When I was booked at the Days Inn I didn't expect much. When I arrived at the grim exterior and rough location I was even less impressed. Everything went uphill from there.
Check in was fast, efficient, no fuss. Took me 5 minutes max. Joseph at the reception counter was smiling, courtious and very helpful with maps and advice. Looking around I immediately noticed that the reception areas were not just clean but gleeming clean. Polished floors, not a magazine out of place, nothing.
My room was spotlessly clean, bathrooms very clean and new. Beds crisp and neet. When I shut the door I could hear the thud of a well sound proofed room. It was quiet and I slept well. Whom ever does the maintenance deserves a raise.
Next morning I went down for the "Continental Breakfast" expecting a stale danish and watery coffee. Nope! They had everything, cerial, yougert, fruit, hot waffles, excellent coffee. All overseen by Janet who ensured their was enough for everyone, happy to help, get you butter, anything. WOW! She made sure every table was spotless, for the next guest, with a paper.
Then I had a problem getting my computer's wi-fi to match up to the hotel's. I called the front desk and they sent up a tech support person, Sylvia, within 5 minutes. She whipped my computer in shape in under 10 minutes. Again with a smile and courtesy.
I didn't get to use the pool or hot tub but I went down just to see if it was as clean as the rest of the hotel. It was.
While waiting for my ride to the airport, I noticed that any garbage left by guests in the waiting area, disappeared withing 1/2 hour. I was so impressed with the staff.
The only fly-in-the ointment was the $6.10 charge for making a toll free call from my room. Mickey Mouse gouging!
But asside from that, I was happily suprised by the service, staff, and cleanliness. Management and staff take a bow. You were impressive.
