My family and I wound up at the Days Inn in Wauwatosa in the middle of July to catch a Brewers/Cubs game at the gorgeous Miller Park in Milwaukee. The Days Inn has been a quality hotel chain for many years and there have been many nights where it has been more than sufficient. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case at this location.
From the outside, the hotel looks run down, as if it has seen many years of neglect. With chipped paint and outside doors with no handles, the place looks as if it has seen several changes in ownership with no upgrades in between. Although parking is free, the lot is pretty small and it tough to get to with the entrance on a busy street. The location of the hotel is good and is conveniently located near the highway to get to and from the area.
As for the room, it was one of the worst I've seen. The room had a moldy aroma mixed with years of smoking to create a scent most foul. It was clear almost immediately why the room smelled of mold, as the ceilings were rotting and dripping water throughout the entire stay. The smell wouldn't have been nearly as bad if the bathroom wasn't equally terrible. The shower would not drain making it impossible for all to bathe. When this was brought to the attention of management, it was as if there was not one employee in the entire hotel who knew what to do about it. Other than the issues, the room had decent beds and a television with the essential channels to make the stay tolerable.
The Days Inn has a satisfaction guarantee at many locations, including this one. Because the stay was terrible, they reimbursed the cost of the room and attempted to make the repairs and adjustments to make the stay more satisfactory. Although the hotel was cheap, it is worth spending a little more to avoid an experience like this one.
