“Don't do it!!!!!”
Reviewed July 10, 2008

Just stay home if you are planning to stay here. It was a pretty bad experience. It ruined out trip to the central coast. the place was damp smelling and just old and run down. Granted it is in a college town and it was our fault for being cheap...It was 150.00 a night. Pretty bad.

  • Liked — RIGHT next to the freeway for an easy escape

Days Inn is a very average motel---and overpriced. Although all the ,motels in SLO seemed to be higher than most places.
Do not ask for a rollaway. It was extremely uncomfortable, soft and like sleeping in a valley. We were not credited for the rollaway, by the staff when we complained.

The Days Inn SLO was easy to get to off of 101. Just a short drive or mile walk down Monterey street will get you to downtown. I stayed 3 nights with a group of students. The hotel was VERY gracious with our group. This property has two buildings. I stayed one night in the "old" building near the lobby. The room was big, but old with a tiny bathroom (sink, shower/tub and toilet all together) which would not allow two women or students to get ready at the same time. There were no electrical outlets near the mirror in the room itself. I was moved to the newer second building for the last two nights of my stay and was very happy with the HUGE room. The shower/toilet was separate from the vanity and sink. There was a kitchenette area with sink, fridge, microwave and many cabinets. It looks like it was designed for long term stays. If I were to stay here again, I would request the newer building.

The continental breakfast consisted of bagels, muffins, scones, coffee/tea, orange juice and your choice of small apples or tangerines. A minimal effort at breakfast.This was all served in a small lobby corner and very difficult to navigate with other guests. The pool was small with minimal area to lounge.

This was a decent property to stay at and the staff was very helpful and courteous. I've stayed in nicer properties in SLO, but for the price and location it was fine.

  • Liked — convenience to multiple attractions for a good price
  • Disliked — to close to the freeway

I tried to stay at the Days Inn SLO in February. The first room they put me in had a foul/moldy odor. I complained about that one and the next room had multiple problems ... Used cigars on the balcony, dents in the refrigerator, holes in the linens. There was a piece of duct tape (!) on the TV remote holding batteries in place. In short, the room was filthy and I'd had enough.

I requested that they not charge my credit card and I would stay somewhere else. They refused even though I never unpacked, so I had to dispute the charge through my credit card company. This was outrageous customer service--the hotel wasn't even close to full so my reservation had no impact on their potential business. I'd been polite with them throughout and they were rude to boot.

I ended up staying somewhere else in SLO, which was much nicer. The owner there advised me to check tripadviser. The owner was shocked to find that the Days Inn had dropped not only out of the top 10 but into the 20s in the ratings here out of roughly 25 hotels in the SLO area. The owner said it must have happened very quickly (in just a year or so). This was consistent with my experience as I'd stayed at the Days Inn several years before and it has gone down hill drastically since then.

Stay away!

The rooms are older, the beds are little uncomfortable. The property is well maintained though and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the pool. It was very quiet and the staff was helpful.

We've stayed at this top of the line Day's Inn several times when in town on business. The pool is very nice and there's a good exercise room. The staff has always been friendly and helpful.

There are several nice restautants within walking distance. Although you can't see or hear it, the freeway is only about two blocks away, so it's very convenient for getting around town. Highly recommended.

Be sure to book early, because this place is usually very busy.

We were promised a non-smoking room, got smoking room. "The last room available", we checked in at 3:10 PM , check in time is 3:00 PM (we made reservations weeks in advance). The bathroom had only one light bulb above the mirror, and that was in the corner of the ceiling, a hole cut in the ceiling, with an exposed light bulb, no fixture. The bathtub did not hold water. We would not stay here again.
