We stayed one night for a relaxing getaway. Being a frequent traveler and light sleeper I typically ask for a room away from noises from vending machines and elevators which is what I did when booking the Days Inn of Petoskey. There were two front desk attendants while checking in, both were waiting on customers. After finishing up with one of the customers the one girl stood there for a couple of minutes before asking if I needed help. She checked me in and let me know I would be all the way down at the end of the upstairs hallway away from any vending machines.
We went to our room which was small, dated and next to the highway which is on a hill. I have stayed at a lot of hotels and B&B's and this was the worst experience I have had, the traffic noise seemed like I was in a tent next to the highway. We did not have to worry about anybody in the next room since I do not think the entire upstairs on the side we were was occupied. After a restless night of sleep from the road noise I awoke at 6am to a banging noise like a wooden screen door slamming every couple of minutes. When we went down for the free breakfast and I found that the noise I woke to was from the cafe door slamming shut whenever someone closed it. Although the hotel was not very busy the breakfast area was rather small and full when we arrived, the selections were very limited compaired to the free breakast at other hotels I have stayed. You cannot take anything out of the breakfast area so we left for a local resturant for breakfast rather than stand in the lobby and wait for a open table. I would never consider staying here again.
