"Clean & Well Kept Hotel"

"The hotel was old and dirty. There were stains on the walls and showers."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Stains everywhere, my family and I were so disappointed. The room even had little flea like bugs flying around in the room. The shower curtain was even stained. The room also has a mildew oder. I was also charged twice and had to get it straightened out with my bank and the reservation department. Hopefully it will not take long to get my money back. This was the worst trip I have had in a very long time. The pool was closed.

"Rude Staff"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The staff was super rude. He accused me of something that didn't happen when if he did his job right and actually looked at my ID and listened to my name when I said it he would have seen my reservation. He got an attitude for no reason. Also they did not do any room service and my “non smoking” room smelled strongly of cigarettes. Now all my clothes and luggage stink. I heavily do not recommend this hotel.

Overall Score2.0/ 5

"Didn’t spend the night."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
When we arrived, the road had been cordoned off by police. When we finally got access to the motel, the lobby was closed and we were directed to a security entrance. I specifically asked if the area was safe. The desk attendant said the only reason the lobby was locked was because they didn't want people from the adjacent McDonald's restaurant to use their restrooms. The room we were given was on the highway side of the building and the noise was very loud. The property is not well maintained. There was a lot of trash on the stairs. Once we were in the room, the mattresses were sunken in the middle and the lights did not work. We decided, despite being told the fees were non refundable, not to stay. The room was noisy, shabby and in need of repairs and we did not feel safe. We would advise Days Inn by Wyndham to take a close look at how that property is being managed. We would not recommend a stay at Days Inn by Wyndham at exit 111 in Columbus, OH.

"Poor Quality"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The walls in the room were disgusting and caving in. Definitely soft to the touch. The bathroom looked like it had not been clean and some of the ceiling was broken and falling apart. Definitely a health hazard. Wires from a lamp were also exposed. Didn't even stay one night.

"Was sufficient for what we needed."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Front desk personel were very curtious and helpful. Rooms were a bit smaller than I expected but the room was clean. Was a pretty quiet visit not alot of foot traffic outside the room yet our visit was in the middle of the week. I have definitely considered staying again and spending this visit for leasure to attend the Ohio State Fair.

"Strong, hot shower, clean bed, free breakfast."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I expected worse based on reviews online, but it was in a good location for what we were in town for, so I took a chance. The bed was clean, the shower was strong and hot, there was a continental breakfast that was as good as any I've seen. I couldn't find any reason to complain. There was a lot going on in the parking lot at night, but nothing that kept us from sleeping. I would stay here again.

This hotel was awful. It smelled horrible, the lock didn't work properly, the phone was nonfunctional, the TV was old and outdated, there was a hole in the floor carpet, the bathroom floor was dirty, there were holes in my sheets, the pillows were small, and the water flooded through the ceiling. Need I say more?

"We greatly appreciate your help. We had made arrangements with a hotel and then found out that it was located in a bad part of town. The trip is in three weeks and we felt doomed. I found your site and we had bids from three hotels within 1 hour. On such short notice and a larger group .. We are thrilled !! Thanks !!" T.G. - Missouri City, MO
