Fortunately, the smell of the nearby refinery didn't penetrate the room, as we were desperate as everyplace else in town was full and the next town on our trip westbound was 120 miles way. The room smelled musty, and we both woke up completely stuffy. Beds were too soft but the pillows were too hard.
Breakfast was the worst we have encountered in the 6 weeks of being on the road. Poor selections, grimy waffle makers, unfilled coffee & condiments. Yuk!
Shame on AAA for listing this place as it couldn't meet any reasonable standards. No refrigerators or microwaves drafty and noisy AC, dingy hallways with dirty carpets. Even some of the the refinery workers moved to someplace else.

At the Days Inn Rawlins we strive not only to meet our guests expectations, but to exceed them. We constantly succeed with this goal.
The unjust complaint about the refinery is answered by the facts. The refinery is not an issue as it is 6 miles east of Rawlins and the winds blow any smell associated with the refinery East , away from town. We do have long stay companies, some associated with the refineries at our motel. They stay or leave as their contracts dictate, not as you claim. Our guests enjoy the care, cleanliness and friendliness of our motel and return on a regular basis.
Our hot breakfast offers Biscuits and Gravy, Omlettes, Scrambled Eggs and Breakfast Burritos (rotated out daily), muffins, english muffins, danish, toast, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt and fresh fruit along with a make your own waffle station. Our breakfasts are among the best in town!
Refrigerators and microwaves are available in over 50% of our rooms.
I am sorry for any inconveniences that you state you experienced. If you are in Rawlins again, please stop in and let us show you we are far better than your description.
