“Updated and Comfortable - Again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

We have stayed at this Days Inn several times but this was the best of all. They have updated the rooms and have new beds and bedding that are soooo comfortable. The new paint added a bright and clean look to our rooms. The first two nights it was just me and my husband so we had a single room with a king bed. We picked up our two granddaughters on the third day and moved into one of their double rooms. That worked out great because the two girls slept in the extra room and had a place to put all their stuff. Their parents came later and we moved back to the single room and they stay in the double with the girls. In all we stayed 11 nights and the owners, Annie and her husband are great. This lady went out of her way to talk to the girls and make sure they knew they could come visit or get snacks in the office any time.
Not to talk about this location would leave out the best part. It's in walking or trolly distance from everywhere. You can be at the harbor, the beach, Sterns Wharf, or the zoo in minutes. Also there are lots of restaurants close and we especially love the Brew House - 2 blocks over and three blocks down. I want you to like it like we do but not so much that it's took booked up for us. Maybe see you next trip.

We were not sure if we wanted to go, since the somewhat low reviews on tripadvisor. Moreover my wife is a cleanfreak so it's even harden to find a decent room for a good price. So we didn't book in advance and just 'bumped' in and see what we came across.

After inspection we were susprised. It was a really clean and nice bedroom and the shower is allright too. (no shower curtains thank god!)

Wifi is free and fast however breakfast could be better, however if you look at the price you pay for the accomodation, compared to other motels, it's a really good value for money.

I don't know if there was a management switch earlier the year, but the motel is run by a lovely eldery couple making things work.

We've been here twice for 4 nights now and we would come back again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

I was worried when we pulled up as it looked old and dated. However, the inside was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities you need. The check in man was so lovely and gave us heaps of information. In comparison to other accommodations in the area this was great value. We had a very quiet night in a comfy bed. We didn't eat the free breakfast (had already planned to go to ihop) but it had enough for a basic breakfast, a huge range of packaged pastries, breakfast bars, juices etc. it was a 10 minute walk to the pier (which happened to be disappointing). From there it was another 15 minute walk to downtown. A tip is there is a bus that runs between the pier and downtown for 50 cents.
