Overall, this was not a bad hotel. The rooms were clean & the beds were comfortable. Free breakfast was decent, but some of the food looked as if it had sat out for a long time. There is a bar/pub downstairs. It is very clean & inviting. There appeared to be a Mexican restaurant at the hotel, but is currently... More

Upon arrival to the room, the numbers were sideways. The door was all scratched up. We needed ice. The ice machine was broken. The rest of the night was at the best---just so-so.

Did not realize the place was under renovation. Our room was mostly finished. It was clean and ready, but the work that was done was marginal. The smoke alarm newly install was mounted across the ceiling in exposed permanent conduit from one room through ours to the next. Odd. OK for one night.

We were traveling during racing season, so we had to travel longer than expected. This is not a luxury hotel, but the owner is very hard working and courteous. The price was reasonable. We had a room with two king size beds and with 3 people over six feet tall, this was a nice feature. We slept in, so we... More

To be fair, the room was in the middle of updating the bathroom area. I'm assuming they are going to update the entry/exit area, as the outside door was not locked, and neither was the second door leading into the guest hallway. Not secure. But our room door was secure. The main part of the room was updated and was... More

I had a room with a bad news bathroom yet to be remodeled and area around it was under construction. Hallways were unsecured as exterior doors were broken and hallway stairwells full of construction stuff. Could display breakfast foods more tastefully and with more variety. Surprised as a frequent rewards member I got one of the few rooms not finished.... More

Anemic ac blower. If this joint is represative of Days Inn, then your QA is all but non-existent. Had a very good Days inn at Richfield UT on this trip. But Iowa City WB is dingy, old furnishings, and ususually the Front Desk was staffed only with a sign, informing me to call a number. Could not fully close interior... More

A typical Days Inn for the most part. Not quite up to par but a nice place to stay. Located a little off the highway, you don't hear any of the highway noise from the room. The lobby area is recently remodeled as well as the bathroom in the room. The bedding even seemed up to date but they missed... More

This was a newly renovated hotel. So glad West Branch finally has a good place to stay. We had an upgraded room, and even though it is an older motel, it is nice now. Soon, I think it will be even better! Good 4 nite experience! I'm sure we will be back here to stay again.

The staff was friendly and informative. I was told about breakfast in the morning and free wifi. The rooms were clean. There are no elevators but the stairway is an easy climb. I found the key card to be interesting. There is no way to slide it into the door. It simply requires a tap on the box on the... More
