I can't quite decide whether to give this property 2 or 3 stars. It's an older "average" motel; you're not really expecting great comfort from a "Days Inn." The rooms themselves are OK; mine was a bit small and dated but housekeeping seemed pretty good. For some reason, the floor of the bathroom loudly squeaked whenever you walked on it. The 2-bedded rooms have only doubles instead of queens, but that's an annoyance at many hotels and motels. Breakfast is pretty bad -- no hot foods (except a waffle maker) and low-quality bread products -- but that's what I expect from a USA motel of this sort. The indoor pool was closed for unspecified reasons. The front desk staff was friendly (although I wish one clerk hadn't told me the outlet mall closed at "9 or 10" on a Saturday night when it actually closed at 8).
But the reason I almost gave them 2 stars was because of a roach problem in my room. My first day passed without incident, but on the second morning I killed a roach on a wall. I didn't think that much of it, but that evening I found another roach crawling on a pillow. I called the front desk staff to ask "what the heck was going on" and whether they had a roach problem. The clerk very sincerely stated that she had worked at the motel for 2 1/2 years and that they had never had a problem with bugs. I told her that seemed a bit odd (when you see 2 roaches in one-day, that's almost always the sign of a "problem"), but the staff was so friendly and earnest that I was inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt. I presume they will spray in response to my "incident" and, hopefully, future guests will not report similar problems. BTW, the desk clerk did nicely offer to move me to another room that night, but since we were already "tucking in" -- and I didn't think it likely that the bugs would be confined to only one room -- we declined her offer.
