Verified Reviews of Days Inn by Wyndham West Des Moines

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Horrible Experience"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Bad experience, wanted to charge $250 on my card when I had already paid for the room in advance, I was told that is what they do. two crappy towels in a room with two queen beds and meant for four people. I had to fight for another set of towels because I had not brought the used ones back, no refrigerator or microwave in room. Not provided any glasses to drink water or anything else, but did have an ice bucket! the water temp in the shower never got above room temperature, I had to go ask for everything, more toilet paper, more towels, more coffee packs, trash bags to empty my own trash etc. No room service offered during the stay, only after I check out.

"Dirty carpet and floors."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
It didn't smell good and they never cleaned rooms they wouldn't bring towels or anything for shower.

04-Jun-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Sat May 29 to Fri Jun 04 2021 at a $55.66 average nightly rate.
"Breakfast was a disappointment."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
If they aren't going to give a breakfast as advertised they should give a discount.

20-Jun-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Jun 17 to Thu Jun 18 2020 at a $54.50 average nightly rate.
"Worst hotel I've ever been in!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This by far is the worst hotel I've ever been in! It was so musty and smelled like it had sitting water in it. The front desk couldn't get my reservation correct. And when I finally got into my room, the air conditioner cord was electrical taped back together and had a blood stain on the bed cover. There was food under the window that obviously hadn't been picked up in months. I'm not fussy on where I stay and generally don't write reviews, but I will never stay here again and will tell all my friends not to stay here.

"Hotel Planner was the worst."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Motel was old. Breakfast was bad. Eggs cold. No oatmeal they didn't want to make any more. Hotel Planner was the worst. The reservations were totally screwed up. Tried to reserve a block had to reserve individually and then when people called in they couldn't look them up. Had to cancel before four supposedly no one had called in when in fact they did.

"Was Outdated, Smelled Bad, Dirty."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Lobby was very stinky, rooms and hallways are so outdated and not very nice. The bedspread had multiple stains on it. .. If there was another option we would have left.

"No review to give, no refund policy for error on website, no refund!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Actually the website hotels4teams is horrible. No refund for cancellation policy when their website did not change the dates I had posted. So now I am charged for a room I didn't even use. How nice! NOT! So everyone do not use this HOTELS4TEAMS website as if it makes a mistake on your reservations you still have to pay for your room. NOT HAPPY! LISA Weeks.
