We stayed at the Days Inn for 3 nights. All in all, it was perfectly acceptable given the very low rate we paid for a hotel on the parkway. If you are looking for anything remotely luxurious, then this is definitely not the place for you, but if you want to save money and be close to shopping and the entrance to the park, then you're in luck. We got a room with a king-sized bed, which was located right next to the indoor pool; fortunately the pool closes at 9 pm, so we didn't have any issues with the noise often associated with swimming pools. The bathroom was very small, and some of the tile in the shower stall was patched with big pieces of linoleum that had been glued up (I guess they ran out of the good tile?) but it was fine for the time we were there. The internet access was a little sporadic, so don't depend on it if you need to upload a ton of pictures to Facebook or do any legitimate work while you're there. The continental breakfast is extremely sparse; coffee, juice, donuts, a few danishes, and two kinds of cereal. You'll probably want to venture out to one of the many pancake houses instead. Would we stay there again? Probably, but we're not super picky about our accomodations as long as the bed is clean and the location is safe. Oh, the website does promote their new flat-screen TV's but we didn't have one; I did however see in some rooms that some did.
