Days Inn Complaint - Unsafe Hotel and Unresponsive Staff
KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE -- I traveled to Knoxville for an extremely important business presentation. I arrived Thursday night and stayed at the Days Inn near the Knoxville Airport. The room was acceptable.
At 2AM, I was awoken by a group of thuggishly-dressed adult males (8-10) running from car to car in the Hotel Parking Lot trying to break in. I called the office and insisted that management call the police. Nothing happened. I called again after 30 minutes. Again, nothing happened. I ended up not sleeping for the rest of the night in fear that they would break into my car and/or the room. (I am an Army veteran - still there was no way I was going to go out there) At checkout, management pretended that nothing happened.
It turns out that this Hotel shares the parking lot with one of those druggy hotels where everything goes and they choose to ignore disturbances. I lost a potential life-changing software contract the next day in some part due to a look of exhaustion.
Days Inn had a good ring in my mind prior to this stay. Now, I will never stay in a Days Inn again. I recommend that you avoid this Hotel at all costs - stay at the Airport Hilton for $50 more - it is worth it.
