Days Inn was filthy. Staff was rude and very disrespectful. Bed skirt had squished bug, feces or some type of nastiness. Big whole in bathroom where vent should have been. Walls were stained from something brown dripping. Staff said they knew of room condition and still put my family in room. My family went to another nice hotel.

I want to take this opportunity to apologize for the poor service you received during your stay .Your experience with our Days Inn was not the quality of service that we have promised to provide to our guests. There is no excuse that our staff did not fulfill that promise in your case. It is unfortunate I handled the situation in a way that was not pleasing to you. Please accept my apologies.

Our third staying at this Days Inn while visiting my daughter in Waterloo. Like the location. It's safe. Rooms are always clean. Spend most of the day out doing things but always feel welcome when coming back in at night. Employees are friendly and go out of their way to make our accommodations great. Will likely be back here again next visit!
