“Very substandard for a Days Inn”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We stayed in room 122, not clean at all. The towels were dingy/dirty looking, very thin, should be tossed out with the trash. The bath room fan was not working so the steam from the shower was not vented, you could smell a slight smell of mold in the room. The potty was turned off when we got there, the reason we found out was that it leaked water past the ball and cock valve. The flange bolt covers at the base of the potty were missing the white plastic covers and the bolts were rusted. The caulking around the base was falling apart and looked dirty. The cabinets were past their prime, the door that hides the fridge was missing, old hinges were the only thing left. I don't think the carpet has been cleaned, maybe never? Over all the room should not have been rented.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This has to be the absolute worst place I have ever stayed. I booked three rooms and they all smelled as if you were sitting in a moldy ashtray when they were non smoking rooms. The curtains had nasty stains. When we came in from the Casino about 2:30 am there were three cop cars and one guy on the ground. You are right next to the freeway so sleep was not an option. Dont let the pictures fool you!!!
