3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

For a Days Inn, this is above average. Wish I could give it 3 1/2 stars. For being in the middle of nowhere, it was a great inexpensive stay. A nice clean room for $72.00, is a deal. Very quiet for being semi - near the highway. It is a little older and worn, but worth it. This is no elevator, which maybe a problem for some visitors. No HD flat screen or iron. Service was warm and friendly.
I was weary when I checked in, so the convenient Iron Skillet next door was great. For being a larger truck stop, I did not notice any truck noisy. This is an inexpensive safe bet.

Room Tip: Go for rear of hotel and second floor. Remember, no elevator.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay with us. Yes, our building is older and we do not have an elevator, however we will be putting in new hallway carpeting, and flat screen TV's in all of our rooms in the next few months. There are not irons in the rooms, but they are available from the front desk 24 hours. A large number of our guests, like you appreciate that the Iron Skillet restaurant is right next door and open 24 hours. We are glad that you had an enjoyable stay with us and look forward to having you as our guest again when you are in the area!

Yours in Hospitality,
Maria Rechlin

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I stayed here with friends over the weekend to ski at Cascade Mountain. It was the closest hotel to the skiing area. We were allowed to check in early at 11am, and the staff gave us directions to the lodge and to find food. The rooms were relatively clean and a little small. But you get what you pay for. The pool was amazing though.....very clean and warm and with a hot tub.

The free (included) breakfast was typical with the waffle maker, fresh fruit, and pretty good coffee. There were a LOT of kids staying there, so be prepared to share the pool and the hallway with noisy kids. Also, kids were running around late at night screaming and being crazy, but it calmed down around 10:30pm.

I would recommend this location for the wonderful staff, the location, and the price (I paid 69.99/night).

Room Tip: If you have a lot of stuff, it's easier to have a room on the ground floor so you don't have...
