We were forced to stay at this hotel due to a school group assignment. We had to change rooms due to smokey odor. The second room was clean, but general upkeeping of the halls, entrance doors needs some attending to.

We were extremely disappointed to see this review of our hotel.
Guest comments are highly valued and taken very seriously by our management team.
We regret that we were not able to exceed this guest's expectations during their stay regarding the room odor. This hotel keeps up on the maintenance of hallways and entrance doors.
Once again, we value your business and sincerely hope that you may give us another opportunity to show you that we can provide the type of experience that you expect while staying at the Days Inn of Appleton hotel.

Days Inn, Appleton, is a cheap motel that is clean and comfortable. It has free breakfast in the morning. The walls though are very thin. You could hear people talking and car doors slamming very well. You could also hear the people above you walking around. The beds were very comfortable. Since it is cheap there were questionable people staying there. If you don't worry about things like that, this would be a good hotel to stay at. The outside of the hotel showed that it was an older building.

Only facility in area with double handicapped room. Very clean, fresh smell, roomy, staff friendly, helpful and courteous. We did not need a pool, just an overnight stay for a wedding. We could not have picked a better motel for the money plus a coupon available on website. Would stay here again anytime.

This hotel is old (circa 1970) it seems. Stucco walls and exterior. Hotel was pretty clean, but the walls are paper thin!

We stayed on the first floor right next to an exit. You could hear everyone talking right outside of the doors and smell the cigarette smoke from the other side of the wall! With two little ones, it made it very difficult to sleep. Wouldn't stay here again.

I did not have a reservation on a week end with many big events in the area. The staff did a wonderful job guiding me when to call back to see if something opened up. It did & I was able to stay there for 1/2 the price that another value hotel across the street was going to charge me. The room was clean & comfortable & even included a simple continental breakfast. I appreciate this hotel very much & will definetly return!!

If you're looking for a great place to get a good night's sleep & don't care about lots of extras (i.e. pool, room frig) this is the place to stay. The staff on all shifts were friendly & good natured, in spite of our many questions. There are restaurants close & a gas station across the parking lot for drinks & snacks. The airport is a short, easy drive. I would not hesitate to stay again!

The room was spotless clean, and the staff was friendly. I was glad to get the room for fifty bucks too. The hotel is right off the highway, near all kinds of dining and shopping, so the location is very convenient. However, the room was kind of small. (Like the average size a regular hotel room in a downtown of a big city. Think NYC or Chicago.) The bathroom in our room was even smaller. Sort of uncomfortably small for me, but I am sort of a big dude. Also, the air conditioner didn't fully cool the room. We had it on full blast all night, and the room seemed somewhat warm when we got up in the morning. It was in the upper 70's outside at the time, but you'd think the A/C could cool a small room like that with no problem. Otherwise, no complaints.
