“Great Place, but Housekeeping was rude”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

This could be a great place to stay if they fired their current housekeeping company. At breakfast, several of the workers were having loud discussions in Spanish just feet from the dining area. One lady came out & took my bagel out of the toaster & went away with it. When I complained, the lady stood there & lied, when several other guests saw her do it. The housekeeping manager cut me off in the hallway when going into a room, & then did it again when entering the elevator. I also complained about a loud & obnoxious dog barking next to my room -> the desk clerk told me it belonged to the owners & they leave it in any available room when they come to work... very humane.

The Days Inn was comfortable and quiet. The woman at the front desk was cheerful and helpful. We would go back.

Very hard to find hotel- service road off a service road. Rooms were large, but average in condition. Bed was very comfortable. We just came off a cruise so size of room was more than welcome. Staff was very helpful and helped us plan activities for the next day before we flew home. Breakfast was a little better than average for free continental. A lot of negative reviews, but we had no problems.

Spent 15 minutes filling in one of those emailed 'Days Inn Mount Vernon-Casino Area Survey Invitation' but know nothing will come of it so thought I'd write on here as I read reviews before booking a place also ;-) My wife and I stayed just the one night for approx $85. We booked online from a coffee shop just 1 hour before checking in. The 'motel' photographs have been mentioned in previous posts and they really do not represent what the place is like at the present (June 2011)although that does seem like a fairly regular trick by the hotel owners. I laughed when I saw the pool.

I have to say the staff were really friendly, but there was nothing they could do about the deteriorating building they were working in. It's way past it's life span as a chain named motel, the room smelt of really cheap floor cleaner, the walls were super thin and so easy to listen to next doors TV or conversations and cerainly wouldn't walk around on the carpet with bare feet as everything was so old. If you've been driving for 10 hours straight and are so tired that you would sleep pretty much anywhere and on anything then this will work for you. If your looking for a bit of regular comfort and something that's fairly modern then give it a miss. It really is pretty gross.

Despite the previous bad reviews, we decided to try this property for an overnight stay on the way to Seattle. We had a pleasant stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The room, including bathroom, were clean and the beds were comfortable. The make-your-own waffles at breakfast was a nice treat. The only complaint we have is that the Wi-Fi in the room didn't work, so we had to go to the lobby for a better signal.

We stayed one night in June at this Days Inn. The room we had stank of cigarettes and they do still allow smoking in this hotel. The WiFi was completely non existent in the rooms but worked if you went to the lobby. The complimentary breakfast was very basic and all the cups, bowls, etc were styrofoam. The rooms are very dated as well and look like it.
