Upon arrival was greeted by service desk. Very professional lady. Clean rooms and even actually pretty quiet with being right next to the interstate. Would definitely recommend this motel. Also had an awesome Mexican restaurant attached to it.

One of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. I don't think this hotel has been updated since it was built. Room smelled bad. Bed was horrible and woke with severe back ache and headache. Couldn't even use the pillows. They were a mass of fist sized balls. Air conditioner was set at lowest setting, but it felt like... More

This is just an okay place, and not the best option at this intersection. We've stayed at three places at this exit, all using the largest rooms with whirlpool tubs, and the Quality Inn is a better place for a little less money. The Days Inn room was the smallest of the three places (including the Super 8) and the... More

Hotel worked for us - we only needed a place to sleep, shower, and eat breakfast. Pretty hard to complain about anything else when all that was taken care of.

There were no directions for the waffle maker & the lady working one morning was evidently in a bad mood because she was unkind about telling how it worked. Also I had booked this online earlier for 4 adults but there were only 3 towels in the room & we could not get another towel because we were told "all... More

I'm glad to have your feedback and I apologize for your experience. We were very busy and all of our extra towels had been used that day, I will be getting more towels for these kinds of occasions.
