I have to say my experience at the Days Inn “Cowboys Stadium” in Arlington, TX was a less far below the standards I expect for a Wyndham property hotel. Usually one can say you get what you pay for at the lower tier hotels. This one overcharged to the point where it is literally highway robbery. To top it off I paid 80 dollars for parking at my own hotel?! The only reason I agreed to spend 200+ a night for a hotel of this quality was the location being directly across the street from the stadium. What good did that do me if I still had to pay for parking and 80 dollars are you serious?

These rooms need to checked by someone from your chain- They are so far outdated they would have been lousy 10 years ago. Lets start with the amenities, or lack there of. If you want a fridge, microwave or safe you have to pay an additional 5 dollars per item a day. The TV in the room looks like it came from the mid 80’s an old tube 20 inch television that had such a bad screen everyone on TV had a stretched head. The beds were throwbacks too or more likely from an era long gone along with the old torn up comforters that made you feel icky to even touch.

So do you want to plug in your phone charger? Most people do these days but good luck at the Days Inn in Arlington. There were 2 plugs at the standard level so you had to choose between the lamps, TV and alarm clock or your laptop and charger. There was however one plug in about 6 inches from the ceiling! Good luck using that one. My guess is there was once a lamp or something hanging there but old man time has really got the best of this place.

Ice machines, what ice machines? To be fair on 4 floors one ice machine did work. They make it known there is not an ice machine on the first floor although I still don’t understand that. So after you wait 5 minutes for an old elevator to finally get you to the 2nd floor that one is broken, another 5 minute wait and finally a badly working machine dispensed about ½ a bucket of ice, gee thanks!

Let’s talk about the view, you open your first floor window to see an eight foot fence instead of the stadium. Yet you requested a “stadium view” I guess you can kind of see it through the cracks! The AC was also ancient and was either, 20 degrees to cold or too hot. Never was there a happy medium.

So once again, usually these lower tier hotels simply give you what you pay for. My bill was over 500 dollars for 2 nights and I received nothing to say the value was worth it. My guess is this is a profitable hotel- Location, location and more location. But Geez people could you not at least update the place so I don’t feel like I was robbed? I was indeed a victim of highway robbery and I would have simply left after the first night or even first minute after the door opened but there it was--- NON REFUNDABLE!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and stay offsite (take a shuttle to game) It's not worth it when you stay...

We thank this guest for taking time to comment. We are sorry that he had issue with the room rate and that he is upset about the parking fee. All the hotel rates in Arlington, Texas are much higher during special event because of the higher demand. We work hard at making sure we stay competitive with similarly located hotel. We recommend booking early if you can to get best rate. Regarding parking fee, since this guest stayed for two nights, the parking was included in the price of his room. We do not know how and under what circumstances he ended up paying $80. During Cowboys home games, the parking fee for guest staying one night is $65 per car and the parking fee in our area is generally around $80 for non-guest. He would have paid $80 only if he was not a guest and it sounds like this is what happened. The hotel was recently renovated and has all new carpeting, padding, high-end pillowtop beds, bedframes, bed skirts, bed throws, and drapes. Our room with Stadium View has all new carpeting, padding, high-end queen size pillowtop beds, bedframes, bed skirts, bed throws, drapes, furnitures, lighting packages, extra plugs and decorations. Guests who expect more should stay in our Stadium View room. The elevator was completely upgraded to new safety standard and its hydraulic system replaced. It has a new controller, pump, wiring, elevator door, door operator, door closers, door safeties, and new state of the art control panels. There are two ice machines that produces over 700 lbs of ice each day. Sometimes, in the rush of things, we have guests that fill their ice chests resulting in guests coming after them to have to wait, but there should be ice made every 15 minutes or so. To get a view of the Stadium from a room, you will need to get a Stadium View room. None of our other room type will have a view of the stadium. Our HVAC system was also upgraded this Summer with state of the art green HVAC system. We have looked through the records for the month of December and have not found any record of guest having informed of the hotel of the problems reported by this guest. Had we known this guest was uncomfortable or had any issues, the staff would have worked hard at making the guest comfortable and addressing his issues. In the event, we are unable to satisfy the guest, we will help guest relocate to another hotel and refund his money.

We booked a room for 2 nights, 4 months in advance of a Cowboys game. We arrived mid afternoon a day early and were happy they had our room available early - for $100. As advertised, the hotel is right across the street from Cowboys Stadium, and we even had a view of the Stadium from our room! PERFECT. Nope - the pass key to get in the room didn't seem to work. I asked the girl from the front desk to help and even she couldn't get the door to open. Finally after more than 20 swipes and jiggling the handle we got in. That issue was never fixed while we were there - always had trouble getting the door to open. The room was clean but there was no fridge. Met the housekeeping lady in the hallway and she was very nice, asking if there was anything we needed. There was no hot water for showers the first morning, second & third mornings it was hot with cold shots every few seconds. I made coffee in the room, and after the second cup we heard a beep sound, and a breaker (we assumed) blew in the room, no lights in the bathroom. I called the front desk - after waiting over half an hour without lights, we left for the morning. The internet worked the first night, but after that, I had to call the desk to reset their modem/router every time I wanted to connect, and the internet ran very slow - slightly better than dial-up. The walls were so thin the people in the next room were talking quietly, but it sounded like they were in our room. Free continental breakfast was offered in the tiny lobby with 5 small bar tables, each had 4 chairs - it was very crowded. We went out for breakfast. In order to park in the hotel parking lot for "free" we had to stay 2 nights. This hotel is certainly not worth the $250/night we paid.

Room Tip: If you are staying during a Cowboys game weekend you will be paying through the nose for the locatio...

We thank this guest for taking time to comment. We are glad we liked our location and that he found our housekeeping lady nice. We are sorry for his frustration with the room electronic lock. All our electronic room locks are regularly cleaned and inspected for proper functioning. In view of the lock issue, we do not know why this guest did not move to another room. Our staff would have worked hard to make this guest's stay comfortable and trouble free. The keycard only works if it is inserted into the lock a certain way as the magnetic strip is only located near to top edge of one side of the keycard. Fridge is available but at an extra cost. There was no report from this guest that he had any concern about the availability of hot water in his room. We have checked his room and found no problem with the hot water. It is possible to trip the breaker in the bathroom area if something else that draws large amount of amp - such as curling iron happens to be also plugged into same plug as the one used by the coffee maker - while it is making coffee. We have also double checked all the plugs in this guest room. Regarding breakfast, we always recommend eating breakfast early to avoid the crowd - especially if the game is at 12:00pm noon. For that game, the lobby was very busy with lots of guests checking in and checking out. We also recommend avoiding checking in or checking out anytime near kickoff time as our lobby is very busy during those times. Our parking package includes the parking fee ($80 fee during Cowboys Game for non-guest) if you stay two or more consecutive nights around the event date. All the hotels room rates in Arlington fluctuates depending on room demand and supply availability. We work hard at keeping our rate competitive with similarly located hotel and our room rate is usually lower if you book well ahead of time when the supply is plentiful.
