We had a long drive the next day, so we wanted an inexpensive, clean place west of Phoenix for an early start. Well, the Buckey Days Inn is west of Phoenix and with $10 off with AAA the rate was only $69 plus tax.
I made the reservation by phone a day ahead, and I got a confirmation number. However, when we arrived at 9:30 PM (I had given my credit card to make sure a room was held.), no reservation. The clerk was not very helpful, but after I asked they mentioned that thy did have a non-smoking room available.
If you must stay here, demand a room facing west rather than the gigantic truck stop adjacent on the east side to avoid the constant roar of the trucks parked for the night and those filling up with diesel. Fortunately with the a/c turned up to "hi cool" the noise of the trucks was drowned out. However, even though the temp outside was only 75 degrees, the room never cooled down. I needed internet access and was pleased to read that this motel had free high-speed. However, I was informed on arrival that it wasn't working. The rooms were a decent size, standard for this type of motel. However, they have not been well tended to. I'm sure that the edges of the carpet had never been vacuumed; they were grey with dust. I checked out the bathroom and noticed that one of the thin white bath towls had been used by someone with dirty hands since it had last been washed. I took it down to the front desk and got even a smaller towel in exchange. The one clean bath towel had long threads hanging from it all over. The wash clothes faded from white at the edges to beige towards the center, either from time since being washed or having been washed in dirty water. The beds, however, were horizontal and the wall a/c provided plenty of white noise for sleep. Breakfast in the morning was meager with signs all over warning us not to take any food or drink from the breakfast room. (Not really a temptation!)
Dirty, noisy, ill-kempt, stingy. Recommended only if your desperate and don't want to sleep in your car.!
