The first night we stayed at this hotel, a shower cap was provided as part of the bathroom amenities. The next day, housekeeping threw away that shower cap, but did not replace it with a new one. After returning very late to our hotel room the second night, I had to go downstairs to the front desk to request a new shower cap. The front desk staff told me that they do not give out or provide shower caps. When I explained that there had been a shower cap in the bathroom the night before, the staff member told me that Days Inn no longer allows for them to order shower caps. I really didn't want to take a shower without a shower cap as I didn't want to get my long hair wet. So I thought I'd make the best of it and have a bath instead. Well, guess what? Couldn't do that either as there was NO plug for the bath tub! My husband called the front desk and was told that ALL plugs from all the hotel rooms had been taken away after another guest had forgotten to switch off the water and had flooded the room. Apparently, all these plugs had then been placed somewhere safe so that when a guest actually requested one, it could be provided. However, the staff member on duty had NO idea where this 'safe' location was and couldn't provide us with one. So I couldn't shower without getting my hair wet, and couldn't take a bath either as there was no plug.
There is also a huge gap at the top of the curtains and since our room was the corner room overlooking the parking area and main, busy street of Evanston, we had lighting galore in our room. I was unable to sleep because of how bright and noisy it was.
We had also asked for a quiet room as we were in Evanston on business. We were promised a quiet room on the second floor. However, our room had an inter-leading door that connected to a room with a family containing 4 very small children. Needless to say, they were up all night, crying and running around. The same thing the next morning too. We did ask to be moved as soon as we realized that there were so many young children in the room next door but was told that there were no other rooms available.
We had stayed at this hotel last year, and were quiet happy with our experience then. However, with no shower cap, no bath tub plug, noisy neighbours and extreme lighting pouring in from the window and around the doors, I'm not sure we'll ever stay here again. Sad as the bed was extremely comfy, room was very clean and staff were friendly.
