Chose the Day's Inn because it was the only place we could find listed for Portage at the Travel stop on I-80. It was like going back in time, room had no wireless internet and the only electrical outlet to recharge phones and DVD players was on the bathroom counter. Very drab decor, like it hadn't been updated since the 1970s. The tub tile either need regrouting or a good scrubbing. No bathroom vents which caused the door hinges to be rusty. The heat worked okay but during the night it started to make funny noises, I think it was the fan. Beds were fairly comfortable.
Breakfast was minimal; bagels/defrosted danish/oatmeal packages. Not even sliced bread for toast, and unlike most places now it had no eggs or waffles. Not even peanut butter. The cream cheese had been frozen (it crumbled instead of spreading) and may have turned before it was frozen (had a very strong cheese taste). Staff was friendly.
This place has clearly seen better days and I was surprised when we got off I-80 to find that there were many other choices closer to the Interstate. Even with an AARP discount we paid over $20 more than we did for much nicer places along I-70 and I-74.
