I'm normally on top of things. This time, I'm let someone else pick. And they did NOT do their hw. This place is awful! The one bright side is that, the outside of the place looks clean or newly painted/landscaped. That's it.
Now, this is not a vacation destination by any means. We booked to be near the Tropicana Dome for an event in which our son was performing. We walked to our room where we saw people just hanging out all over the place... I mean, hanging out, drinking, and smoking cigarettes directly in front of our door! This was not the fun kind of hanging out. It was the scary kind. It felt like more like a long-term low-rent motel / hangout. Looks like some people might actually live here. Somewhere a loud radio is playing. When we called the office and told them we just checked in and are disturbed by the noise, they'd didn't even know what room number we were calling from. Said they'd walk around and check it out. Not!
The room was smelly and dank. There were lots of in-room noises - toilet, creaking, A/C. So unhappy here.
The people who work there are careless. When my husband went in to check-in, they were cooking a curry dish for dinner in their apartment which connects to the front office. They were unresponsive to our needs and lax. For some reason, they start breakfast at 7 am, which is later than any other place I've been to. The breakfast is a joke. Just some sad-looking bagels. And they won't let you take any of the food outside of the office!! Whaaat? We had to run and eat to make it to our destination on time. Being that they open late for breakfast, we needed to go. Nope! They were rude about it. They wanted us to stand there and eat our bagels in the office or leave them. We had already packed them up to go and had to put them back. Someone else ate our sad, little bagels.
We had a two night non-refundable for $150. That's a total rip-off for this place!! (Again, not on my watch.). After the first night, I went to the front and told them that I was checking out because we are dissatisfied. He shrugged and told me that they charged me the full amount. That was Joseph. He didn't even bother to ask what the problems were or try to fix them. NO ONE CARES!!! Not even Days Inn customer service!
The other excellent reviews here are very hard to believe. So don't.
