The hotel was average but the help was professional and courteous. Travelocity on the other hand booked me a room that said it was smoking and cost me extra money. However, when I arrived I was informed there were no smoking rooms in the entire hotel and still was made to pay the extra cost instead of the cheaper non-smoking room rate. I don't care if I can smoke or not, but I do care about the false advertising and the money that it cost me.

Less Than Stellar

Our experience at this Days Inn was less than we expected. It was dated, had a noticeable odor, and they lacked double non-smoking rooms. We requested a roll-away bed no less than four times but still ended up sleeping 4 people in one bed for part of our stay. The breakfast is a typical low-end continental with a waffle machine, some juice, a couple of cereals, and a few other things. It was free and worth every penny. There were 4 small cafe-sized tables to accommodate the entire hotel. The pool is located in the hotel next door and adequate. If you're looking for an inexpensive place to catch some sleep and that's the extent of your expectation, this facility will meet your needs. If you are after a modern hotel with staff that is focused on meeting your needs, spend a few more bucks and look elsewhere.
