“No manners-”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Doing a late of traveling I have tried to pick hotels that I know offer nice/good guest services. I failed in this one. First I reviewed the hotel on Daysinn website (which by the way is part of the Wydham chain) I then called the Days Inn and made the reservation. If you do not know what "MR" stands for them let me tell you-"meeting room. Seriously, why would a hotel use a meeting room as a guest room. The room itself had 2 bathrooms (ok, that;s a plus-right? Wrong the lightbulb in the 1 bathroom blow out and so really you will walk a8ft in the dark to use it. Unfortunately the other bathroom was 25 feet away. Speaking of feet-the TV was 25 feet away from the bed-anyone got a pair of binoculars? The remote control wouldn't work unless you stood up and walked in the middle of the room, The desk where you might put your computer was 25 feet away from the beds as well as the refrigerator. Now let's comment on the beds-murphy beds-the kind that when not in use lift up and go into the wall. The problem here is that the framing is made of metal and lays flatly on the floor-how many times can 1 person stubbed their toes on it. The price for this room-Im sorry, isn't worth it. I have to mention that a front desk staff member needs manners and a lesson in customer service. I work in customer service and I'm sorry, she was just down right rude. When i asked if there was a room on the first floor (this is what I prefer and it is listed in my preferences with Wyhdam) Iwas told-you get what you are assigned. That should have been my first sign to cancel the reservation and leave and go right now the street to the Oasis Hotel or slept in my car. As for the pool-green-and this is an indoor pool-it had several spots where the paint was completely gone on the bottom. The hotel tub was even green-I have stayed in many hotels and indoor pools are not green because of the paint. Where's the bananas and yogurt? Not much of a selection for breakfast items.

Room Tip: Try the Oasis just a few yards down

We apologize for the gentleman's bad experience with a burned out bulb. We do rent this room almost every night. It is large and in demand by hunters, fishermen, and families who appreciate the extra space and the extra bathroom. The 32 inch tv also has a builtin DVD which is viewed easily from the entire room. Sometimes when only one or two rooms are left, a good fit might not be achieved. We should have suggested this guest take a look at the remaining room and be satisfied before signing in. 100% satisfaction is hard to achieve but we do try to give all guests a satisfactory stay. Our goal is to have only positive reviews to comment on. Thankyou

Nothing remarkable about this property. OK place to stay when passing through on mind-numbing I-90. No fridge, no microwave. Typical free breakfast offerings. Weak wi-fi. Pool is "green" though, and when I asked, I was advised that it was the paint. My kids wouldn't set foot in it for that reason, however; they don't see pool water like that in Phoenix, swimming pool capital of the U.S. :-)

Kudos to the staff for genuine friendliness, though.

The Days Inn website gives you a great deal on a room, but it automatically makes a reservation at this hotel that you cannot cancel or change. They charge your card the full amount at once, and it is non-refundable if your plans change. The site does not make this clear when you make the reservation, which is just plain dishonest. If your plans change, you are just screwed. I will never stay here again, and I'm in the Chamberlain area 5 or 6 time a year. There's several hotels in the area including across the river in Chamberlain. Vote with your feet folks...don't stay here.

These "best rate" reservations are a great savings. Unfortunately guests stop once they see the price and do not read the qualifications. They are put through to the properties from Central Reservations and the properties are to charge them in advance. Some are non-refundable. Please read the entire ad and ask questions if you are unsure of the deal. Call the property direct and we will be glad to explain it to you and help you get the best deal.

Everything was fine but the girl at the front desk is always on her cellphone, and had it in her hand every time i saw her, always talking on her cellphone, "WISH I HAD A JOB THAT I CAN BE ON MY CELLPHONE ALL THE TIME"

We stayed here one night this summer while on a family road trip. It was an adequate place with a comfortable room, a small (and slightly greenish) pool, and an average hotel breakfast (waffles. cereal. etc). There was nothing particularly good or bad about this Days Inn.
