“Not so hot”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We arrived around midnight to this hotel which we had reservations for. The clerk was not very friendly to say the least. From the previous poster it seems like this guy should not be in the hospitality industry. The room was very dated and the carpet was buckeled in a couple of spots and looked old and dirty. We were on the 2nd floor of the building in the back and at the top of the landing you could feel the wood was rotted and very week underneath the astro turf/carpet they had over it. It actaully felt like there was already a hole in the wood. It was kind of scary thinking I could break through when going up or down. The nicest thing about the place seemed to be pool. Unfortunately we didn't have our suits and so we couldn't enjoy it. I would NOT go back to this place or recommend it to anyone.

A couple of weeks ago I stopped here before midnight on a Saturday. Just wanted to find a clean room in which to lay down my head for the night. I told the desk clerk I'd like a room for the night and he said he wasn't renting any more rooms because he didn't want to deal with people complaining about noise at that hour. First time I've ever had someone refuse to rent me a room. I'm a pretty clean cut person so I don't know why he would think I'd be rowdy. I went down the street to another hotel and the clerk there was happy to rent me a room. She said she had checked in others before who told her they'd been turned away from Days Inn for the same reason. It sounds like this clerk just doesn't want to do his job. I won't bother stopping here again.

I honestly don't understand the negative reviews this motel gets. Seeing negatives posted about this facility gives me pause in believing any of the negative reviews I read elsewhere on this site about other hotels.

After trying out a couple of other hotels in Frankfort, I returned to this one for another overnight business trip.

The only things I would change about Days Inn are to put refrigerators in the rooms, get rid of the low-flow showerheads and increase the water pressure, and maybe install a few more electrical outlets.

If you want a hot breakfast or a sofabed or like spending $100 a night for a room or have to have someplace that is brand-spanking new, then by all means go somewhere else.

But if you want a clean, comfortable, affordable place to spend the night and don't mind that there's no refrigerator in the room, then by all means stay here. It's close to practically everything in town. Walmart and the major shopping center are just down the road, there are all sorts of restaurants nearby, and you can't beat the price.

I have never experienced bedbugs or rude service here and I have probably stayed here at least 10 times over the last few years. Sometimes I think reviewers simply expect too much. I haven't had a bad experience here except once when the toilet ran all night, and they fixed that when I reported it.

Don't believe the negative reviews posted here. I could stay anywhere I wanted in Frankfort when I am there, and I've been here more than anywhere else.

Room Tip: Rates are good. Use any available discounts to get an even better rate.

Just plain old nasty, filty and musky. Changed rooms but it did not matter. They were all the same. Left and went to another hotel.

Booked this motel online only because they accept pets (was traveling with my dog). The place is old and sad, in a part of Frankfort which has probably seen better times long ago. It was relatively clean, but cheap towels, awful pillows, and the shower was the most economical I've ever seen. The staff don't know what service is. Went for breakfast at 9 am, got coffee and when next turned to get a bagel everything was gone! Nobody cared to mention breakfast was until 9, they just took the trays with the food away. OMG! Had paid for two nights, but left after the first. Better avoid this place.

Once again, a work-related meeting took me to Frankfort. And once again, I stayed at the Days Inn, in the room where I usually stay. Once again, no complaints -- well, except that there could be more water pressure in the shower since it's considerably weaker than what I am used to at home. I usually request one of two rooms every time I am there. The workers are always very friendly, both when I check in and when I check out. I will probably be in Frankfort more than usual next year and the Days Inn can expect a lot more business from me. Not sure what the other negative reviewers are complaining about, I like this place and will continue to stay there.
