First off, I will say that we had a smoking room, and that was the excuse we were given when we gave our opinion of our stay upon check out. I will note though that it wasn't the smell of cigarettes that was offensive in the room, it was the smell of filth, and we did not pay any less for this room, considering it appears that you are supposed to accept a below par experience when you book smoking.
With that said, the room was very small, we are not overly large statured people and we had to shuffle around the room. The internet connection was weak and constantly disconnected. The room was dirty, we found a used napkin in our bed and our feet stuck to the carpet. Everything was old, the bathroom door wouldn't close, you had to climb into the tub to push it shut. Breakfast consisted of twinkies and other pre-packaged delicacies and you needed your room key to get into the dining room and were then forbidden from taking your well-balanced breakfast back to your fabulous room to enjoy in private.
So, after sharing our dismay with Days Inn staff upon check out, the answer was "well you booked a smoking room". Trust me, there are plenty of other places in Petoskey to stay in for the same price, better yet, head over to Traverse City and stay in the Days Inn there. It is 100 times better and the same price.
