“Unacceptable”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Having stayed at Days Inn many times over the years, this was very disappointing. I did not expect a five star experience but for the value we received, we were vastly overcharged. I state the following for your consideration and think a certificate for a one night stay at any Days Inn would be appropriate.

l. Broken lamp hanging on the wall.
2. Burned out light bulb.
3. Mildew on inside of shower curtain.
4. Mildew around edge of tub.
5. Unsightly non slip rug in bottom of tub.
6. Mirror not cleaned.
7. Carpet showed signs of wear and age, was improperly cleaned and had stains.
8. Cushioned chair had stains, also with signs of age and wear.
9. The sink drained very slowly, obviously partially clogged.

Not a good experience for a couple of seniors spending Thanksgiving in Helen GA with a newly married daughter and her husband...

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

i was very angry to find out the next morning that our room door doesn't lock. i mean you can set the dead bolt inside the room, and i just walked right in! the door does not lock, and when i man working the front desk decided to wake up because no one was available until almost 8am, and the room i was suppose to knock on had no answer. when i husband told the front desk clerk, nothing was done about our door and no one seemed to care about it.
the room was dirtier that i would expect from a days inn. I stay at Super 8 all the time and this days inn shouldn't be associated with the brand name.

I never got my complementary breakfast or coffee either, because the front desk man slept in and even though it was suppose to start at 7am, which is why i choose to stay there, i like to get an early start and it just ruined my whole day that there was no one to call to complain to, just awful
