Yeah, but No
Posted Mar 20, 2016
We needed to make a two night visit to Athens. Most hotels were booked for one night or the other. Not wanting to change hotels in the middle of our stay we settled on Days Inn. Being Days Inn, I didn't expect frills.
Arrived to check in and staff was cold. We got a nonsmoking room but unfortunately pot smokers don't adhear to the nonsmoking request. We were confronted with heavy marijuana smoke residue upon entering the room - so much so we left the door open and turned the AC wide open to let it air out.
Outside the smell the room was fine. Basic but fine. Breakfast was minimal but I really didn't expect a breakfast at this level hotel so that was a plus. The hotel also had a pool, which is another plus.
The downside (if you can get past being blasted in the face with pot smoke upon initially entering the room) was you actually had to go to the front desk to check out- I prefer to just calling to checkout. Staff was more pleasant on the way out though. However, apparently there was some huge bust the morning we checked out. Cops swarming, people arrested, multiple cop cars in the parking lot. It was time to go.
Maybe it's not so much the hotel as it is the clientele but we won't be back.
