“Room dangerous”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Employees were courteous enough. The room was in danger of electrical fire. All sockets in wall to plug in necessities were falling out of wall. The electrical boxes literally would fall out of the
wall if you tried to use them. Bed clothing old and wore out. This was one unbelievable event
for a Days Inn.

The hotel was very clean and well located. The staff was friendly, and even when there was a mix up with the booking company, the hotel helped me sort things out. I would definitely stay at days inn Helen again.

Reviewed 16 October 2013

We were here thankfully only one night! Room stank with a musty, moldy smell. Burns in floor and bedspread larger than a quarter. Mold around base of toilet and bathtub was nasty. The staff was nice(or at least the only guy we saw) I can not believe this hotel actually is allowed to have the Days Inn name. The amount we paid was outrageous for the accommodations provided. We were here with 5 other couples and no on had a decent room. All of the other couples had complaints of smelly rooms, bugs, dirty, and overall unacceptable!

WoW this place is one of the worst keep hotels I have ever stayed in and I travel for a living this owner should be banned from operating a business ROACHES IN OUR ROOM the couch was broken on one end and dirty bathroom as well with hair on the floors Mgnt was very nice think his name was Marty felt sorry for him he is only the fall guy for this piece of crap or an owner. I don't normally post about small issues I had 5 other couples stay there.

Room Tip: Best Western a friend stayed there it was much cleaner and newer
