We went to Days Inn back in August 2008 , for Labour Day .
Well , very nice place indeed! Well kept and very clean enviroment , with an amazing breakfast available.
The location is great too, very close to the Mall and other big retailers.
Definetely worth staying here.

This Days Inn was very clean and neat. If only all Days Inns were as good at this one!

The only negative, and the reason I am not giving it five stars, is that the room safe charge is $1.50 , and they won't take it off the bill until check out if the safe is declined. These room safes are a cash cow for motels

  • Liked — very clean and neat
  • Disliked — the $1.50 room safe charge. That's the only negative, but caused my rating to be lowered 1 *

We stayed at the Days Inn over the weekend. We booked 2 queen bed rooms. The rooms were a bit small, however it did have a table with chairs and was just what we needed. The hot tub was big and provided a nice spot to relax. The hotel was located by several good dining places (ie. Applebee's, Old Country Buffet...) and a grocery store.

The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful! Upon arrival they quickly checked us in and called up to the room to make sure everything looked good. They also helped us with directions to Spirit Mountain, taxi info and estimated price (It's about $10-$13 to Canal Park +tip).

The continetal breakfast was good for the price we paid to stay at the hotel. Bagels, english muffins, bread, muffins, and cereal along with milk, juice and coffee. I was pleased to see bagels and cream cheese! Thier soda machines were priced fair as well at a $1.25.

Overall we would definately stay here again. If you're looking for something simple and cost effective Days Inn is for you!

This Days Inn is your typical Airport Hotel. It is a very easy drive from the airport right near several basic restaurants, and across the road from a shopping mall. It’s a boxy brick building, with a no frill exterior, but there is a lot of parking set up in such a way that it is all close the door to the lobby.

Check in was fast and easy. The staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly, greeting you each time with a smile. I will say that the lobby could use some updating, or at the least a whole new remodel to get away from the walking into a prison feel you get. It’s cold and stark in looks; think high school hallways.

The rooms however were wonderful. They seem to have been decorated fairly resonantly, with pleasant colors, and new bedspreads. The beds were quite comfortable, and there were plenty of extra pillows, a big plus for those of us who read in bed. The room was quite, I never once heard any noise from outside, and the coffee maker in the room was a plus first thing in the morning. I will say that the bathroom was rather tiny, and the shower head must have been installed for the use of children only. I am only 5’4” and I looked over the top of the shower head, washing my hair required that I bend over.

Don’t waist your time with their free breakfast. The only thing it has going for it is speed. No choices, and the milk for the cereal was warm the day I was there. It may be a free breakfast, but I’m sure it was worth even that cost. Don’t worry the ladies at the front desk will direct you to several nice restaurants near by, with good food that you will actually want to eat.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel when we moved our daughter into UMD. We stayed in a ground level room, which was clean, with the exception of a urine stain on the base of the toilet, and a stained bedspread. At 3:30 in the morning, we awoke to someone standing outside our window, pounding on the window of the room above us. I would try this hotel again, but would request an upper level, and would do a thorough room check upon entry. The continental breakfast and convenient location were great, especially if you like Starbucks and shopping!

  • Liked — low price, convenient
  • Disliked — small, dark room

We stayed in a room with a queen bed, while the room was not large it was clean. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast choices were bagels, english muffins, toast , two kinds of cereal, coffee, tea, apple and orange juice, and milk. Only 5-10 min from downtown duluth and right across from a shopping mall with many resturants close by. Overall a good value.

I have stayed possibly some ten times in this hotel on business trips with durations of just overnight to up to a week. Comfortable, clean and spacious rooms with friendly staff. Walls a bit thin, so your neighbours alarm clock will wake you up unless yours has woken them up first ! Breakfast is continental variety, so you help yourself. Can get busy if you eat at peak time. Situated directly across the road from a shopping mall with various eating places to try. Hotel is set back from road so traffic noise not a problem. Particularly good $$ value outside peak holiday periods. Not much for children to do.
