You know exactly what you’re getting with a Days Inn - a cheap (hopefully, book early!), conveniently located and comfortable overnight stop. No frills. This particular Days Inn seems to have fared a bit better than some of the others - the room, decor, carpet, bedding, bathroom - all in good order, no complaints. The room had a fan as it was very hot, a nice touch. Friendly staff too. The nightly charge for dogs here is £10, compared to £5 in all the other Days Inns I’ve stayed at, although I gather this is imposed by the services operator Roadchef and not the hotel. That said, it’s easily the best for dogs, with a great walking area on a hilly slope beside the hotel - you can actually take your dog for a proper walk, not just a drag around the car park!
One point to note: some Days Inns sell a small range of beer and wine, this one doesn’t. And although you are welcome to drink in your room, none of the concessions in the service area sell alcohol. So if you fancy a tipple in your room remember to plan ahead!
All in all, for a long-distance drive stopover I’d happily stay again.More
