Terrible hotel next to major construction

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Hotel Not as advertised, rooms were small and unclean. shower and bath were chipping floor tile loose and crack in drywall. I do not recommend this hotel for anyone and it is definately not worth over $100 dollars. I have stayed in better for $60 dollars. Absolutely horrible experience.

disappointing for a choice hotel

Pros: Location
Cons: Most everything
Location: It's a terrific place for restaurants and historical sites
It's difficult to overcome the construction site next door and the hotel cannot be faulted for that. However, the hotel was advertised as having full breakfast. That was not the case. Continental breakfast at best.

Close to the interstate-clean

Pros: Clean Breakfast room clean and food very acceptable Personnel polite and helpful
Cons: the building
Location: Handy to interstate, shopping and eating establishments
Days Inn This was an older motel. It was clean and had nice personnel but the condition of the shower was poor to say the least. But the main complaint was the construction on 3 sides of the motel. It was right next to the parking lot on one side and on the parking lot on the other side. The trucks started up at 6am, warming up and gunning the engines. They left and came back by 6:30am and all the workers were there working. The breakfast was nice. I hope the construction is replacing the current motel.

Clueless staff

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Service to patrons
Location: UVa
I booked a handicapped accessible room. It was anything but. No grab bars around toilet or in shower. No room to maneuver scooter in room. No electric outlets near bed for charging things or using bi pap machine. Surly staff that insisted the room was accessible. Low toilet. Very high bed.

Needs Updating

The Days Inn needs to be updated. The rooms were adequate but the hotel looks rundown and dingy. The hotel staff was very friendly and even let us check in before our rooms were ready so that we were able to go to our rooms later in the day after visiting with family without having to check in at the office. The tub was completely clogged so one of us had to shower in the others bath water. This makes me think that the maid service did not clean the tub or they would have noticed this. The sink was very slow to drain and dirt would rise up from the drain when in use. This was reported to the front desk at check out. The complimentary breakfast is your standard non-kitchen breakfast with microwaved eggs and sausage gravy. This was adequate for a one night stay for the price, but I would stay somewhere else for a longer stay.

It's all relative

Pros: Free Internet
For the price, it was excellent. Clean, quiet, comfortable bed, good water pressure. It was by no means luxurious, but such was not expected.

Very poor experience

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast, facility past its time.
My understanding is that they are planning on tearing this hotel down, I would have to agree with that plan. Overall facility in very poor shape, pool closed and disgusting. Many of the room are no longer habitable, (even by their standards) and the food service area smells and I cannot imagine taking the risk to eating anything they would put out.

Not all it claims to be

Pros: none
Cons: Noisy
Where do I start....oh why not with one of the first things you see, the pool. The pool is closed and not even in use. Its full of dirt leaves, mud and a cover placed over some of it. There is no restaurant in the hotel like it claims, just an empty dining room. One half of the building is full of mexicans who seem to live there and have parties on the porch every night. And it took three rooms before I could get a room with a/c and once there the free internet was about as slow as dial up so I had to go to a coffee shop to finish up on work.
