This hotel is quite minimal, and might even really better be called a motel. We chose Days Inn because we'd had excellent experience with the Victorville and the San Diego ones in the past. Compared to those, this Days Inn is not really on a par with them, but it is priced right for what you get. Now, this review is colored by our usual habit of staying at high-end resorts through our vacation time share club, and it has spoiled us, I admit it.
The bed was okay, the pillows were quite lumpy, and the bathroom had an unfinished paint job (the walls had been painted and then someone had roller-coated the trim, but hadn't wiped the trim paint where they missed off the walls). The bathroom was very small indeed, with a regular, residential type bathtub (the other Days Inns we have stayed at had whirlpool baths), but there was a nice little makeup and sink area just outside it. The TV was an old school CRT one, not too large, but it was okay for the size of the room.
The walls were quite thin, and the room we stayed in had a door which apparently opened into the room next door (it was locked), making the two into a suite. There was an elephant in the room above us, and every time he moved, it was literally as if he was stomping on the floor as hard as possible. I thought about going up there and saying, "Dude, really?" but I didn't do it. Still, they quieted down at a reasonable hour and we had no trouble sleeping there.
All in all, the room was clean - spotless, even - and the front desk manager was very accommodating and friendly. They provided a nice continental breakfast and the room it was served in actually had tables and chairs at which to eat it. Also, they have a deal with the BBQ restaurant next door - 20% off when we were there for guests of the Days Inn. I'll write a separate review of the restaurant (Leo's, I think it's called), but that was a great deal. This hotel is definitely a great value at the price they charge, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice weekend getaway or a visit to Hearst Castle (that's what we were there for).
