I was at a conference at a neighboring hotel but didn't wart to pay their rate. I chose Days Inn on the same block and was completely satisfied (as was my wallet). The room was clean, bed was comfortable and location great. I would stay here again.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

I made a reservation at the Palo Alto Days Inn for 2/20/13 with the manager"Kumar". I called back 5 mins later and apologized but I needed to cancel the reservation. I spoke again to "Kumar". He told me that it was no problem and he would take care of the cancellation.I asked him if he was sure that there was no further action that I needed to take. Kumar said no, he would handle every thing. Well, he handled it alright. He charged my credit card $133.00. I have called twenty times to discuss this with the manager "Kumar" but he is never there and will not return my calls. Everyone else is powerless to resolve the situation.This operation is highway robbery and a big scam. You avoid this establishment like the plague. I certainly would not trust them with my credit card information even if they were the last room in town! They are a ripoff!
