I normally don't mind bad service if the room is clean and the shower works. But this Days Inn was substandard in a variety of ways.
First was contacting the hotel itself. We called and called with no answer. I finally just let it ring. It sounded after the tenth ring to be some kind of digital noise, connecting to fax or something. I tried for over an hour an never got a pickup. When I arrived and said something about it, of course, I was wrong, I miss dialed or something. Ok maybe I did, but what about my three kids and wife who were using their cells to call also. The clerk reminded me of an adult version of honey boo boo. So of course that is what we called her in private. Not very nice, but it wss funny.
Second problem was the lock on the back entrance or should I say lack of lock. I wouldn't want my girls or wife to stay there. See picture.
The rooms were clean for the most part, however, see the photo of the pillow. Looks like a dried booger was left on it.
When I got up in the morning, I was really suprised by the lack of care on the exterier. It was hot, very hot, like Africa hot, but the lawn was not mowed and was about 8 Iinches high.
There was all kinds of trash and glass and cans on the gounds and in the parking lot. See other close up picture. There were all kinds of cigerette butts out the back entrance and smokers were standing around doing their thing. The hotel should put an ash can and trash can back there. It crossed my mind that this might have been a crack hotel, but the room was much better. The breakfast offerings were more like a snack to tied you over till you got to a resturant. The coffee cups were 6 oz. My one pet peeve, give me coffee and lots of it.
Upon check out I waited to see if I would be asked if everything was ok, I wasn't asked.
The young middle eastern man who checked me out was pleasent but avoid any hotel subject.
The hotel looks to cater to blue collar workers, service techs and truckers. All fine people, don't get me wrong, but I was concerned for my girls.
I would NOT recommend this place to girls or women unless traveling with a whole herd.
If I had to I would stay again but I woukd pay up to $120 for a room not to.
