Very unfriendly front hotel staff including mgr. check in time was 3, we arrived at 5:30- got the room key to enter a very messy room- not cleaned yet!! not even an apology from staff. very thin walls- hear everything from next door- only one outlet working in the room, bathroom sink and light fixtures hanging. even at the cheap price, will not stay here again. Also very poor con. breakfast. But I think the worst thing was a smoke detector in the room was covered with a plastic bag and who knows exactly how long that was there!!!!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

Hello I am the General Manager at the Days Inn Bloomington West location and I would like to thank you for providing feedback that I find very valuable in teaching my staff with. I am sorry that your experience here at the Days Inn was less then exceptional during your recent visit. While our check in time is 3pm we try very hard to make sure we can accommodate this unfortunately we had a lot of people not check out on time on Sunday the 24th which results in our housekeepers taking longer to get rooms clean. The front desk staff at the time should have moved people around and gotten you into a room that was ready. I saw that the support leg for the sink in the room was missing and I have had my Maintenance staff already replace that, we are in the process of replacing all those sinks with new granite countertops with correct bracing to improve the appearance of the rooms

We tried to check in early but we were told rooms were not ready. our son stopped in 10 minutes later and were able to get into their room. Have stayed here a number of times. The $$$ is right but......we were disappointed in the return back to the hotel. Waited almost an hour at the airport for our ride back to the hotel. We will most likely look for a different park 'n fly for our next trip.

Room Tip: If doing a park 'n fly, be patient on your return!

Thank you for the review on how your visit the Days Inn Bloomington West was. I will retrain the front desk to make sure that we try to get all guests into their rooms as early as we can. We have already begun to train more housekeepers to accommodate these requests. I am sorry to hear that you waited so long at the airport for a pickup. While we do have scheduled times that the shuttle goes to the Airport for dropping of guest that start at 3:15am, we try to pick up guests on demand for their return flights. The front desk will be retrained in giving proper quote times. So that guests know when and where the shuttle will be.

Arrived to a woman soliciting for sex. Had a clogged sink for 4 nights. Informed front desk of issue 4 times between Thursday night and Friday at noon. Finally was informed Friday night that maintenence is only Monday-Friday. Sink never was fixed. Breakfast was alright. Pool was decent. Manager apologized on Monday and gave a 1 night refund.

Not bad for the price. Little run down. Needs some updating. But for the price it was nice & clean. Breakfast was provided and came in handy not to have to run out to feed the family. Pastries, toast&bagels, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, biscuits and gravy(next day was french toast and bacon), waffles. Parking was a bit of a pain. Chili's resturant is just a few feet from the hotel(we walked over). The drive to the Mall was easy and they do have a shuttle that will take you there too. Kids liked the pool. No hot tub for the adults :( Staff was nice. I called a few times to the front desk and Nicole was very pleasant.

We offer value to our guest during your visit. We are a newly renovated facility that is still in the works of making improvements to the property. We have added new furniture, pillow top beds, Microwaves and Fridges to all rooms and are currently adding granite countertops to the bathrooms. This time of year we do have a lot of guest taking advantage of our Park Before you Fly package which includes your hotel stay, parking and shuttle service to and from the Airport during your vacation. As you mentioned we have a great HOT Continental breakfast for our guest every day from 5am to 10am
