The room was not clean. Underneath the toilet seat was dirty. There was filth on the carpet and the wall by the air conditioner. The refrigerator leaked water and someone had put a towel down next to it. And I parked my vehicle in the parking lot, right across from the main office, and when I came out the next...

The hallways smelled like smoke and our room had a funny old and musty smell. Housekeeping did not make our beds appropriately, it looked like they just pulled up the covers and that was it. The "breakfast" was definitely not worth even mentioning in their "amenities".

I have spent a lot of time on the road, in hotels. Last night at Days Inn Ames was my worst experience ever at a hotel. I pulled back the sheets to find urine stains and hair. These beds had been made by housekeeping... There was candy and crumbs on the floor, an empty Dr. Pepper bottle between bed and...

Would not have booked if I knew it was a smoking hotel. Strong cigarette smell by our non-smoking room. The towels were not very nice to use. Not very soft and I had my doubts if they were really very clean. The sheets on the bed looked like they hadn't been changed. Beds were real lumpy and hard. Very small...
