This property was in very good condition for such a low price. The only disadvantage was lack of an elevator, which made for a bit of a trudge getting luggage to the second floor. Breakfast was good, with the traditional waffle machine. There was no microwave in the room, but there was one in the lobby.

This might just be the worst hotel I have stayed in. The room stunk when we got there. There were ants in the room everywhere!!! Told the front desk and they just apologized and that was it. And the continental breakfast was gross and cold! Only offered oatmeal and make your own waffles.

Not sure about the 2.5 rating,,,, but my stay was a very good one. For my type of travel and experience here I have to give it a 4 considering it's a motel, not a hotel. It is what it is. I had a comfy king bed in a large room with desk and a comfy relaxing chair, coffee table,...

This Days Inn was clean, quiet, and especially well-located for my visit with my son and his family. The only problems I experienced were having no decaf coffee in the room and some of the supplies in the breakfast room running out. Otherwise, a thoroughly satisfactory stay.

There is a smell to the rooms (I tried two of them, they both smelled) and to the corridors. The paint is coming off the doors and the shower curtain is not really new. The breakfast is Ok but very simple. We had great problems with paying our stay as the receptionist couldn't get the payment system to work. It...

Fast check-in. Room was fine. Queen bed instead of double would be nice. We don't need a King. Breakfast offering was very good. Especially liked the fluffy eggs and biscuits with sausage gravy. Very tastey and hot. Checkout quick and then trip to airport was easy route.

Although the cleaning staff and front desk staff were very nice, we will never be back. The front desk refused to turn the heat on in the indoor pool. They did not advise us of rate changes through the weekends. They refused to give us our company discount. They wouldn't honor the online $10 off a night if you stay...

Good place for convenient access from I-80. There were sufficient places nearby to get food. Nearby Kum & Go was convenient for refueling before hitting the road again. Breakfast was o.k. The goal was to find a place to get a good nights sleep and move on.
