After reading previous reviews of this property, I booked a stay at this Days Inn with significant concern.
Happily, they were wrong. I would presently rate this Days Inn at a solid 2 1/2 stars, and I am a very picky, experienced traveler, who is on the road about 40+ weekends out of the year.
Yes, they previously had the dreaded bed bug problem, but it has been completely remedied, and is no longer an issue. Furthermore, the hotel was clean.
Additionally, according to David, the GM, about half of the rooms have been remodeled, and the rest are being worked on. Mine had new carpeting, wallpaper, and bed, and newer linens (with more expected within the next few weeks). TVs are still an older style, but are fine and operable. I came for a good rest, and got it. The bed was quite comfy.
Slight negatives...The lobby is a bit austere, but has a nice tile floor and a new couch that faces a wall unit with a TV, and the downstairs hallway has a very faint mildew odor...not enough to be a problem, and there was NO trace of the odor in my room.
They offer the usual complementary free breakfast, including Carduner's Malted Waffles, to which I am particularly addicted, and fresh fruit...apples and oranges during my stay. Not fancy, but definitely adequate.
They have a small lounge which is open seasonally that serves a limited bar, plus finger foods. Alas, it wasn't open yet for my stay, but will be in about a month or two. The outdoor pool opens Memorial Day.
David, who is very personable, is working very hard to improve this DI, and he is succeeding. It's less expensive than the other two hotels in the area, not quite in their league yet, but definitely offers the best value and a good night's rest, which IMHO is paramount.
The hotel is right off Rte. 84, but up a side road, so there is no noise from the highway.
