This was our 3rd or 4th time staying at Days Inn West Candler. We were disappointed to hear Donna is no longer working there. Too bad, because she made the place. Without her, the quality of service has gone way downhill. With the exception of Doug, he is awesome too, and the only familiar face from previous years. Seems to be a new staff in place who don't care half as much. For instance - the new lady working the breakfast - you couldn't get a smile or greeting out of her. One morning it was pretty quiet when I showed for breakfast at around 8:30. I went to get eggs and there were only 2 left, so I scraped them from the bottom off the aluminum and took them. Five minutes later a gentleman comes in and opens the tray and of course finds it empty. So he politely asked the woman attendant, "Are there any more eggs?" Her reply shocked the heck out of me. She said, "If you don't see any in there, then no". I'm not kidding, and neither was she! Unbelievable. Then after breakfast I had a simple question to ask the woman at the front desk. She didn't know the answer and tried to blow me off. Again, the place was not busy at this time. I had to twist her arm to get her to google something for me real quick on the computer right in front of her. This is a place that desperately needs good customer service to keep it going. It's not gonna make it on the strength of their dirty rooms and noisy guests. This place suited our needs and we liked it well enough to return a couple times. But after this last visit a future stay is questionable.
