“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

It's far from a luxury hotel. My family and I were looking for a place to sleep while we spent time touring Washington DC, nothing fancy. We spent three nights and it was a good place for the price. We would stay there again if given the opportunity. It's perfect place to stay without having to stay in the heart of DC. Close to the Metro to get around if you don't want to drive.

Stayed August 2014

The quality of Days Inn Motels has steadily been in a decline. We booked a non-smoking room. Our first evening in the room, the strong odor of cigarette smoke filled our room. I looked out the window and spotted a man smoking beside our air conditioning unit. I called the front desk and the clerk stated, "Sir, he has a right to smoke as long as it is not in the room." I responded by stating we had a right to sleep in a smoke-free room and we would not be paying a cleaning fee because the smell was throughout the room.
Days Inns used to be a quality, budget-friendly place to stay. Not any more,
In addition, the placement of 40-watt single bulbs in the three-way lamps made the room dark, even with all the lights on.

The place was easy to find right along a major highway. The outside is definitely in need of some updating as are the rooms but they were clean. Victor at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. We had a room on the second floor in the front of the hotel. We didn't hear too much noise from the street and didn't have trouble sleeping. We were right next to the elevator and could hear that going up and down every time so if you're a light sleeper, stay away from the road and the elevator.

The room did have a fridge/microwave. Tried the wifi and was getting redirected to some strange sites on my iPad so I refrained from using it the rest of our trip.

The breakfast was your standard continental breakfast with cereal, waffles, muffins, etc. The room was a decent size and had a good amount of seating. We didn't use the pool but the pool and it's surroundings were very nice.

We stayed here due to the good price and the distance to the Metro station. It's less than five minutes away and very easy to get to. The hotel also has a Target and Wal-mart down the street and a multitude of restaurants.

Room Tip: Get room away from street and elevator
