Checked in at 1pm & checked out at 8pm same day because I feared for my safety staying overnight there. Was a large group of men hanging out all afternoon in the parking lot and in front of their rooms, drinking and carrying on and it only got worse as evening came. I decided to get the heck out of there when a few "ladies of the night" showed up and the the group of men followed them to various rooms. This place was loud, scary, and had quite a bit of questionable activity going on. My advice if you have to stay in Madera -- stay across the street at the Holiday Inn Express. I've stayed there twice - nice room, great beds and no scary creatures hanging around day and night. The only reason I booked a room at Days Inn was because I had my dogs with me, but this place was too scary, even for my dogs!!! Called the manager the next day to ask for a refund and after quite a few heated words between us, he agreed to refund me half of my room charge. Another classic case of you get what you pay for....the room is cheap - $55 - but I'd rather pay twice that amount to feel safe and secure. I was scared leaving my vehicle in the parking lot for any length of time not to mention myself.
