“Overpriced even on Hotwire”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Supply and demand would negate the price vs quality for this place. If I am paying over a certain amount for lodging then there are certain but minimum requirements. Let's just say the bathroom was not cleaned thoroughly and cleanliness in a hotel, motel or someone's home stems from here. Perhaps my party was not given a recently updated room because we booked through Hotwire at a"negotiated discount" but quite disappointed based on the price paid which was well over $100. The staff was very friendly upon check-in. I need to emphasize.... Supply and demand.

Very nice updated but older motel. Room was quiet and comfortable and the cost reasonable. Desk person was pleasant and helpful. Continental breakfast was good except for waffle which was somehow very chewy. Will stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Not only are there new pillow top mattress, this hotel has all new flat screen TV's,new ownership. I stayed here several years back, not good...but I must say the improvements are showing. There outdoor pool is huge, 4' to 10' in depth which is very nice if there are several little children, there not coming out to far, sun on pool all day. Went in yesterday and it was cool but not bD after being at the beach where the water temps are still 54 degrees. The hotel is old and still needs a lot of work, but if your looking for a good rate and nice bed book here, close to rt.95 and rt.1 Rhode Island beaches, New London just over bridge. I love the Mystic area and this will be one of my new summer stays, yesterday's rate for seniors was only $50.00 great buy.

Room Tip: They do give a little breakfast, but I recommend finding another spot, like the Shack in Groton, Ct...

Before starting to write this review, I had a look at the first three or four. I had to shake my head at how different guests at the same motel can have such widely divergent experiences. Why I wondered? I'm not sure, but perhaps this is it? I read the negative reviews on Tripadvisor and called the Days Inn reservations line directly instead of booking it completely online. I itemized what I expected: no mold, no smokey odor, not in the wing where pets are allowed. When I checked in, the clerk was very correct, read back to me my wishes, and I got exactly what I wanted and had asked for. The room looked neat, clean and-- as the desk clerk had mentioned-- had been recently renovated. The bed linens were clean, the four pillows comfortable, and there was little noise in the hallway. If you need a negative, the room coffee maker pot was MIA, but I had my coffee in the restaurant. The latter was average for an economy motel, which is to say mediocre. But to her credit, the employee there was nice enough to let me in even though I had shown up ten minutes early and she wasn't finished her setting up. Bottom line, I found it a very good value for what I was seeking and the little extra touches of service earned that fourth star. Ask and ye shall receive?
