“Worst Hotel Stay In My 60yrs Life”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Four seeking a place with smoking room. Large structure both Super 8 and Days Inn combined; offices side-by-side. Clerk friendly but exhausted. Arms were covered with flea and/or bed bug bites. 4th flr room in back. Darkly lit lot filled with garbage. Got to 4th flr by rickety elevator and met trash cans over filled and surrounded by filled trash bags, empty bottles, paper and debris. Floor around cans sticky mess and soiled sheets beside them. Cigarette butts everywhere. Walkway cracked and chipped concrete. Room stunk. Couldn't turn on light--bulb missing. Turned on bathroom light. Beds made but the spreads in disarray. Towel thrown on rack like had been used. Trash on torn, stained carpet, not vacuumed in months. We didn't leave--paid fee non-refundable. Soda bottle and filled paper sack under bed. Peeling wallpaper splatter stained. Curtains frayed, backs peeling and missing hooks. Coffee pot was missing. Toilet running--syringe & needle in tank. Tub would not drain. Took stairs next day to leave. Every level stairwell corners stained black, discarded sheets, bottles, trash bags, cig butts, food wrappers, condiment packets, and misc. debris--walkway stained yrs. of spilled soda, juice & alcohol; urine & feces. Unsavory people in parking lot. Prostitute performing in front seat of pickup in broad day light next to our car as we were leaving. If there was a way to get my money back on this place, would try. Health Dept. should close. Free internet and fridge a plus.

Do not stay here! This is an absolutely filthy run down joint with a Days Inn badge on it. You can tell the door on the room has been smashed in at one time and I was half expecting to come out to a car that was broken into. The carpets are stained and dirty,previous guests clothes still in the bathroom.Toilet would not flush properly.Old crappy furniture must have come out of a thrift store or garbage dump.No insulation int he walls and you could hear everything.Garbage piled up in several places along walkways and stinking.Cigarette butts everywhere and the room stunk of smoke. Some very seedy characters hanging around the hotel and in the lobby. A local woman the next day was shocked when we told her where we had stayed.She said she was glad we were safe and said guests have been mugged at this hotel. She also said that staff there are stealing from guests.

Room Tip: Do not stay at this hotel. Filthy and dangerous.

Avoid like the plague, unless that is exactly what you want! We were traveling with no ability to check reviews ahead of time and wish that we had. Since we were travelling with pets and they accepted them, we booked and received a ground floor room. If you absolutely must stay here with no other choice (sleeping in your car in a better option) then choose a top floor room, as that was the leak into your room will only be roof/rain water hopefully...and not raw sewage. Absolutely disgusting, with no maintenance or basic cleaning done. Layers of dust and filth in the bathroom exhaust fan, filthy sink with someone's toothpaste spit in it, bathroom door handle off and on the counter, and much more. Disgusting and in need of tearing down, too bad 1 star is as low as a rating you can give as it deserves -5.

The worst hotel stay that I have ever had. The room was very dirty, the bed didn't look like the sheets had been changed the room was extremely cold when we arrived and the heater never warmed up the room, it was presented as a non-smoking room but smelled of tobacco and the staff told us the wrong time for breakfast.

If you value your money and your safety DO NOT STAY HERE.

This is possibly the most disgusting hotel I've ever seen in person. What's worse is that the owner Steven and Violet are aware of the deplorable conditions and yet take no action. They're only concern is to fill the beds.

1. Black mold behind the walls in certain rooms
There are several rooms that have previously been severely water damaged, paint and wall paper literally falling off the wall. The owners solution is to put fans in the rooms to dry them out and continue renting them to unsuspecting customers.
2. Needles and drug paraphernalia
Care about your safety? Then don't reach behind the night stands or dressers if you loose anything. They rent to any druggie or call girl that as the money. Literally, with no exaggeration they have actual hookers renting rooms there. If you stand outside for more then 10 mins you'll see a collection of the colorful characters roaming the parking lot.
3. Pool, hallways, and common areas
The "Pool" is a joke. Its basically a tub of bleach water. Talking with the employees I was able to determine that the outside pool isn't even filtered. They use a pump to get the dirt and scum out of the water and then pour bleach into it by the gallon to make it appear clean.
4. Staff
Talking with the employees specifically the house keeping and maintenance, I have determined that most of them don't care and other half cares but nothing is done to improve the conditions. Although a few employees I tried speaking with were very rude and not personable. The maintenance guy spent all day leaf blowing the parking lot when there is trash littered all over the parking lot and hallways. Not to mention all the repairs that are clearly needed. Priorities.

You get what you pay for applies here. We had booked two nights here and canceled the second! Old, musty smell and not kept up. Worn carpet, mattress, bedspreads and sheets. Paint was worn off toilet seat, cigerette stain on tub, long black hairs on floor (we're a family of blonds...) with other outside debris. Overall the impression unclean!

This was the worst Days Inn that I have ever stayed at. I was there for 3 days, the room was not attended to by the housekeeping staff at all during my visit. When I approached the housekeeping staff they assured me each day that the room would be cleaned while I was gone. When I returned in the evening the trash had not even been emptied and no clean towels. When I approached the front desk each evening, I was told that the housekeeping staff was gone for the day and I could get my own towels from the pool supply. This hotel was terrible and I was not given compensation for the terrible service. Paid full price and had to empty my own trash and get my own clean towels.

Room Tip: I don't think any rooms are acceptable
