I was in town for 2 weeks on business and booked here. I was disappointed there was no minifridge in the room. I asked at the front desk if it were possible to get a room with one, but was told its an 'upgrade' and would cost more. My company can't or won't pay for that, so I was stuck. However, other hotels in the same price range provide them in all rooms. Days Inn needs to reevaluate their amenities. No fitness center...bummer.
Pros: Clean rooms for the most part, I did have one encounter with a cockroach, but I feel as if it was a fluke. Maid service was good. Clean beds too. Front desk people were nice. Although, when I complained about the WiFi was told it's because they were at capacity and it was being used a lot. (But, the entire 2 weeks it was like this!!!)
Cons I can live with: Noisy room with window overlooking pool. However, when I turned the A/C unit on, it masked the noise enough that I could sleep. In a non smoking hall, at times the hallway reeked of cigarettes...the room didn't thank goodness. The TV is old, but works.
Cons that kill it for me and will probably prevent me from booking here again: The WiFi is TERRRIBLE. IF I could get connected at all, the connection would drop every 5 minutes...and that's if it even lasted that long. I spent way too much time trying to reconnect and basically got nothing done. Very frustrating. Shower heads are made for very, VERY short people. I'm 5'11" and the shower head was chin height...so 5'5"ish? Limbo in the shower is not my idea of fun and hurts backs too. The restaurant attached to the hotel does not have good food. I had a salmon dish for dinner there and it tasted like it was rewarmed from a freezer. Breakfast was better, but its hard to mess up eggs and toast.
My 2 out of 5 may seem a little harsh, but its based on what I require while traveling. And when its advertised that you have WiFi or Internet (VERY important to a business traveler), and it never or rarely works on the property, its not only false advertising, but makes me rate low.
If you don't mind no internet access and are not tall, this is an OK property to stay at. Otherwise, look elsewhere. I see the manager responds often here. Responding is one thing, actually DOING something about the problem is better. Clearly, nothing has been done regarding the WiFi as there as been previous complains regarding it. :(
