Reviewed 11 August 2011

we checked into our room after an exhausting day of driving. We had stayed there on the way and didn't find it too awful, so opted to try again as it's 'pet friendly' and was nearly vacant. That should have been a clue.
The room smelled awful and there was a beeping noise coming from somewhere. We checked the smoke detector thinking maybe the battery was dying, but there was NO battery in it. I tried to call the desk but the phone didn't work. I used my partners cell phone but nobody answered the phone. He finally drove down to the office and got us changed to a new room that smelled better, at least..
In 6 years my dog has never had a flea. We came home with fleas and foot fungus. The rooms may be relatively unexpensive with AARP but the flea treatment and medication for foot was NOT.
Never again.

We made a reservation for a busy college parent's weekend many months in advance. We were quoted the base rate. When we called to confirm, they were planning on charging us over $120 more because all rooms in Lexington were sold out. They don't use email so you have no way to prove your quoted rate. They were also very unprofessional!

Relatively unfriendly front desk clerk (one of the two) who confronted and challenged me as to why I happen to reserve a handicapped room and I was abruptly asked who booked this room to my surprise. I happen to have had no idea that the room booked was this type and was an online booking.
This was a premium priced MOTEL at total of near $100 for the night even with online discount due to the relatively rural location with limited competition.
Issues:
Dead cricket on the bathroom floor
T V did not work horizontal hold gone and would not turn off w remote had to unplug it
Coffee pot was still had coffee in it from the prior occupants
Microwave did not work and literally smelled of smoke when turned on
Other portions of the room two star at best worn wallpaper grout up on the bathroom etc etc.....
When mentioned all of these things to the manager at checkout (too late and tired to move rooms after a 10 hour drive) he offered no apology, no regrets and stated that he would simply mention these complaints to maintenance staff....
a lesson to be learned in customer service and satisfaction for sure.
Would never consider this particular Days Inn as I was a Days "In-Mate" for the night" if all of you know what I mean.
Good Travels

Arrived on a busy Friday night. No vacancy, so glad I had booked ahead. Room was basic, as expected. Quiet, except for door slammed at next room. But in the a.m. there was no hot water, about 7:30.

There were nice touches - the management did what I could with what it had. But when the toilet is not firmly attached to the floor and flops around as one rises, there is a way to go. Light bulbs were of the dim variety, and lighting around the mirror was inadequate.

When I checked out, I asked about the water. I was told it was out for the whole building, with a shrug. Was that the case? or were there so many guests that it ran out?

We enjoy staying in this quiet little motel. It is close to our son at VMI but not in the middle of all the tourism of the town.Quiet, clean, not fancy and with a wonderful manager and staff.

The price and location of this hotel were good. The desk clerk was nice in helping us find the hotel. Problems began when the light in the sink area did not work (it was completely dark with the bathroom door closed) and the cold water in the shower shut off when you turned the sink on in the additional sink area. This was a problem with 3 girls in the room, we had to multi task! Somehow this became our fault, we were doing something wrong. And then the manager suggested that we brush our teeth with scalding hot water. They were very nice until there was a problem. Won't be staying here again.
