I was a guest at the Days Inn on 3rd Street in Terre Haute in April, 2003. I received a great internet rate, and having passed by this hotel many many times I decided to give it a try.
One person was on duty when I checked in around 9 PM. She was not at the desk, and I waited at least ten minutes for her to return. My reservation was found easily and check-in was completed quickly once she got there.
Before I go on, I should say that at one time this was one of the best places to stay in Terre Haute. Unless I'm mistaken, at one time it was a Sheraton and then it was under another brand. Larry Bird had some affiliation with either this hotel or its restaurant for a while. I'm glad his name is off of it because I think it would embarrass him.
Now, the place has been allowed to become run down. It doesn't have a "safe" feeling, and all entrances are open without requiring a room key, so anyone could walk in the hotel at night. The drapes are old and faded, carpets are thin and stained, and as a result of neglect, it just has the feel of a "cheap" hotel, which, considering the rate I paid, I suppose it is. I was disappointed, though, because I do recall when it was the hotel of choice. I attended ISU and many of my friends' parents stayed there when visiting. If you're on a tight budget, you might give this hotel a try, but don't stay here if you're trying to impress someone.
On the morning of my check-out, there was no hot water so no one could shower unless they wanted to freeze. Because of that problem there was a ten per cent discount given, which I think was a good gesture. Again, I would not say the place was terrible, but I would likely not return.
