Was using a free night stay and arrived at the Days Inn in Faribault, MN a little before 11 pm. I had my 2 small children with me as well. The front door had no lock and the front desk was unattended. There was a phone setting on the front desk that stated the attendant was away from the desk and to pick up the receiver to get ahold of the attendant. I tried 2 times with that phone and received no answer. I could hear the phone ringing behind the desk. I called the Days Inn reservation number to see if they could help me as it had been about 15 minutes since I had arrived. I listened to the phone ring for 7 straight minutes and they tried to reach the attendant. The representative told me that there was nothing that she could do to help me and that I should just wait in the lobby. As it had now been about 25 minutes since I had arrived, I called the nonemergency number for the police as it was a little concerning that there was no one there for such a long period of time. The police called the number at least 2 times before the attendant finally answered the phone. It had now been about 35 minutes since my arrival. The attendant had appeared to have been sleeping and stated that the phone must not have been working. The doors to the building are not secure and there is no guarantee that the attendant will be available at the front desk. If it was not for the fact that I would have lost my free night and had to have taken my 2 small children back outside with temperatures in the single digits, I would have found a new hotel.
