So, I guess my first review was too harsh and thus couldn't be published. Either way, I'm back to spread the word that this hotel is a nightmare. The rooms were filthy, our bathroom ceiling leaked, I didn't feel safe or secure and the list goes on and on. Instead of ranting, all I'll say is that this "affordable" hotel in Old Saybrook is a grade A dump. Options are limited, but I would highly recommend staying somewhere else.

The only silver lining to this place was the staff. They were helpful in getting our room switched several times - mostly because the ones they kept showing us were a mess.

I would rather sleep in my car for a week than stay in this place for a night. You've been warned.

Room Tip: Be very, very selective. There are very few "good" rooms.

Recently traveled to the shoreline for business, I had previously stayed at liberty inn and although had no problems decided to try a new spot to compare. I have to say I'm glad with the choice as I find the location of days inn prime and very close to either Westbrook or old saybrooks downtown quarters. The staff was very accommodating and kind, and the room was exceptional for the rate I paid. Slept soundly and had a great continental breakfast before I checked out, quaint and peaceful place to stay during a trip to the shoreline. Would stay here again.

King bed was very comfortable. The room was pretty clean except for a little debris on the bathroom floor. Front desk attendant was very nice and helpful. It looks like some updating has been done but the rug should be next. This was just for 1 night and it was fine.

Well I'll start by saying I wasn't planning on staying at a hotel in the area, but my truck broke down heading home.. When my triple A tow arrived I requested a recommendation on a place I could stay the night. I was pointed in the direction of Days Inn, and I have to say I was very pleased with the decision. They gave me a triple A discount, and considering the circumstances and the time of night, another discount on top of that. Front desk was very nice, and the room was comfortable. Breakfast had a surprising variety of choices including eggs, home fries, waffles, bagels, english muffins, toast and fresh pastry's. I had some breakfast, grabbed a cup of fresh java and the paper kindly provided to me by the front desk, and was on my way. I'd stay here again given the chance.
