This property is juts of !-95 about a half hour south of the DC Beltway, near lots of food and gas. The property is fairly large with exterior corridors. Lobby is small and, with the low ceilings, a little claustrophobic. An attempt to make it look larger using a bevy of wall mirrors just made it look dated. Desk clerk wasn't warm and fuzzy, but he was efficient. I was given a 1st floor King, non-smoking room.
Room faced the pool, closed for the winter, and was clean and fresh. Decor was spartan, but I was surprised to find a microwave and small refrigerator. TV was an old "tube style" and and featured some pretty subpar cable reception. TV remote worked only sporadically, even with fresh batteries (you're welcome, Days Inn). WiFi seemed to work fine. I had no issue with noise from neighbors, though I'm not sure I had any on either side or above.
There is a sports bar/restaurant directly adjacent to the Inn on the same property. Good food and drink, plus they were having comedy night, so I got to see some comedians, too.
The continental breakfast is served in a breakfast room next to the lobby., in what appeared to be a couple of renovated guest rooms. This Days Inn served the best continental breakfast I had in along, long time...maybe ever. Not four cereal selections, there are 10. Waffles, sausage gravy and biscuits, several choices of juice, many breads and sweet rolls, plus yogurts, granola bars and a big bowl of cut fruit. All served in a comfortable room with a fantastic breakfast attendant. I was there near the end of the serving window (as is my custom) and there were several members of the housekeeping, front desk and maintenance staffs (unobtrusively) stopping by to give the attendant their breakfast orders. She would fill the orders and give the employees their breakfast to go. I always like to see employers that take care of their employees as well as the guests. That says a lot to me about their priorities.
When I hear Days Inn, my expectations tend to be pretty low...this one in Stafford could start to change that.
