“not the best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

This hotel is straight out of the 60s. Only "modern" item was cable TV. If you want to see the 60s decor, stay here. Staff was nice. Shuttle to the metro from 8 till 8.

We pulled up to police cars in the front of the building. Our room was in the back of the hotel where we found more police activity. The room smelled and was dirty. I found a top to a beer bottle on the floor. My son did not want to stay there so he stayed with his brother in his dorm room.

Well, first the room was decorated back in the 1970’s. Was supposed to be a Non-smoking room, but you can smell the smoke in the room, and the bed cover had cigarette burns through the covers, as well as burns on the counter tops. Room smelled like Lysol. Bathroom had concrete floor, with cracks, no tiles. Shower had water surge every 2 min, from extremely hot water, to very cold water. Heater/AC did not work in the room. Upon check in, one person was at the deck complaining of just that. Wall’s were very thin, and you could hear everything from normal conversation to bodily functions at night. When neighbors flushed the toilets, its sounded like a jet aircraft taking off. The male desk employee was very unhelpful, and when asked questions acted like it was beneath him to offer assistance of any kind. When I checked in, he copied my driver’s license information along with my credit card info, and left it on the many counter in public view, or for someone to come along and take it. When I asked him to secure the information, he rolled his eyes and tossed it on the counter behind him. You get what you pay for I guess. Unless they update the rooms, and make some employee changes, I won’t come back.

The only good thing I can say about this hotel is it is in a good location. However, we had planned to stay five nights there. We left after two because we could not sleep because the guest next door to us played his TV loud all night long. The first night my husband called the management and they came down at 3 am and opened the room and shut the TV off. They said the guest was "unavailable" so they took care of it. The next night my husband was awakened by laughing females and loud TVs. Needless to say, we checked out for need of sleep.

Also the towels were so thin and worn. Water in shower became so hot that my husband actually screamed when a neighbor flushed their toilet when he was in the shower. I'm disappointed that Days Inn lets a hotel get in this condition.
