EVANSDALE, IOWA -- My husband and I stayed at the Days Inn in Evansdale Iowa for a special Valentines weekend. My wife is a huge New Orleans fan and there is a New Orleans themed restaurant and lounge in Waterloo Iowa so we booked a hot tub suite at the Days Inn. Upon arriving we were told we were in a smoking room when we requested a non-smoking room. They refused to change our room or give us any discount, they did however offer to downgrade our room to a non hot tub suite at the same rate we were paying. We said no so they over saturated the room with air freshener which only made it worse. We went to dinner and upon returning to the hotel started filling the hot tub. The water was brown and had stuff floating in it. We contacted the front desk and the clerk advised us she was told by management not to give us any refunds, change our room or accommodate us in any way. They told us to drain and fill the tub several times and it would clear up. We did that and the water was still brown. We then found old food in the sleeper sofa and some kind of bug eating it. There was mold all around the hot tub. We decided to leave the hotel and not stay the night. If the tub was that gross and the room was that dirty there was no way we were sleeping in that bed. The room was a dive, the staff was rude beyond explanation and the General Manager was a total jerk. We paid $129 for a room we never used. Never again will we stay at any Days Inn hotel.
