Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    That they refunded my money so that I could go to a different hotel

    Smell was horrific. Very large stains on carpet in halls. Scary!

  • Older travelers

    It was close to Chicago and inexpensive the staff was very friendly Dick Craig

  • Older travelers

    The Days Inn Portage is an older facility (sort of like me, at 71) and as such has some issues, such as stained hall carpeting, the lock on the swimming pool door that doesn't work, etc. However, it is clear that work has been done to keep the place up as well as possible. However, our room smelled and was clean, the ac and tv worked and the bathroom was in excellent condition, including good toiletries and clean, newer towels. I rated the staff "good" mostly because of their friendliness and apparent work ethic. At least one person on staff was dressed in what appeared to be filthy clothes. However, that person was also quite friendly and helpful when I asked for assistance overcoming the swimming pool lock problem. All in all, we are glad we stayed here. Thanks to all.

    Soiled carpets, lack of towels (you could use older, worn towels for this task) in the swimming pool area, swimming pool access (if your staff member had not been willing to manually trip the door lock I'd have missed my only opportunity for a morning workout). Staff should all wear clean uniforms, or at least some sort of identifying shirt logo or badge. I hope these minor corrections can be worked out and that you will keep this hotel open - at the current lower prices!

  • Family with children

    The maintenance man was drunk when he came to fix our door. I talked to him the next morning and smelled alcohol on him again!! There were small bugs on the floor we kept killing.... Not fun!! It was the cheapest place to stay........ You get what you pay for!!! We like the Days Inn but will never go back there again!!

  • Family with children

    Good location from our itinerary and next to a Denny's restaurant.

    Older hotel. Small bathroom. There was also a cobweb in the bathroom. This was our first experience with a hotel using a presence detector on the air conditioner. Woke up in the middle of the night sweating since the air shut off automatically. Not a great experience with the pool either.

  • Family with children

    staff was pleasant and responsive

    toilet needed some adjustment to get it working---they did that. Window was open and screen had fallen off, so we struggled with flying bugs through the night (luckily, not mosquitoes). Back door to building did not lock.

  • Family with children

    The gentlemen working at the front desk the day I left, I can't seem to remember his name but is was July 6th around 9:30 am, he was so extremely caring and kind, much different then I girl I spoke with the night before about why we had to leave early.

    I didn't like that the breakfast room was UN-airconditioned, I didn't like the way I was treated by the young lady when I told her our visit had to be cut short due to a death in my family and she was cold and callus.

  • Single

    It wasnt outside and had heat.

    This place was an overpriced super 8. For the quality of rooms the charge should have been $35 to $40 tops.

  • Family with children

    The breakfast service is poor. The lady's attitude is terrible!!! Stop supplying new food just because the breakfast time is 9 am!

  • Group of friends

    Our toilet was running and we had to switch rooms rather than just have it fixed. Why was it even broken and undetected to begin with? it wouldnt stop running. Sheets were dirty, with crusty stuff on them. Bathroom wallpaper peeling. Cigarette smell throughout the building.
