Days Inn Philadelphia - Roosevelt Boulevard
Ranked #81 of 88 Hotels in Philadelphia
Reviewed October 26, 2005

When I asked a staffer of the pennsylvania welcome center at the interstate for the way to this Days Inn, he told me it's not "a good neighbourhood". And he was right. There may be more dangerous places in Philadelphia but not a lot. The hotel itself is run-down and filthy. The smoking room smelled like a pub 2 o'clock in the morning. The enamel in the tub was peeled off in large portions, the ceiling light was removed. At least the sheets and the bathroom (though damaged) looked clean. If they'd take 20 $, i'd say these places have to exist for the budget traveller . But 100$... that's insolent!

After having just returned from spending 103 nights on the road on a world trip, i had to comment about this hotel and this is the only 1 out of all to get a bad review. First thing you see is the bullet proof shield in reception which told you what sort of area you are in. On the wall behind the counter is a 5 sunburst rating, either they stole it from another hotel or the Days Inn inspectors have not visited in a long while. The uninterested staff on the front counter told us they served breakfast (which turned out to be packet pastries and orange cordial). The room was a smoking room (we requested non smoking, apparently none available). It smelt like it had been smoked in 24hours a day and never aired or cleaned. I was afraid to touch anything in case of catching something. We were fearful for our hire car as to whether it would still be there in the morning. After checking out I had to wash all my clothes as they stunk of cigarette smoke. Never ever again.

Did not expect to see hotel reception behind bullet-proof glass! rooms are old, small, bathroom ready to fall apart. 20 minute drive to city.
Can't really think of anyting good about it except that it was easy locating it. Basically it's a cheap hotel which uses Days-inn name to charge double what it's worth.
