Husband and I were visiting friends in the area and just needed a place to crash that wasn't too expensive. The room was $70 for two double beds on Saturday night of boat race weekend.
Check-in was fast and easy, however the clerk didn't exactly seem thrilled to be working. The room (213) was cool when we entered, and the temperature was easy to control via the console under the window. The carpet was clean and didn't have any staining or sticky spots as other reviewers had mentioned. The room included a microwave and decently sized fridge, in which we were able to put the fruit we bought from a nearby stand.
The bathroom was impeccably clean and smelled fresh. The shower curtain was on a curved rod and shower head was high enough that my husband didn't complain about showering. The towels were standard for quality of motel we were at; somewhat scratchy and stiff. We brought our own shampoo and lotion so we didn't try the bottles provided. The water was hot, even close to check-out time.
We thought it was strange that a hotel would have double beds instead of queens, so we booked the room with two. The beds were the only bad part of our stay. They were very hard and made it harder than normal to fall asleep. Sheets were standard motel quality and smelled fresh. The pillows were nice and fluffy.
We were hoping to use the pool before check-out on Sunday, but unfortunately it doesn't open until 10. There was complimentary continental breakfast offering cereals, pastries, juices and coffee. The pastries were fresh, but the coffee was sub-par (it tasted like instant). Check-out was easy and only took a minute.
All in all it was a great stay and we wouldn't hesitate to book the Days Inn again. No, this isn't the Hampton Inn, but you shouldn't be expecting a four-star hotel at a one-star price. If you're looking for a decent place to sleep and shower then this motel will be more than adequate.
