Wait for the Fixes
Posted Jan 18, 2017
I had high hopes for my stay. I knew that Days Inn had taken over from the chain Red Roof Inn. It shows. We started out with our first room having a door we were unable to open. The top lock had swung shut, and we were unable to get in. We were reassigned a second room.
When we got to the second room, the refrigerator didn't work. Thinking it just needed to be plugged in and turned on, I did so. I plugged it in thinking by the end of the first day of stay, it would be working. It wasn't. So, lots of the items we brought stayed in our cooler.
So then, we get to the bath/shower problems. The first night, my roommate had trouble getting the hot water to work. We thought it had run out. OK, older hotel. But the second night, the water faucet was stuck and wouldn't move to the hot water position. It had worked the night before. Figured that this was another thing that needed to be fixed. But got a cold bath that night in spite of the high price tag for the room. And to note, the rat by the pool at night could be explained by the surrounding fields.
Granted, this was the weekend that was the big SCU graduation. All the other hotels were booked up. And the staff were pretty nice about everything. We did get a discount per night. And the bed was pretty comfortable. At least I got a good night's sleep.
So, my advice, is maybe wait a bit for the new management to find the different fixes that need taken care of. It might be in better shape in 6 months time.
