I read a lot of reviews of motels in the area before deciding on the Happy Day Inn, mostly chosen due to its location. I was concerned as many reviews mentioned the thinness of the walls. I was pleasantly surprised, maybe I lucked out with my neighbours, but the only noise I heard was the traffic and occasional conversations in the hallway. Because I was staying for 4 nights, I reserved a room with a kitchenette. It was much better equipped than I expected. The fridge is a good size, there is a 2 burner stove with oven, a toaster and a kettle. The fry pan is good quality. A continental breakfast is included with the price, but as I cooked bacon and eggs in the room, I can’t rate the quality of the brekkie. The bathroom actually has a decent sized tub with shower, a hairdryer and plenty of hot water. The towels are a bit threadbare but clean. I found the bed to be very comfortable, with high pillows, not the pancakes many budget motels have. The heat/air conditioner unit is extremely efficient. The front desk staff have all been very friendly and helpful, and the cleaning staff have greeted me with smiles in the hallway as well. The place could do with a lick of more expensive paint but it’s not horribly run down. The hallways do smell a bit of cigarette smoke, I wish the whole place was non smoking but I brought my own febreeze and the room itself smelled fine. Overall, it is a tremendous place for the money spent. I booked through Expedia and got an excellent rate on the room, over New Years. Good value for the money, I would book in here again.
