Nice enough rooms easy access to the tunnel. Pleasant surroundings even if it is a motorway service station. Price very reasonable. Very quiet. Spacious room. Comfy beds. Tea and coffee provided. Parking no problemMore
- Free Parking
Great for a budget hotel, better than some travelodges and some premier inns.
Check in was easy, the room is clean and fresh, all be it out dated (but I like that).
ITs very practical and with the service station next door, food is easy to find.
although the wifi needs a little help (it is free though)
massive rooms, so yeah we would suggest you stay here, when in the area.
Thank you for your lovely review
I pleased you enjoyed your stay with us
We are a budget hotel but try to exceed our guests expectations
I look forward to your next visit
For a real budget hotel priced at £25-£50 a night I was truly blown a way with a added bonus of being able to take 3 of my dogs if I had wanted to at £10 each.
The rooms are huge. Really big. I hugely recommend booking the sofa rooms. As they are the biggest. You get a bath tub, wifi that works! Easy access to fast food such as Mcdonalds, Costa and other stuff (but at motorway services prices). Really think the hotel is fantastic just wish they opened one near Tunbridge Wells so there was one slightly closer to us as it is quite a journey for us at the moment.
Room for Improvement areas:
* Dated sofa (every other deco is nice and contemporary whereas the sofas just look fuddy and old - sorry!)
* I also hate the toiletries being the way they are dispensed , I do much prefer little tubes but suspect this is for budgeting purposes.
Please keep your dog-friendly policy, large rooms for ever more. Maybe introducing a breakfast bag that can be left at your hotel door in the morning would be another fantastic idea? But thank you Days Inn keep your awesome prices at £50 and below they are brilliant.
Thank you very much for your review
I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us
Our aim is not just to meet but to exceed our guests expectations
Hopefully the sofa beds will be replaced in the near future
I hope we can welcome you back again soon
I was booked in by a company I was working for so not of my choosing. Having said that I could not fault either the accommodation or the staff. The usual tea & coffee facilities are provided and a decent TV.
Food in the restaurant was average for a Service Area.
Maidstone Services are very busy being on route for Dover. A word of warning, if you are a Trucker parking is a nightmare at night. arriving at 20.00hrsI had to park part on the grass verge and access road. They threaten enforcement action. According to the reception staff they don't enforce their threats. Parking appears not to be an issue during the day.
Thank you for your review
I'm pleased you had a pleasant stay with us
Parking in the truck park can be very busy but reception will always be willing to assist with any problems you may have had
I usually stay at the Hilton in Maidstone as it is closer to work, plus we get an attractive corporate rate. Unfortunately no rooms available so took a risk and tried this hotel.
Good price and was expecting something a bit better than a Travelodge.
Check in was nice and easy, pleasant and quick. Room was clean, had everything I needed with a comfy bed. To be honest that is all I need from a hotel.
Free wifi was good. Not particularly fast, but for email and basic web browsing it was perfect. You will not be able to stream movies or watch Iplayer, but you have a TV with a good range of channels for that.
No restaurant at the hotel, but it is built on the motorway services complex so you are only 60 seconds walk away from McDonalds, Costa and another restaurant.
It is what it is i.e. a hotel that you would use to get your head down for a night on the way to or from somewhere. Thats what it is, thats how it should be judged.
I thought it ticked all the boxes, but only half a box for slow wifi.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. . I'm delighted you found the room clean and comfortable
We have experienced a few problems with the Wi-fi but this has now been addressed
Thanks again for your review, and I hope to welcome you back to Days Inn Maidstone again soon
Stayed 1 night for an early Eurotunnel crossing. Would not use again. Lots of noise with people arriving late and departing early. WiFi not very good. "On-site restaurant" is the fast food outlet in the services.
