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These rooms need to checked by someone from your chain- They are so far outdated they would have been lousy 10 years ago.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!
