I stayed here in Dec 2010 and had a good experience. So I decided to stop here again this year.
Unfortunately, things changed for the worse. The manager tried to get me to upgrade to a mini fridge at an extra $15. Last year it was cheerfully offered at the coupon rate, along with a microwave. Hard to understand as I arrived early, before dark.
Last year I had a room on the west side of the property, which is very well lighted. This year I was put on the east side, with a dimly lit parking lot facing a busy restaurant and interstate highway.
There is a large sign next to the check-in counter stating that the motel management is not responsible for guest valuables or property while staying at the facility. I found that interesting in light of previous reviews.
The (non-smoking) room had a smell of something like a cover up. The shower stall had a strong smell of mold.
The room did not have a brochure or even one scrap of paper explaining anything about the features and amenities of the motel property or the local area restaurants and attractions. The lack of information is obvious when you see the large empty brochure holder on the dresser.
The TV is fuzzy tube type on its last legs. Electrical outlets are inconveniently located. The outlet behind the bedside stand was disassembled with the plate and screw lying on the floor. See photo.
The computer wi-fi was very weak. Took 4 tries to get it working. Frustrating. I wouldn't depend on it for anything important.
The front door lock was missing its bottom screw. The security bar was loose, it appeared that it had been forced and the bottom screw thread was stripped. See photo.
The bathroom door had a lot of pry marks and and a long crack extended down the side of the door above and below the lock. See photo.
I wanted a cup of coffee in the morning but the bathroom area electrical outlet did not work. The bottom screw of the plate was missing and the outlet was loose. See photo. I made coffee using the plug by the entrance door.
The toilet seat was loose on one side and made a VERY loud noise when moved up or down.
A continental breakfast is provided. The orange juice was watery but didn't taste like juice or water. The cereal and milk was OK.
In summary, I made the best of the situation as I was only stopped overnight. However, most travelers would want to avoid this establishment.
I will not be back to any Days Inn if the franchisor allows their name to be used in this way. They must have very low standards for their properties.
