“Nothing particularly wrong, nothing particularly right”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

What does one expect from a Days Inn? They are an economy hotel...and they typically don't make any apologies for it. The room was clean and beds were relatively comfortable if you prefer them on the firm side. The breakfast was OK and the WiFi was fast and reliable. One little complaint...the hotel can be difficult to get to if you're not paying attention. Keep your eyes open!

I was a little worried when I first booked this hotel. We got a really good price, so it was hard to pass up. When we got to Independence, we saw the hotel from I70, but trying to actually get to the parking lot was a little confusing. From the outside, the hotel is nothing to write home about. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room and found that it was newly renovated. The decoration was very nice. We loved the 32 ince LCD TV. The bed was very comfy (I prefer a firm mattress, and that's what it was). The room did not smell like smoke which is good because most rooms do even though they are supposed to be non-smoking. We were on the ground floor, so we were afraid that headlights from cars pulling in would bother us, but the curtains blocked out all light. It was nice, especially since we wanted to sleep in! The room was very clean. I would suggest that they work on updating the bathroom, but it wasn't anything that made me turn my nose up. The toilet was not the greatest when it came to flushing, so their plumbing might have an issue.

The continental breakfast was quite good! They had belgian waffles, biscuits and gravy, sausage, eggs, and different types of bread and cereal. For a free meal, I was not complaining!

We kept the do not disturb sign in our lock, and we weren't disturbed once.

This hotel is in a great location, and for the brice, it cannot be beat! We will be staying here again!

we were on a budget trip this time so we found this little place with good reviews. We rolled up to the hotel and the kids were worried because the ABVI in front of the this hotel had some shady looking folks out front. our hotel was mostly full of highway and construction workers passing through and kids on a wrestling trip.
We got checked in and went to our room with fairly low expectations. The room, however, was very clean and well decorated. beds were comfy, breakfast was good... service was ok, we had no issues. all in all I would recommend it for the budget traveler!

Nice motel, a bit challenging to find the actual entryway to the property. Great beds, good price. Hot breakfast - eggs, sausage and biscuits and gravy as well as continental items.
