Room was reasonably equipped and ok. Beds were good, bathroom was noisy and petite. Forget the breakfast unless you’re starving. Coffee had lots of grounds in it and everything was gone but bananas. Parking is pretty tight. It is easier coming in the back entrance on game days.

Building is terribly rundown. Our Room was missing a fridge. Our TV broke and when I asked the manager to fix it, he said he'd be up in 5 minutes. He never came. There were outlets sticking out of the wall in the hallway. Location is fine, but it is not worth staying here and rewarding these poor business practices.

I wouldn't stay here again. The mattress wasn't bad, but the place and my room was just worn. The walls were thin and the pipes were loud. I travel a lot, and wouldn't recommend this place if there are other available options.

I booked a 4 night stay last week and on the day before I was to leave, the housekeeping removed/stole all of my belongings. I told them I am here for another night and they apologized and said the housekeeping threw everything away not knowing I was booked for another night. They returned half of my stuff and have not compensated me for the rest. Will have to call my credit card company to stop payment. Terrible service! Who empties an entire room of clothes, toiletries, beard trimmer and doesn't call the person to check if they forgot? They clearly were stealing. Don't go!!!

We booked four (4) rooms for two (2) nights this past weekend to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation. At check in we were overcharged by more than $100 as compared to the price listed on the email reservation confirmation we received upon booking. In one room we requested a rollaway. When we initially opened the rollaway bed it had four (4) broken acrylic fingernails and a small blue fingernail file on it. See picture. The sheet was changed upon a call to the front desk. When my husband and I pulled the sheets back in our own room, we found a small larvae in our bed at about knee level. See picture. When we requested a refund we were met with poor attitude, poor customer service by management, and excuses as to why our bed was also so dirty. We were offered a 15% refund for one (1) room for one (1) night. Then management didn’t know how to properly calculate the percentage of refund they had offered. Management was further rude and uncompromising when I politely pointed out that the credit was not sufficient, nor was the math being calculated correctly. All four (4) of our rooms were minimally clean, and smelled dirty and musty, even though the air conditioning was running. I would recommend doing anything possible, even staying in another town close by in order to avoid staying at this substandard motel. Finally I will say to management, please don’t bother to respond with the canned statement that you’ve given every other poor review - “We apologize your experience was s anything less than completely satisfying. Most guests love our clean comfortable rooms and friendly helpful staff. We are sorry we could not meet your expectations.” Check your reviews, most guests do NOT love your rooms as they’re NOT CLEAN. And your staff are NOT friendly or helpful, they are rude and disrespectful. Management in fact walked away from me after handing me two (2) quarters in an attempt to rectify their bad math on a minimal refund. I think WYNDHAM RESORTS & HOTELS would be embarrassed to be associated with this establishment.

We apologize your experience was anything less than completely satisfying. Our rooms are all cleaned by professional housekeepers and inspected by our head housekeeper prior to rental. Housekeeping is a priority for us and customer service is very important to us. Most of our guests find our rooms comfortable and clean and our staff friendly and helpful. It is not a canned statement. We are happy to say most of our guests are very happy with their stays. We are sincerely sorry we could not meet your expectations.

This hotel has not been updated since the 1970’s and is very unclean. Trash was all over the property and the windows and doors were unwashed. My room smelled badly and the bedspreads were stained and there was hair on my pillow and stains under the mattress and filth along the wall. I refused to stay here and left.

I stayed here last night, 4-29-22. signed a reciept for $78 and some change. Looked at my CC statement today and they are charging me $128. I checked out before 8am, didnt leave the room any worse than it was other than I did not make the bed. Place is a dump, room smells like mold and mildew. Bathroom ceiling looks like it has seen water damage from above more than once and never repaired. I will dispute the charges and not stay at Days Inns going forward. New slogan for Days Inn: You get what you pay for, and then get scammed!

*DO NOT STAY HERE* Checked in and the room was not clean (see attached pictures). Addressed front desk staff, no one came to check on the room. There was trash all over outside the hotel (see attached picture). People were yelling and it just didn't feel safe. Called to cancel/request a refund and was told we were making excuses as others from our same group were staying at another hotel. The guy on the phone was super rude and didn't provide good customer service, and we ended up still being charged for 1 night even though we called right after check in to address the issues and have since gotten another hotel.

The motel was a little outdated and the room needed some minor maintenance, but the staff were super friendly and the facilities, room and common areas both, were very clean. I would definitely stay there again.
