To begin, I travel frequently for business. I never post a review unless the place exceeded my expectations or left me disgusted. This place was the latter. If a person wants to put a hotel under...follow the business plan of Days Inn Mason City.
My initial contact with the hotel front desk via phone left me feeling like I was imposing upon the clerk for asking normal info about the rates and property.
Upon arrival, I was met by a discourteous, deathly ill woman that seemed borderline psychotic. I was practically thrown the the key card and ushered on my way. She had something very important to watch on the TV I noticed.
As I entered the hallway, I was assaulted by a smell resembling body odor, bodily fluids and smoke.
I had reserved a non smoking queen but arrived to a smoking full. I was exhausted from travel so I opted to grab my febreeze and deal with it. I will give the hotel this....when they provide you a smoking room, it has smoke embedded in everything. I think I second hand smoked a carton during my three day stay. Half a bottle of febreeze did nothing.
Topping off the list of negatives were a sink that did not drain, sloppy housekeeping and general nastiness.
I almost forgot, a winter storm dropped a few inches of snow. The sidewalks were not cleared or salted. While walking I slipped twice on the sheet of ice covering the sidewalk.
