We've stayed at Days Inns many times and never was I put off by as much as I was by this particular hotel. As soon as we pulled in, there was a cardboard sign with a posted rate in the parking lot. That struck me as odd. It was an all-brick building that seemed dark and 'institutional' - not welcoming at all. We went thru the front door and immediately there was a 'cage' for the night staff. This was also not welcoming. The lobby consisted of a couple of chairs and a computer with an 'out of service' sign on it. Even the men's room had an 'out of order' sign on it. We wanted a king bed but was told we couldn't have it for the coupon rate (which was same as the cardboard sign) so we settled for a queen bed.
When we got to our room, the bible was open on the table and the toilet seat was up. This made me wonder if someone was using the room, or if this was just the way the staff prepared the room. Since the room was clean and comfy and we were very tired we decided to stay the night. The next morning we went to the breakfast room and the hostess actually stopped us and asked for our room number.
I honestly don't know what to make of this hotel. The staff seemed very nice, and the room was old but fine. Would I go back or recommend this hotel...definetly not. Days Inn needs to give this place a serious makeover, especially when the Quality Inn down the road looks light, bright and welcoming for the same price.
