon coming to the front desk, I was approached by a pleasant person behind the counter, checked in, and given my card pass for my room. The good stuff ended right there. I went to my room and along the way, I spotted a covered pool, construction around the... More

Taking our son back to UVA required us to stay overnight one night. Although we tried to book at other hotels, there were no rooms available except at the Days Inn. Now I know why. I don't mind that it's old...but the rug was disgusting and I had to keep my sandals on the whole time and the bedspread was... More

The hotel grounds are run down. The price was decent for the area. I wouldnt stay there other than for work. It looks like a construction zone with no work being done. There is a Best Buy and Old World Market across the steet as well as KFC. Lots of shopping very near by.

Previously I had stayed in the Econo-Lodge and the Quality Inn behind the Days Inn, and neither was that great a choice. So I looked forward to trying this one. The positives are that it is a...
