We booked 3 double rooms via Agoda for a Saturday night stay following a family party in the Nottingham area. We checked in about 9.30 pm and were told that only 2 rooms had been booked, but were able to show a printed copy of booking form. After about 10 minutes, 3 key cards were handed over. Two of our rooms (101 & 105) turned out to be smoking rooms – all of us are non smokers who have never smoked. Such rooms should only be allocated if guests agree to this and we weren’t told, finding out from the room notices. Most will be surprised that such rooms are still legal as they are a workplace for hotel staff. The hotel was fully booked and could not offer other rooms. Room 101 particularly lived up to its dubious Orwellian reputation: the room and all linen (sheets and towels) stank of smoke; surfaces were dirty with stains and cigarette burns; the bathroom extractor fan didn’t work so no chance of drawing fresh air into the room by leaving it running; even worse, the shower was discovered the next morning to be unusable as the temperature control dial had broken, fixing the water temperature at scalding. We complained at the reception desk at check out and were sympathetically listened to by the temporary receptionist and the housekeeper who told us that Room 101 should not have been allocated at all due to known faults. The hotel manager was on annual leave and we were given her email address to raise our complaints. In fairness, Room 105, the other smoking room, smelt, but was “clean” enough. Room 118 was OK. All rooms were on the A50 side so traffic noise is inevitable with open windows, as there is no AC. We infer that the evening receptionist had insufficient rooms to fulfil our booking and knowingly allocated an unclean room with broken shower to provide a short term fix. Collapse

Came to the page to leave a review but they've been disabled...can understand why!! Just back from the Days Inn near Donnington Park...where to start!! Booked a family room for 2 adults and 2 children. The sofa bed was not only not made up but there wasn't even bedding in the room for it. Eventually got bedding from reception after they'd been to double check that there really wasn't any in the room. Not sure if there was a wasp nest near the room but we killed 3 during our stay. The double bed only had 1 pillow each...and they were so flimsy they were useless, eventually managed to get 2 extra pillows after being told the hotel was full and they'd run out! The extra pillows we were given stunk of smoke and clearly hadn't been laundered! Tried to shower when we woke this morning only to discover no hot water! When we complained on check out we were told the boiler had broken in the night and there was no hot water in the entire hotel! Still expected to pay full price though despite our issues (had paid on check in) and the only response was a flippant 'sorry I'll pass it on'. Speaking to another guest on leaving they told us they tried to shower before the concert the day before and there was no hot water so the boiler had clearly been out of order for longer than claimed. Will never use Days Inn again and recommend you avoid at all costs! Makes Faulty Towers look like a luxury 5* hotel. Also seems they only allow positive comments on their Facebook page!! Clearly have no care for their customers Collapse

Stayed a night before flying from East Midlands airport, took 15 mins to drive to the airport at 5am. Just off the A50 and you have to go back on yourself to get to correct junction, so could easily face a lot of traffic. Hotel room itself is basic but suitable for price. Only issue is there is nothing around the hotel and only a petrol station shop (with Costa) so plan to go out to eat, or each before arrival. They do have take away menus at reception. Collapse

Room 26 stank of damp throughout our one night stay. It was so bad, despite opening the window, that neither of us slept well. The carpet in the entrance hallway was so wet that we had to put our shoes on to go from the bedroom to the bathroom. The bathroom door was swollen with damp and would not shut. There was black mold around the bath and the door frame. There were stains on the sofa bed mattress.. When we told reception about it, they acted surprised and suggested something may have happened during the day before we arrived - I doubt mold could grow that quickly and the smell was ingrained in everything, so obviously a longstanding problem. I was told it would be looked into and someone would contact me. I'm still waiting. I emailed via the website the following day and again I am still awaiting a response. We paid £130 for the room, the price being inflated from the usual because of an event locally. I am disgusted and disappointed. This was a birthday present for my friend so she could have a night of relative peace and luxury, and it was anything but. Collapse
Ideal comfortable and great value

We have used the hotel twice now and each time it has been superb. Convenient for East Midlands Airport, clean, comfortable with friendly helpful staff. Highly recommended. Parking is easy and convenient and nothing is too much trouble. Excellent.
