This is the worst dump I have been to. Can't believe it is a Days Inn. The rooms are dirty and need to be upgraded. The towels were old and looked like they were used and folded up again. Room 547 has bed bugs. I got several bites on my arm and neck. I am alergic to bed bugs so I am suffering from the bed bug bites. Rashes on my arms and neck and very painful.

While we appreciate your concerns, we do not however have a room 547. May I suggest you contact the hotel and request to speak with a manager in order to identify the correct room to be investigated rather than post such comments that are incorrect. In fact, there has been no "bed bug" incidents at this location.

Worst I've ever seen. Dirty!! Words can't express how dirty this place was.
Stained furniture, dirty sheets, dirty carpet, awful smell ( my husbands hunting camp smells better) and BUGS! Too bad I didn't check the reviews first.
