“Incredible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2007

When I read that a hotel is under renovation I assume, like any reasonable person would, that the hotel would rotate the rooms so that anyone staying in their hotel in the room would get the best experience possible. I rented a non-smoking room with two beds. I was greeted by a room that had a hole in the wall, torn wallpaper and cigarette burns on the carpets. For entertainment we had a 13-inch television with variable CATV reception.When asked to switch rooms to ones "without holes" I was told it was sold out and $10 off the room rate was the best they could do. I guess in hindsight I couldn't complain, the room next door had soiled linen.

Easily the worst hotel experience I have ever had. And that includes my many stays in Eastern Europe, where the rooms are at least presentable.

We were warned that the hotel was under renovations and chose to go there anyway. The staff was wonderful; our room was clean and the stay pleasant in spite of the obvious reno's in the hallways and lobby. We went for a long stroll in the evening to the river and saw much of downtown Edmonton. We look forward to seeing it when the renovations are done. Thank you Claudia and Ute.

This wonderfully located but very run down hotel is finally getting a complete make over.
The warm and friendly staff that has had to put up with years of abuse for the shoddy quality of the rooms is visibly excited.
Lets hope the hotel lives up to its potential.

This was the worst accomodations ever. We got it for $69 per night but it would have been worth it to spend a little extra money to stay somewhere else. Its not in a nice area of downtown and there were no amenities in the hotel or close by, not even a vending machine. There was lots of noise from the hallways and was not the type of hotel where we like to stay. Saving on money in this case was not worth it. It needs renos bad!!!!

Do not stay here!!

I would like to thank the guests for their feedback, without candid
responses from our guests, we would not be able to progress further and
evaluate ways to improve the guest experience at any of our properties.

These issues have been discussed with the property. We are truly sorry for
the experience you had while staying at this hotel.

The hotel has recently had a change in ownership and is undergoing extensive
renovations to bring this property to Days Inn standard.

Your hotel experience was not the quality of service Days Inn represents.
We fell short of our goal to provide quality guest service. Please accept
our apologies."
