“Best Days Inn ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

Only stayed here because a family member made the reservation for a family reunion. My past experience w/ the chain was not good. This Days Inn was great. Room had refrig and microwave, was in excellent condition and very clean. Room was very quiet - no traffic noise. A/C is not one that cycles on and off that you often get in budget price hotels. For the price (approx. $80 incl. tax) you can't do better in the area. The price includes continental breakfast that was as good as any other chain.

Very comfortable beds, clean rooms, friendly helpful staff. We were very pleased with the breakfast and the attention that was paid to the neatness and cleanliness of the dining area. Convenient location. Will definitely stay there again and have already recommended to others.

My husband and I stayed at this Days Inn for one night. The positives: The hotel is quite pleasant and quiet, the hotel really honors the peace and quiet etiquette people should follow while staying at ANY hotel. The hotel has nice reminders to keep the hotel quiet between 11pm to 6am and we really appreciate that. The hotel is within 10 minutes distance from the West Entrance to Starved Rock State Park, which is great.. Check-in/out was fast and efficient. The hotel is newly remodeled (2009), simple and subtle decor. Cannot comment on breakfast because we missed it, if you do miss your breakfast (served between 6am-10am), McDonalds is literately a few steps away. The pool is quite small but is not a deal breaker for us.

The negative: The bathroom sink is outside the actual bathroom, and is tiny. It is not really a negative, but is worth an observation. If you open the bathroom door from inside, mind the person washing their teeth, that door knob WILL hit him/her in the back.
The bed: We had double beds and BOTH were extremely uncomfortable. At first the mattress felt sturdy and comfortable. Spend a few hrs sleeping and you will wake up with back pain. My husband Loves firm beds so he slept quite comfortable. Therefore, it really depends on how YOU like your bed.

Overall, if you are hiking at Starved Rock and need a close place to spend the night without spending too much $$, Days Inn is a very good choice.

the other reviews i read on this site before i booked this trip were misleading to say the least! we stayed at days in for 3 nights, it is very close to starved rock which is nice. we hiked, rented a boat and enjoyed starved rock very much. the hotel was the damper on our trip. the pool is so small if there are more than 2 couples in it...it seems crowded. it is literally the smallest hotel pool i have ever seen. they advertise hbo. we were there 3 days and hbo went out every single time we would be in the middle of a movie-and would not come back on the rest of the day! LOL it was really weird. also the bed is extremely uncomfortable! my back hurts from sleeping on that thing ( i am 26 with no back prob!)
all in all i had a great time bc i really think if you want to have fun you will no matter the circumstances. hindsight i wish we would have just paid the extra and stayed at holiday inn express or starved rock lodge. next time i guess!

We stayed overnight last Wednesday (3/17/2010) and loved the convenient location, the room, the pool, hot tub, etc. Breakfast was fine. We got eggs & sausage @ BK right across the street to supplement the breakfast Days Inn offered, which was okay. Can't expect a nice, inexpensive room with fridge & microwave, PLUS a gourmet breakfast. We biked on the I & M bike trail between LaSalle and Ottawa, checked out Starved Rock, Buffalo Rock, and Mathiessen State Parks, all nearby. Bed was great, room was clean & smell free. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks !!

I usually never stay at Days Inn's because of the inconsistency of quality - but this place is beautiful. Great desk staff - incredible new rooms - Clean Clean Clean! Great value from A-Z!
Highly recommend.
