Everything! Room smelled of mildew and smoke. Rug felt awful under my feet. Doors were opening and shutting all night long. I think a lot more was going on beside people staying overnight on a trip. I would never stay there again and I suggest people read posts about this particular Days Inn. The picture you see on line is not at all what the motel looks like. Terrible experience!!!!!!!
The manager in the morning realized how bad our stay had been that he gave me a partial refund without me having to prompt him. That was professional and appreciated. Unfortunately he seemed to be the only person there who acted that way.
Where should I begin? Among the many things that happened to us: - Non-smoking room reeked of smoke - Maid threw out our things (toothbrush case, ear plugs) - Maid didn't clean room, in fact threw our pillows all over the room and left them without pillowcases - Manager who was told about this problem made us wait an hour only to bring us 4 towels and 2 pillowcases for 2 people and 6 pillows - A mouse was found running around our room - Headboard fell off of bed Oh, and to add insult to injury, when we went to the soda machine to get a coke a ginger ale came out. That's a lot to happen in two nights. This place has a strange layout - there aren't nearly enough parking spaces for rooms especially in some areas, which means that you might have to park on the complete opposite side of the hotel from your room. When you have luggage, this is suffice to say really annoying. Also, the doors don't really close evenly (maybe how the mouse got in) and the keycard scanners take about 4 tries to work on average. Also, no breakfast - but at least they didn't lie about that. This hotel finished off a 2.5 month roadtrip/honeymoon for my wife and I across the US and I can honestly say this was the worst place we stayed at in the entire country. That puts in a lower class than places that actually gave us key cards on two consecutive occasions to other peoples bedrooms when we checked in, that had gaping holes and stains in our blankets, and that had prostitutes coming into the room next to us on rotation. If we were paying $40 a night for this shithole we might have shrugged it off as "you get what you pay for" but for nearly double that it's highway robbery. We could have stayed at a homeless shelter and had a better experience. Stay away.
horrible-had to cancel reservation and stay elsewhere
The price is good,the staff are friendly, and I think the room was comfortable.
I suppose it is reasonably priced for the Wash., DC area but hardly worth the cost. We booked a King, got 2 Queens, which was OK.
It is old and in rundown condition. It is in need of a complete overhaul
Room was nice, but location was not teh greatest. also, parking was an issue.
My reservation was 'strictly non-smoking room' which was forwarded by booking.com as 'non-smoking room requested', and on arrival we were given the most disgusting smoking room. Hotel was full so we could do little about it, but the staff did move us the next day.
Very disappointing. Old worn-down place with tired facilities, walls made of paper, doors which don't fit, very noisy due to building site opposite. Swimming pool only open limited hours.
Good location and staff was ok
Even non smoking smells if they smoked in it, rooms weren't cleaned properly
Hotel staff was very, very rude. Was not greeted or acknowledged in any way other than to have my room key tossed at me. Was not given a single, king-sized bed, but a smoky double with 2 queens, which was quite useless to me.
they moved my room after complaint made
bullet proof glass in lobby. Dirty feet smell in room. The air conditioning was like swamp cooler.
The hotel staff is helpful and caring. Silver Spring is a village in a city with excellent public trasnportation.
The cleanliness of the room could be better. Also there was no internet connection elsewhere than at the reception in front of a loud TV.
it was quiet and pretty nice. very close to the bus station and subway.
there was no wireless internet in the room
Poor maintance. ie: toilet flush handle would fall off, bathroom sink would not shut off completely. Staff did not speak clear English.
