“Old looking, loud noises, strange smells”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Checked in tonight and elevator smelled like a boozy ashtray. Got off on the third floor to the same odor mixed with cleaning solution. The peeps in the next room are wooping it up and I can only hope they cool down soon so I can get some sleep. I'm overlooking the pool and hot-tub, it looks nice. Though I can hear, loud and clear, the conversation the people in the hot-tub are having. Thinking, maybe I should have traveled a few more miles down the freeway tonight.

Room Tip: You really don't want to be facing the pool.

First I would like to thank you for taking time to share your experiences with us regarding your recent stay at the Days Inn of Glendale. I would like to extend my sincerest apologies to you for finding our elevator and corridor odors unappealing. I must continue to work hard at finding solutions to clean and sanitize our common areas with a scent that does not offend our guest. I am very sorry you did not find our other guest/ your neighbors very accommodating and polite as they were loud as you put it. Our security guards do roam the halls and inform guest whom are being unruly to quiet down and try not to disturb the neigbors. Unfortunately, we don't get all of them. Once again I'm sorry that this made you feel like you should have gone down the freeway a few miles. I hope you give us another opportunity to show your our true hospitality and stay with us another time when you are in the Glendale area. and see that this past visit was unusual and not up to our high
standards.
Thank You,
Robin Nacapoy

I stayed at the Days Inn in Glendale by chance. I reserved last minute and was met with a beautiful room and wonderful service. The staff was exceptional. They truly made me feel like I was at home.

Room Tip: speak directly to the manager

I stay in this hotel about 4-6 x p/month, for my job. This hotel is terrible. I feel sorry for the many families I see checking in here for a vacation in SO. California. Over half of the hotel has permanent residents. (Approx. 300 rooms). It has turned into quite the dog kennel over the years. With the residents and guests bringing their animals. There seems usually seems to be a dog barking from a room somewhere. This hotel is need of some TLC. You feel like your right back in the late 70's upon arrival. This location although is EXCELLENT. Very close to nice shops, restaurants and all LA has to offer.

Room Tip: Dont get a room next to the elevators or Ice machines.

Thank you for your review of our property I can't seem to find the words to response to your title of Old and Dumpy. Everyone does have a right to thier opinion and unfortuantely that is how you feel about this hotel. My sincerest apology that you feel this way. True the hotel does have different sections that is extended stays for the building is 600 rooms large. We just can't find a way to fill all 600 rooms on the daily basis. Back when the building was built there was a call for that many hotel rooms. But with the other hotels opening in the area we just decided to change the other sections of the property to extended stays, this has helped keep the hotel afloat. The hotel is pet friendly and we only allow pets on one floor. We have stopped allowing pets in the extended stay side of the building since 2008. Every so often we have found guest sneeking in thier beloved pets onto floors they should not be on. Whenever located we ask the guest to move to the pet floor no exceptions. But trying to control all people and keeping them all honest is just impossible but we will not give up trying. Thank you for noticing our hotel's location is great. I sure hope you are treated with our warm hospitality each time you come here. I also hope you find our rooms clean and comfortable too as other reviews suggest. Reviews like yours does help us get budget to do renovations and we look forward to getting some renovations done this year.

My sister and I stayed at this Hotel Dec 28- Jan 3. We had a fantastic time. The hotel was Clean, and had all the amenities you will find at higher priced Hotels. There is a restaurant on premises. The restaurant is big, clean, and has a menu that will satisfy everyone.

The staff was always Friendly and Helpful. We had a Great time at the Hotels New Years Eve party.

The location couldn't have been better for us. We did not rent a car, the public bus system is within walking distance and took us everywhere we wanted to go.

We would definetly stay there again, and Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor. We had a beautiful view of the mountains.

This is an old hotel; however, room was very clean. Very reasonable price. Excellent access to freeway. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful; every staff member we met went out of their way to say hello and to assist us. The front desk clerk, Marisol, even printed our airline boarding passes. This is not a luxury hotel; however, we will stay here again due to location, price, and friendly staff.

Not a real nice place. Good enough for the business traveler looking for a bargain price. Not where I would take my wife for a pleasure trip.
