3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The front desk staff was very helpful. However, the maid forgot to come by one of the 4 days I was there so I had to come down and get my own towels. The breakfast was awful consisting of bread to make toast, oatmeal, orange drink and yogurts and lousy coffee. Lid to the trash was in the sink and the trash bag was on the floor. The room looked like it had been decorated decades ago. It was clean enough but the bathroom needed painting and the base of the toilet leaked slightly. The bed was average. The room was ok for 2 but that's about all that would fit comfortably. There is no closet. Many of the lights and the clock were unplugged upon my arrival. Sound from the hallway came through as if my door was open.

We were here for an ISU Orientation. This "hotel" offered no greetings, not enough towels, no iron or board in the room and the rooms are small, musty and in need of a deep cleaning. Breakfast was also cold and disappointing. Whatever you pay for this room, it is too much.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

We were staying for 2 nights, and we had bought a room on the second floor with two queen beds. When we got there we found that the parking lot was very narrow and, there was no elevator. We had to carry our bags up the stairs. When we got into our room we found that we had two double beds instead of queens. We unpacked our drinks, but found that the refrigerator did not work. We went out for the day. Then we came back to sleep. We turned on the air conditioner and it was very loud. We called the guy working at the front desk, but he couldn't fix it. So, the air conditioner would turn on and off all through the night. When we woke up to shower there was not enough pressure, and the towels were very small. We would have checked out, but we knew we wouldn't get a refund. And it cost $120 each night! We went down to the breakfast area that was very small, so we just decided to go out to eat. When we got back there was an odor in the room that smelled like sewer. We called the guy at the front desk. He brought up air freshener. He sprayed so much that we could hardly breathe, but at least it smelled better. When we woke up in the morning it smelled again, but we were leaving. Overall, this was a horrible experience. This Days Inn is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. It is old and smelly and small. Don't stay here!
