Looked for the more inexpensive place to stay for a weekend getaway to Burlington. Turns out it was the Days Inn. Thing is, I stayed here about a year ago and I remember that it was fine, cost about 60$ (which is about right for what we got...). However, I was not overly impressed with my latest visit for which we paid 90$+/night. We were brought to one of these "loft rooms". Booked a smoking room, preferred a non-smoking room but none were available - so I can't complain about the lingering smell of smoke. The concept and design was cool... But the room appears to be quite old and very worn, rough around the edges. There were cigarette burns in the sofa and chairs. This sofa, I refused to sit on. It had stains, the aforementioned cigarette burns and was so worn that it sunk in in the middle quite a bit . The dust around the ceiling fan and ceiling itself was disgusting. I mean how hard is it to pass a swiffer or something up there? (pictures to follow) The walls, pictures on the walls, and carpet were just so old, to the point where it looks a bit dirty, it's really time for an update. The bathroom was fine, nice and clean. The sheets were clean, butttt found some long black hairs between the bed spread and blanket. So it was clearly not washed, soooooo gross!! I refused to touch anything but the sheets! Something that I think would immensely help is just updating the bed.. making it more presentable, clean, etc instead of looking like a1970s old motel.
The complimentary continental breakfast that was really a nice bonus and good!! Also, the front desk staff were very nice and helpful. I don't know, I'm quite torn over the hotel. Ask to stay in the rooms with balconies maybe (there seems to be 2 different sides...?? Like the loft style side we stayed on had no balconies and seemed much more ghetto then the side with balconies).
