I'm a down-earth person that does not expect luxury and budget hotels usually meet my needs - I need a comfortable bed, a clean room, a clean bathroom, and feel safe. Days Inn fell short of my expectations. I have stayed here many times and it's gone downhill in the last few years.
The good- Convenient location in North Albq with easy Freeway access; inexpensive; one of the few places you can get a 2 room suite with 2 bathrooms; AC worked; front desk staff is mostly helpful; fairly quiet; room is fairly clean - but old; the bathroom needs work and could have been cleaner --- and it would have been nice to have a toilet that worked
The Bad - Hard beds; toilet would not work despite being 'fixed' 4 times; housekeeping is lax; some of the outside areas are dirty (around elevator); breakfast is the same every day and is mediocre at best. Manager never available. I would not stay on street level rooms - only on 2nd or 3rd level - I DID NOT FEEL SAFE at night on street level. My room was on the 3rd floor and our group stayed together when we went outside at night.
I'm planning to find other accommodations the next time I come to Albq.... a Hampton Inn perhaps? This hotel was a Hampton about 10 years ago.More
