Cosmetically, and in terms of cleanliness, this Days Inn is probably a bit above average for a Days Inn. I was satisfied with all the amenities in my room (hair dryer, fridge, microwave, etc, but no conditioner - ladies beware). The bed was pretty comfy but I wouldn't complain if they replaced the pillows. The breakfast was pretty decent too, I really liked the fact they had a waffle iron. They have a pool and access to a 24 hour fitness facility down the road, though I didn't use these things. I wish they had a fitness center onsite. One negative thing for me about this hotel though was the service. The manger that checked me out in the morning was just fine, no complaints about her. The clerk that checked us in though didn't appear very professional (piercings and tattoos) and the fact that we had 6 people in need of separate rooms (we had reservations) seemed to overwhelm her a bit and it took a while. When I got back from dinner I wanted to sign up for a rewards account so I rang the bell at the desk and then saw the sign on the desk "Desk clerk is away from the desk. Dial 0 for assistance." But I could hear them in the side room. I understand that they need break time or meal time but I don't think it would have inconvenienced them too badly to come out and help me for 2 minutes. Isn't that what they are there for anyway? But this probably is just about the best place to stay in Spencer, so I would probably stay again.

Front desk folks were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was adequate. We'd been on the road for almost 2 weeks on our motorcycles and and good cereal breakfast is really best. Did wish they had Raisin Bran instead of Froot Loops and Cookie Crisp, but they did have yogurt! Would reccomend to anyone.

Overall this is a decent hotel and a good rate. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The walls must be a little thin since you can faintly hear your neighbors. Two things they should work on are the breakfast items in the breakfast room and the fact they only put 1 regular single coffee pack in your room. So if thier are 2 of you staying then you have to clean up and go to breakfast room for the second. That really frustrates me. I sincerely may choose a diiferent hotel on my bi-monthly trip to Spencer because of the coffee situation.

Our family has stayed at this Days Inn since it was built. We come back time after time because its clean and the service is great - we feel like home. It is conveniently located near a nursing home where our Grandmother lived as well as close to restaurants and shopping . I would recommend it to everyone.

Long time since we used Days Inn, but this one was very good and would stay here again. Prime Rib restaurant was good and Silver Hammer Bar very friendly indeed.

Room Tip: No elevator, take ground floor.
