As always very nice, clean comfortable stay. Very good value for money. Cant fault it. General manager Danielle was very nice and helpful. If ever in the area again will definitely stay again.

This is more a motel than a hotel it is purley for sleeping in.
Having said that what a wonderful room it was large and spotless especially the bathroom.
There was food available a short distance away where you could have a burger or a breakfast and it was open 24 hours. Staff were friendly and very helpful. It was ideal for a day trip to Chester we used the park and ride service which was excellent. We got all this for Ten pounds a night with vouchers from a morning paper cracking value.
We booked a family room for 1 night during the February half-term break which was £50. The room was clean and comfortable, bath had hot running water and bathroom well equipped with clean towels, shampoo/body wash and soap. TV was easy to use, and staff were very friendly towards my autistic son. Excellent location - we had visited Chester Zoo that day and were visiting Blue Planet Aquarium the next day, and for those it was absolutely ideal.
Where I have paid £50 for overnight accommodation before breakfast was included, it was not here though you could get a £10 voucher for the Roadchef restaurant for £7.50 so a slight discount - if you want this, however, buy in the evening, as reception is only manned between 3pm and 7am. Many ground floor rooms overlook the Roadchef car park - we felt like we had to shut the curtains even before it went dark for privacy. Amount of tea and coffee left in room was also on the bare minimum side - you can ask for more but again reception is not always manned. Minor niggles really for a £50 room. We are Chester Zoo members, and would probably use again when visiting the zoo.
We found the food we had from the associated Roadchef (choice of basic family restaurant, McDonalds and Costa) perfectly fine and again the staff in there were friendly to my son and very helpful in catering for our needs. However choice for vegetarians abysmal, so if you're travelling with a vegetarian you may want to case out other local eating venues!
Booked two nights, 20-22nd Jan 2012, with news paper vouchers at £10 a night.. Rooms clean, beds comfy, staff friendly although the reception is only manned in the evenings. Ideal base to explore Chester area.
Only criticism was that there was not a lot of tea bags and sugar left in room. Really surprised that you don't notice the traffic in the bedrooms.
We had an excellent visit and would highly recommended staying here.
Booked the Days Inn @ Chester East using the £10 per night vouchers from a newspaper promotion. Booked Saturday and Sunday evenings with the intention of spending Sunday in Liverpool and Monday in Chester. I had asked for a top floor quiet room and so was a little disappointed when we were allocated room 39 which although on the top floor was opposite the door that everyone would use to access the top floor and which was over the main entrance overlooking the car park to the main motorway services area. The location was however no problem at all. The double-glazing is fantastic so no noise from the service area. The comings and goings of other guests was also no problem at all. The room was very big and warm with 2 king size beds. We ate out at the Helsby Arms just down the road both evenings and would recommend as the service was very good and for January they had a number of meals at 1/2 price. On our return from dinner on the Saturday evening the reception was closed but there was a notice saying to ring the bell for service. A bloke had come in wanting to book a room and I wanted to ask for some extra tea and milk so we rung the bell a couple of times but no-one came. I went up to the room without any milk and the gentleman wanting to book a room left so I don't know where the receptionist was. When we got back to the room, there was a lot of noise until about 11 o'clock from what we thought was the room next door. We could hear loud talking so had to turn up the tv. When we turned the tv off it went very quiet next door so we were rather relieved as we thought we wouldn't be able to get to sleep. The strange thing was that next morning when we looked at the room next to us it wasn't a guest room at all but a storage cupboard or staff room, so I really don't know whether it was guests talking so loudly all evening or the staff! Anyway we had a good nights sleep and the next day caught the ferry from Woodside over to Liverpool. The parking at Woodside costs £1 per hour so I would suggest using the terminal at Seacombe where the parking is free. When we got back to the Days Inn on on the Sunday evening there was a really helpful lady on reception and she was able to provide extra tea and milk. Sunday night was perfect - no noise at all. Reception also offer a £10 voucher that you can use at the motorway services for £7.50 so this would be worth purchasing if you are looking to purchase food from there. The Days Inn also offers free wifi by registering with walkinwifi. I registered but wasn't able to connect for some reason so gave up and used by internet dongle. Overall this is a great location for visiting Liverpool and Chester and we would definately use the Days Inn again.
receptionist friendly and efficent room 18 avoid next to boiler room boiler fired up approx every 15 mins all night could not complain to a receptionist as they dont start until 3pm could not wait until somebody appeard from the roadchef building to complain will not be back
