Reviewed September 9, 2013

We spent two nights there. Our special requests had been: a smoking room, good internet connection and good connection to the main attractions of the town. All we got was a very comfortable smoking room. The WiFi connection was poor and there was no bus to town, so we had to spend a lot of money on taxi. The hotel is outside the town and the taxi fee was £20 for each way.

However, our stay in Cambridge was gorgeous: we had a cruise on the Cam and we spent many hours visiting the sights of this outstanding universitary centre. My photos will help you to take a decision. Viisit Cambridge!

Room Tip: Find a hotel in the centre of the town,

We stayed the weekend of aug 31 2013. First impressions were ok- the building is tired but the room was a good size and seemed clean. Odd the sink is outside the bathroom though. I stayed on a sat night and there were was a lot of noise from other guests talking in the corridor until about 5:30am.

Also, it stunk of smoke in in our room - it turns out there are smoking rooms in that hotel and although our was non-smoking (as the communal areas are meant to be) it reeked. Not sue whether the was from under the door or via the a/c.

The duty manager acknowledged the problems abut could only offer a poultry 10% refund as recompense for a totally unsatisfactory stay and lost night's sleep. To add insult to injury the hotel have charged us for the room even through Expedia had already billed us (they insisted this wasn't the case) so we've paid twice- currently trying to resolve through Expedia who are struggling to get necessary details from the hotel.

I have emailed the hotel to complain but received no response to date - it seem they don't care.

Stayed here for a night as myself and some friends were spending the afternoon and evening in Cambridge. Location for geting to is excellent, right off J28 of the A14. It cost £20 for a cab to take us into and back from town. The motorway services which are right next door have all the amenities you would expect, including a 24 hour McDonalds!
The room in the hotel was a twin room and it was very clean, modern, and comfortable. You get a swipe card to get in and out. Staff were very friendly. Price was good too, through booking.com - basicvally it is a very clean and tidy budget hotel.
Bathroom which had toilet and shower was clean. Very good power and heat on the shower, and a large cubicle, you could actually sit down in there - it had a large ledge. Excellent. Separate en suite wash basin and mirror etc in the room.
It wasn't noisy, although we were positioned at the back. I can highly recommend the Days Inn at Cambridge - we will certainly be back.

First impressions were good, large clean room just what we wanted. However we were kept awake by a group having a party in the room next door and the corridor till 5am. They were also smoking (the smoking rooms were right next to our non-smoking room), the smoke came under our door and through the air con vents. We had a baby in our room and all our clothes still smell of smoke.

We booked at Days Inn as we were having trouble finding an alternative, and what a pleasant surprise. Obviously targeting the business traveller it was clean, the staff were friendly and efficient, and being co-sited with a motorway service centre had a wide selection of food options available. Having stayed here we would not hesitate to stay at others in this group.

We booked two twin rooms and on arrival one of the rooms had clearly not been cleaned. The beds had been slept in, the bin was full of rubbish and towels were thrown around the room. However when alerting the receptionist attention to this she promptly swapped our room from a cleaner one. It is miles frm the centre and cost £19 in a taxi one way!!! The receptionist advised to to get a taxi and get a bus half way as she thought it was cheaper. It actually was more expensive. Rooms basic and dated. Would not stay here again
