Our spur-of-the-moment, lack-of-forethought plans put us in the Chicago area on a weekend with no viable vacancies. We put in a quick call to TripRewards, and they booked us at this Day's Inn.
Now, if you've stayed in Day's Inn properties, you've probably realized there is no consistency in the brand. Some I've stayed in are excellent and incredible bargains.
And then there are these kind of Day's Inns. Dumps. Places you wouldn't be surprised to find they have hourly rates.
The nearly-catatonic front-desk carbon-unit put us in a miserable room without windows. People, you just read that right. No. Windows. They were boarded up.
But whatever, it wasn't like we were entertaining guests -- just get a nap, a shower and out the door. (Poor locks on that, too, by the way).
Well, I guess you could say we were glad that wasn't glass separating us from the outside world while a noisey bunch of drunken teenagers partied in the parking lot and all surrounding areas of the motel's cement surfaces.
The room was a dump. They rack or whatever you call it (where you'd hang your clothes, but not a closet) had been ripped from the wall and hammered into a new spot. The bed was hard and older than the dirt that surrounded it. The fixtures didn't match. Cigarette burn in the sheet. Petty larceny (sunglasses) by the housekeeping staff. You get the point.
Look. If I was CEO or whatever of Day's Inn -- or was an independent owner operating under the brand -- I'd be genuinely committed to getting properties like this Naperville motel out of the chain.
I won't stay in this Day's Inn. You ought not either.
