When all you need is a good room to stay for several days this Days Inn is the place for you. The personnel are very friendly and helpful. The room is clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to restaurants and the University. Oh and the price is very reasonable.

Although the hotel truly needs to be updated, it was clean, and the staff were super friendly and accommodating! We were there to go back and forth to the hospital, so it was very convenient and served it's purpose. The German lady was AMAZING...loved her! I'm sorry but I'm terrible with names! lol!!!
