“Excellent location but problems with non-smoking room”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2005

This Days Inn is in an excellent location, right next to Market street and easy walking distance all over the Historic district, to the Battery, Rainbow Row, etc. There is also free parking, though a bit crowded, but so is the Historic District! The rooms are nothing spectacular, typical Days Inn, no luxury for sure, basically clean. There is a microwave and good sized refrigerator in the room, as well as coffee maker, iron and board and hair dryer. The vanity sink is located outside of the bathroom, so this is nice.

Our problem was we requested a non-smoking room and the door sign said non-smoking, but the room reeked of smoke the minute we entered it and they were booked up. The room also had ashtrays, why would you have ashtrays in a non-smoking room??? My guess is when they get booked up, anyone gets it. For this reason, we will not stay there again. All my clothes smelled like smoke and I had to wash even the clean ones once back home. The smell irritated me all night, I had hoped we would adjust to it, but couldn't. This definitely gave us a bad taste about the place, even though it is an excellent location.

We also were awoken about 3:00 a.m. from someone above us making a lot of noise and slamming doors, but this is no fault of the motel and fortunately, it stopped almost as quickly as it started.

So, if you're a smoker, or the smell of stale smoke doesn't bother you, it's a good place to stay. But, don't expect a non-smoking room there. Like my husband said, they're probably all that way.
