“More than just Southern Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

We had stayed here before during a motorcycle tour five years earlier and were very happy and as creatures of habit during our extended Memorial Day vacation, we decided at the last minute to change from a hotel in Newport, TN to the Days Inn soooo, at 7:30 AM on the Wednesday before Memorial Day we called the front desk and requested an early check in... No Problem!! We got there at 9AM, they gave us coffee and a warm welcome. We trailered our HD's and needed special parking... No Problem!! They literally helped us park the rig outside our room and told us to park our bikes under the awning outside the office anytime. The staff is OUTSTANDING, breakfast is filling and the room was clean with an ice cold fridge, micro, new and comfy mattress (so important right); the balcony overlooking the river is private and super relaxing plus its so nice to get a good fresh cross breeze through the room too.

Housekeeping staff was friendly and kind. Facility was in poor condition, with scuffs on the walls, tears in the carpet and dirty lobby restrooms. Water temperature was scalding or cold. Vending machines inconvenient: food on one level, drinks on another level. Breakfast was wonderful if you want 200 carbs - nothing fresh or healthy on the breakfast menu. Coffee was good, though. We met with relatives and were embarrassed about the conditions. Although we have stayed there for years we will probably move to the Comfort Inn next trip.

I read reviews for this hotel before I booked it and was a little worried. My husband and I decided that since we were only spending a minimal amount of time in it, it couldn't be that bad...and it wasn't. The bed was comfortable, the sheets and towels were clean and the room was clean and straightened. Yes, it looks like it hasn't been updated since the 80's...the furniture was old and tore, the curtains were hideous and the bathroom was tiny...you get what you pay for. It wasn't as close to all the good stuff in downtown Gburg as I would have wanted but we didn't know where everything was since it was our first time there in forever...at least a 10 min walk from everything...not too bad. The breakfast suited us...cereal, oatmeal, muffins and homemade waffles. The staff were nice, the bathroom was heated, the road noise was NOT bad, the river drowned anything out...parking was tight but manageable. Not complaints other than I'll stay closer to town next time!
