This place is gross, mold growing in the shower. The pool was nasty. Guest service was sleeping in a guest room when I arrived at 7 pm. Breakfast was awful. I got ripped off 70$ for this place I would have rather slept in my car. Maybe next time I will...

Terrible experience!

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: Poor breakfast
Mold smelling room, running toilet, old, broken tv, to name a few items from our stay. We were never so happy to leave a hotel. Would not stay here again.

Awful experience.

Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast
This hotel was really terrible. The musty smell, substandard "breakfast," broken toilet, and old television with lines running through the picture really made a lasting impression on us. We were very happy to leave and will not be staying at a Days Inn again.

This hotel met my expectations

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, nice pool for little kids
Cons: rooms need some major updates
The hotel was nicely kept on the outside. When entering the building you could tell it was in news of some upkeep. The front deal was prompt and courteous with both check-in and checkout. The room was not in great shape. Very old and I was a little uncomfortable not having windows that locked as I was in the main floor. The pool was very nice and seemed to be in condition. This was a pretty inexpensive trip and that was nice. I would probably go there again.
