"hell"
"Woke up at 4 in the morning to smashing around and partying. Someone was knocking on my door. Cops showed up. Someone pulled the fire alarm was going off until 5 a.m. no remotely in the room for tv. No conditioner in the shower for my wife. Went to the complimentary breakfast it was horrible. There was about 20 19 year old kids that said the eff word every other word. Very bad experience."

"If you are coming to party a weekend in Windsor, this is your place. The 2nd floor I stayed in, is the smoking floor and was basically a party itself!! GREAT walking distance to all the clubs, bars, and the casino. I highly recommend this for people like me and a couple of buddy's who just wanted somewhere to pass out. Make sure you make your way to the Treehouse Bar and Grill on Oulette avenue, GREAT time and cheap drinks!!"

Jacki from Westland, MI US rated Days Inn - Windsor 2 out of 10 on July 17, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"I have never been so disgusted with my stay at a hotel before. The staff was very inexperienced and unfriendly. Instead of booking us for one room with four people, they ended up mistakingly booking us for four rooms! Then they tried to put the blame on us and said that if they could not sell the rooms by the end of the night, then we would have to pay for all of them. We refused and made a scene, and finally they agreed to only charge us for one room. Never have I had to deal with such a rude staff. You would think that they would go "the extra mile" when guests are paying an arm and a leg for such a worthless room. On top of that, we were supposed to be provided with free parking, but of course there wasn't enough so we had to park down the street and pay $7.00 for a dark and scary parking structure. We also had an alarm clock that did not work properly so we couldn't set a timer to get up in the morning, then we went to call the front desk and ask them for a wake up call, but...OFCOURSE...the phone did not work. I went to the front desk and they said that they would have someone come up at 10:30 and knock on the door for us, but they did not even show up until 11:00!...I usually never complain about anything...but who would be satisfied after all of that? The Days Inn just wasn't worth the money...I wouldn't pay half of that for such a dump!"

"While we were there a glass door was broken out by someone staying there, Also the fire alarm was going off @ 3:00 in the morning and would not turn off for about 15 mins. Asked for iron they said only had 1 and it was loaned out. We lost power on half of room so no T.V. until they fixed it. We paid for 3 rooms, it cost over 400.00 for 1 night I think for that money it was not worth it."

"This place shouldn't be used, unless you are an underaged drinker looking for a place to party.Very noisy. The elevators didnt work at any time during our stay.Probably haasn't been cleaned or painted in 10 years.Staff needs to learn about customer service or at the very least,be friendly or helpful.Should be a $50 hotel, not $160."

"The hotel is decent, it's just that the last few times that we have stayed overnight, were always on a floor with alot of young kids, who are great until about 3a.m when they come back and wake you up. Also the last two times, our room needed work. the heat/air source wouldn't shut off or come on like it should of, something was wrong with thermastat, when we looked at it, the cover was broke, so this may be damaged. But the bathroom had no towels, and the bathroom slide door left a 4 inch gap that wouldn't close for anything. But other than that, things were good."
