We booked through priceline and got a great deal on a one night stay at this motel before we checked into our cabin the following day.

The front desk staff was friendly, however our room was not ready by the promised time and we were told to come back in an hour. We didn't mind doing this, but if we were traveling with a family, I could see how this could be a big inconvenience. There were approximately 4 other families waiting in the lobby as well.

The room was nothing special, but adequate. One of the queen sized beds sounded like it was on it's very last legs and was incredibly squeaky, so we chose the opposite bed.

The bathroom was TEEEEENY. So small you could hardly close the door without turning sideways and sucking in. Not terribly comfortable.

Like I said, we didn't go in with big expectations and that's about what we left with. It's ok for a quick stay but I wouldn't have wanted to stay there any longer than that.

I've always enjoyed staying at Days Inn and the staff is very nice. The only thing was we didnt have ash trays, paper, pencils, and hair conditioner as we have had before. Other than that the stay was great as usual and the beds are very comfy.

I got the room for 49 bucks on Priceline. Booked it Friday afternoon to stay that night. I will not complain over stupid things. It was a 49 buck room, not a 4star hotel, so leave the 4 star expectations at home if you stay here. We stayed in 115. It was on ground level which was nice since we had a child. The room was clean, especially the sheets. We thought the bed slept good. The TVs are older, but no need to complain as it worked fine. Huge fridge. There are no tables in room which kind of sucks.
I only have two complaints worth griping about.
My most important concern is bed quality and that passed, so I can overlook several things.
1) the room was not dark enough. Building is like an L shape and all face the parking lot. Bright lights are on the walkway and in the parking lot. Light came in brightly around the room shades and through the double peep holes in the door. Not to mention the bright green lights from clock, tv, and microwave.
2) the wifi sucked. The fact they had free wifi was an attraction to me when picking the hotel. It kicked me off several times and the connection was poor in that it took forever to connect to anything.

Breakfast is average, but can't complain as it was included. Can't really complain about the food. The waffles and biscuits and gravy were fairly good. What stunk was the layout of the room. Forks were in a corner near the microwave and very hard to get to when people are making biscuits and gravy. Very congested area.
