“Clean!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2007

We arrived late and went to check in the lady at the front desk was rude, but we didn't care we had been on the road for 14 hours and we were ready to lay down! The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable! In the morning we enjoyed the free breakfast and checked out. The lady who checked us out was very friendly! We would stay there again!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2007

We were told this was a new hotel with an excellent breakfast. This place is OLD, it stunk like someone was cooking curry upstairs ALL NIGHT LONG, the carpet was stained horribly, the rooms needed updating, holes in walls where screws use to be, the room was not very clean at all, the pool area was dirty, the breakfast (if you can call it that?) was horrible, and the entire hotel was filthy.

I am not a prejudice person one bit but it appears to be owned by Indians and it appeared and smelled (curry again) like they lived on the 3rd floor where our rooms were located. All but 2 employees were Indian and this place was the pits. I feel I am reviewing this honestly and I would ward off anyone that plans to stay there in the future.

  • Liked — Nothing, it disgusted me entirely.

Booking our room from my cell phone in the car, we had a little dog and weren't sure which hotels in Mt Vernon accepted pets so chose the Days Inn. We weren't very excited about it since former visits to the Days Inn in other areas were never pleasing. Anyway they had a jacuzzi room available so we took it. It was not good, from the moment we stepped in the room. It had a funny smell, no amenities! No coffee pot in room. Where were all the amenities that we recieved in a hotel the night before? And we were paying 130.00 for this? The vaccuum never touched the carpet at the walls or behing the nightstands etc. Breakfast, donuts and extremely weak coffee if that's what you wanna call it. Looked like tea, tasted like hot water. The staff was friendly but just need some guidance or pride in their hotel if they want to have repaet business. Don't stay here!

We are in this hotel room right now, unfortunately. We stopped here because we were given a good rate for this motel and were told that it is five years old. There is no way this motel is five years old. It's run-down and disgusting. The toilet is so dirty that we're putting toilet paper down before we sit on it. I will not enter the shower without flip-flops. The sheets on the bed are thin and nasty looking. The chairs have holes in them and are stained. The entire room has a perfume-smell to it, as if they put some sort of perfume in the vacuum. Not even the pattern on the carpet can hide the stains. The ONLY redeeming factor about this motel is that it doesn't appear to have bed bugs.

We are trying to get out of our reservation now. Do NOT stay here!

This was the first stopover on a 16 day road trip. Since we were still excited about our big trip ahead, we didn't notice the flaws at the time as much as we would have later on the trip. Our teenaged boys enjoyed the indoor pool. The "exercise room" was one treadmill and one stationary bike in a room with a window looking into the pool area. No t.v. in the exercise room. They had a computer in the lobby for checking e-mail. The wallpaper and door facings needed a facelift. It was obviously due for a remodel but the rooms were clean and adequate. For $60 it was ok.

We had to stay here on our way home from a trip last week. This was the worst motel that I have ever stayed in. The carpet and walls were stained and had not seen a vacuum in a few days. The indoor pool was ok but the vents in the pool area were black and filthy. The whirlpool was green and we didn't even attempt to enter it. Our sheets and blankets had cigarette burn holes in them and they used two flat sheets so our sheets did not stay tucked in. Dead plants decorated the halls. The drain pipe for the washer backed up onto the floor. There were no security entrances from the outside. The continental breakfast was cold cereal or donuts. Spend the extra and stay at the Hampton next door.
