“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We booked room for our small trip but the hotel was full house because of graduation in Quinnipiac University. We loved this charming place. The bed was much more clean and comfortable; coffee maker worked and served hot coffee; bathroom was clean 2 bars of soap, clean towels, shampoo and conditioner was provided. So all the basic needs were met. Excellent weekend breakfast including more than enough items. This place looks old from outside but room was big and very clean. When we arrived at hotel other four customers arrived at same time so I thought my turn will come for check in after half hour that usually happen in other hotel but it takes only five minutes so that was unexpected. The ever smiling tiny Indian girl working at the desk was very friendly and helpful. She suggest me pretty good information for travelling. Nearest beautiful visit points are sleeping Giant Park and back walking trail. So, I would recommend this place to stay with affordable price.

My husband accidentally clicked the link to reserve a room at this hotel. We had been looking at a number of them in the area for our daughter's graduation night from Quinnipiac University. After reading the poor reviews and talking to our daughter who informed us it was a place to stay away from we had decided on a place in another town. My husband thought he was on the other site when he filled in the info and didn't realize his error until the confirmation email came a minute later. Right then he called to cancel and they refused. This was a month before the intended night's stay. It took him almost 3 hours on the phone talking to numerous people and going up he chain before he could finally cancel. It was ridiculous! In the future we will avoid Days Inn and hotel.com. You should be able to cancel a reservation right after making it when it's for a date a month ahead. It's not like we were cancelling last minute or they had missed out on another reservation in the meantime.

I booked this hotel because the pictures they showed showed a nice, renovated property, with close proximity to the venue I was going to be at. Well, when I got there, it was a dump! Even my two kids could't believe how bad it was. The bathroom was disgusting - there was black gunk on the outside of the tub - I was afraid to open the curtain to see what it looked like on the inside. The dust and grime in the bedroom was just as bad. The lights by the bed didn't work, the tv was so old, only one light on the desk worked and the floor in the bathroom had hair on it. Needless to say, I skipped the shower. One plus - the beds weren't bad and the sheets were clean and crisp. I'm glad I didn't have to pay full price because even at the price I paid, I paid too much. Luckily it was close to the Toyota Oakdale Theater. The help was nice, but it doesn't make up for the shambles the property is.
