Days Inn Leicester Forest East M1
Ranked #18 of 41 Hotels in Leicester
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Needed somewhere to stay overnight after seeing Bruce Springsteen in Coventry. Left it late to book somewhere and this was the nearest budget hotel I could find, but I'm glad I did.
Manned for 24 hours, so we booked in well after midnight with no problems whatsoever.
The room was spotless and comfortable.
My only very minor gripe would be that it was a humid night and the air conditioning wasn't upto much and the window didn't open far enough.
Being in a motorway service station meant there was food on tap all night although the fast food outlets were closed overnight.
Staff friendly and informative when we left.
I'd definitely recommend it for an overnight stay

Room Tip: We had a room that backed onto the lorry park, but hardly heard them all night.

We stayed here just for a bed(s) as we were going to Alton Towers the next day and worked out pretty cheap versus other closer hotels. It was about 40 minutes away from the destination, most of the drive from the hotel to the park was a clear route.

We had booked a double with a sofa bed room but upon arrival we were given a room with two double beds, great free upgrade! Plenty of parking, the reception service was very impressive. The room was of a good size considering the brand and price paid. Location is handy for the service station within less of a minute walk.

As the park didnt open until 10 am we woke up about 8 and didnt leave the hotel until just after nine. Shower had a good pressure and heat. If I ever do a similar trip i would definately consider this hotel again.

visited the hotel evening time on 09/06/13 as family member was staying there for a number of nights. very reasonable rates through late rooms, ample parking, reception staff were excellent, very friendly, helpful and efficent. The room was very clean and of a decent size with nice bathroom.feedback from family member was that a good nights sleep was had on a comfortable bed and it was quiet even though next to the M1 and staff were welcoming every night upon return to the hotel. Well worth consideration if require just a room for the night.

Room Tip: If you need an iron and ironing board ask at reception and one will be provided

Was really surprised with this hotel. Just booked it as i was visiting friends in the area. Ok, so my reservation wasn't in the system but the receptionist sorted this out asap, all they needed was my email confirmation to prove i had booked it. Friendly staff, Clean rooms, close to the centre of Leicester. Fab price too! :)

Room Tip: A room away from the truck park as it can be a tad noisy

This was a last minute booking the day before arrival and cost 29.95 GBP. Absolutely fantastic price. Arrived at staff handover time (late at night) so waited a couple of minutes for assistance.

Room was very clean. Easy to park and register car on the touch screen system. Looked like brand new towels and very happy to use this hotel again. I had stayed here a number of years ago and wasn't impressed, they certainly have improved.

Room Tip: Ask to stay away from motorway side if possible.

Excellent 2 night family room booked for £50 with offer code '24fifty' - most definitely the best price bargain around with FREE car parking on site and Waitrose store as well as Starbucks next door.
Good quiet nights sleep and unbeatable for the price!
