Maybe it was because we arrived at night and it was dark, but we didn't feel relaxed. The room was at the end of a long hall and not on the streetside. The view was a parking lot with garbage containers.

The room was very big and not very welcoming. I think it had to do with the cold lights, musty carpet and a curtain that let in too much light.

The bed was clean but still we were itching during the night and didn't sleep well.

Breakfast was average, you didn't miss a thing if you wouldn't go eat something.

First night we stayed here and it was very clean and comfortable with a clean outdoor pool! The second night we had a room booked next door because of the indoor pool but we ended up not even sleeping there! I Recommend Days in a million times over the one next door!

This motel was the perfect place to stay for a short trip. My aunt is disabled and the room we were given was large to accomodate her wheel chair as well as bathroom amenities to facilitate bathing. The kids loved the pool. The pool area included a hot tub and the area was very clean. Overall the outside and lobby of the building was very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast was decent and was inlcuded in the price of the room. The beds were comfortable but need to be updated with newer mattresses.. The sheets were not fitted for the bed and came off easily from the mattress. The sheets were dingy.
