Days Inn of Clare

Reviewed October 16, 2011

Clare Michigan is proud of it's Irish heritage and the Days Inn equally so. We were treated wonderfully by a great staff. The rooms were roomy and confortable and breakfast was very good.But what clued me to their pride was a HUGH mural hanging in the breakfast room. It filled the entire wall and was painted by a close by Michigander. It was beautiful and a puzzle at the same time.Full of leprecauns hiding in plain site.Long story short,if you need a room in central Michigan with a comfortable bed, good food and a little mystery to boot, this is the place.

First the good; as others have stated the staff was very friendly and while we did not partake of the free breakfast bar it did appear to be a nice feature. In addition there are several stores and restaurants in easy walking distance of this property and it's close to the freeway. The room was also clean, quiet, and with good temperature controls.
On the not so positive side we felt the property was expensive ($120) for the condition of the rooms, hallways, and pool area. Our king bed room was very large but to fill the space we had a desk chair in the corner. Other rooms I peeked at had a small recliner which would have made more sense. Our room had clearly been a double queen room at some time based on the nail hole patterns still visible in the wall. A folding suitcase rack would have saved us leaving our suitcases on flat on the floor. We also noticed that carpet had been pulled up and unraveled at our doorway and a few spots in the hallways. I suspect this may be a result of their pet friendly policy. We also noticed a heavy cigarette smell in the hallway that extended from the entrance to our second floor hallway and even in our room. In fairness to this property you must initial that you won't smoke but some had and the smell never seemed to clear. Maybe most disappointing was the pool area. The area is small with a total of only four chairs and a couple of small tables. The pool is small with a consistant depth of three and a half feet. Vents for the heating and cooling were clearly missing which just made it appear not cared for.
Is any of this in and of itself enough to make us not stay here again, no. I just feel it was $ 40-50 over priced based on other budget to mid priced establishments we've stayed at.

From the minute we walked in until we left - we were treated extremely well. The desk clerk was so friendly and check in so quick. He than offered to get our luggage & take it to our room as there was no elevator. The room was very olean and comfortable. The breakfast had a nice selection. As we were ready to leave - a very nice gal from housekeeping carried our luggage down for us. The owner sure knows how to hire friendly personal - a big Thank you to everyone.

Room Tip: Appreciate to friendly help at the desk.

Clare is a small town. The Days Inn is well located with many restaurants within walking distance. There are two grocery stores nearby. A breakfast buffet with waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereals, fresh juices, coffee, hot chocolate, apples, oranges, yogurt, English muffins and French toast is included. The room has a safe, a microwave and a refrigerator. The indoor pool and hot tub are open until midnight. Frank and the rest of the staff went out of their way to be helpful and to make us feel welcome. We will stay there again if we return to Clare.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back have the best views.

Our stay at the Days Inn for two nights was just what we expected. The hotel was clean and very adequate -- no frills -- just everything we needed for a comfortable stay. AND --the price was right! We would definitely stay there again! Only negative comments is that the pillows were lumpy.

Recieved a wonderful, warm welcome...lovely room and good breakfast. Everyone greeted me and made me feel comfortable.. A lttle more expensive than other Days Inns....but it's an area without a great choice of accomadations.

Recently stayed here for the weekend, to visit with my nephews. Room was clean, staff was pleasant and helpful. After a recent stay at a Days Inn in Knoxville which was a filthy mess we were concerned with how this Days Inn would be. No complaints other than the pool area was very small and staff did not enforce no drinking(people were drinking beer n drinks in the pool area) Not something I want around my kids as they are playing in the pool, so we didnt swim @ night, I feel it is just inappropriate around children my personal preference. Beds were comfy, looks as though rooms were recently redone.Ohterwise This stay was good, Hotel was clean, Staff was great.
