    Nothing

    Homeless people sleeping under stairs and joining us for breakfast, the green pool, the black filth in the tub, the disgusting stains on the furniture, stains on the walls. Don't know why days Inn has not pulled this franchise.

  • 4.6

    I liked that I was able to park my car in front of the room. And the staff was very friendly.

    The room was clean however definitely needed improvements. The bathroom was not clean. The shower was clogged, bath tub cracking, the tile was chipped and the towels are very cheap. The carpet and chairs in the room were stained.

  • 7.0

    The young lady who checked me in was extremely pleasant and helpful.

    The property is under remodel so small items like the ice machine not working and broken glass at the pool.

  • 7.0

    I really liked the coffee pot in the room.

    The tea could be better or more diverse. Perhaps provide some dairy creamer for the coffee.

  • 7.4

    The important stuff is ok. The rooms are clean. Everything works. Pool is ok. Breakfast excellent for the price. Greyhound bus just across the street. 10 min. walk into S.Tucson city centre.

    The grounds are scruffy, but always have been. Gives a bad first impression.

  • 5.4

    No eggs.

    This Days Inn needs a serious remodel, upgrade.

  • 2.8

    I like the pool that was it

    When I got room it had drug paraphernalia in drawer from previous customer when asked to move rooms they refused I was pretty up set my mother in law paid by credit card for us and she was mad too the staff was rude and not helpful or understanding

  • 8.8

  • 3.2

    They were big rooms that's bout it

    There was trash under bed still beer cans...staff was rude...the beds wernt comfortable.. There was no parking...

  • 9.6

    Nice breakfast, bed was comfy. Great location for travelers, right on the freeway and close to Downtown Tucson. I like that they are environmentally aware.

    There was no coffee maker in the room.

  • 7.8

    THe staff was great in every way.

    The pool was closed and we didn't have a rmote control for the TV.

  • 5.8

    location is close to town. easy walk from the bus (greyhound) breakfast is good. room had been recently refurbed.

    the grounds let the place down, really ratty and scruffy. The gem show had finished a week ago but still not cleared away.

  • 5.4

    Staff was friendly, although took forever to get checked in and out.

    Rooms in dire need of repair

  • 3.8

    Almost nothing

    Cockroach dying (not dead yet) in corner; carpet filty; bed sagging; blanket dirty; bed cover dirty; no vanity in bathroom, just sink. No breakfast as promised.

  • 6.6

    Smoking and handicapped room was given away before our arrival.We requested both. The desk clerk did find us a room for smoking on first floor. I am unable to walk up the stairs. They have no elevator.
