    I really would not recommend staying here. Its a run down sub par hotel in a nice suburb of Minneapolis. They charged $57.56 for the night which seemed like a good deal but it wasn't. I have stayed at Days Inns before that were nice but this was not one of them. There were certain spots on the carpet in the room that looked like they hadn't been vacuumed in months( i.e. dirt, dust, lint etc. on the carpet). I couldn't charge anything in one of the two open power outlets in the room because it was loose and my phone and computer charger kept falling out of it. Also the air conditioning unit barely worked and the free Wi-Fi was terribly slow.  They allow pets at the hotel and there was a dog in the room next door to us that howled from about 6 pm to 11 pm(we called the front desk to complain twice before they did anything about  it). Finally when my fiance and myself went to go to bed we found dried blood stains on the top sheet and had to go down to the front desk to get a clean sheet. I should also note the majority of the people staying there were on the seedier looking side which made me concerned about the safety of my vehicle overnight since I was in the process of moving back to FL from ND and had a lot packed into my car(luckily my car was not broken into or vandalized). Since we had so many issues the front desk guy was nice enough to take $20 off of our final bill but still I would never stay here again if I was in the Minneapolis area or recommend that anyone else stay here either.

    We just moved up to MN, & I had to drive up a day earlier than planned to beat an impending snow storm.  There aren't a ton of pet friendly hotels in Plymouth.  I believe the only other option is the recently opened Residence Inn down the street from the Days Inn.  The Days Inn charged $47/night with a $10 pet fee vs. Residence Inn's rate of $149/night + $100 pet fee.  Seriously?

    Anyway, I specified ahead of time that I needed a room large enough to put a pack & play in the bathroom (sounds gross, but when you have a toddler, you'll understand), 2 adults, & 2 cats.  Oh, & non-smoking.  I had to switch rooms 3x before they got it right.

    The room wasn't bad--a little dark & musty smelling, but for one night, who really cares?  If we had to be there for any extended period, I might have gotten a little grossed out, but you can't beat the price.

    Oh, & they forgot to charge me the pet fee!

    I can barely even give one star for this wreckage. Although we paid for a 5 Day stay, we had to leave after the first day. Yes! It was that bad! It reeked cigarette smoke, it was so dirty we didn't even want to take a bath because it might have been a serious disease conception risk. Stay away especially if you are a family and you don't want your kids to get second hand poisoned from the cigarette smoke.

    Back again.....  new management, lots of changes.  Some done, some in the next few weeks,...  excersize room coming, bus. Center coming.  Bigger breakfast are should done this week..  so much, good coming.   Rooms still big, clean, clean, clean.  Head houskeeper, Jessica, is amazing.  New personnel at front desk, can't say enough good.they do not allow unhappy guests!  Tiffani has a smile that is always there.  She loves people, and it shows.  If you are in the area this is the place! Walking to  great restaurants too.

    I was impressed! I don't get impressed easily. I had a disaster business trip and am so thankful for the great staff at Days inn. It was a great bright spot in a difficult few days. Usually I would be very negative, but I am not, because my experience at this hotel exceeded my expectations.  Even during the construction, where they are enlarging the breakfast room, the service was excellent. The rooms were clean and quiet.

    My company scheduled me to come back to the area and I gave them one condition. to stay at Days Inn on Empire Lane. In a few months they should have the new fitness room ready.

    I am looking forward to coming back soon. Special thanks to Tiffani and Scott at the front desk who help make my time here enjoyable.

    I Highly Recommend....great job!!!

    My boyfriend and I stayed here for about $380 for four nights total. We booked about three months in advance. Front desk staff (I mainly encountered the college students) was very friendly. People in Minnesota really are nicer! Was allowed to check-in early at about 10 AM which was great. Our room was very clean, did not smell or see anything foul. Housekeeping kept our sheets and towels fresh. TV allows for USB plug-in so you can bring your hard drive to watch movies! There's also an in-room safe large enough to secure a 13" laptop for $1/day. Fourth floor was very silent throughout the day and night but I can imagine the second floor being quite loud in the mornings since that's where the free breakfast is. The free breakfast was very basic and the only offerings were three types of bread, cereal, oatmeal, waffles and cheese omelets. There was also a fridge of yogurt and of course juice, milk and coffee. Still a good pick-me-up prior to brunch. My only gripe is that the free wi-fi was so bad it was unusable around high traffic times (around 9 PM/10 PM). The most attractive part of this hotel was it's proximity to the Light Rail. It's almost on site, something like a 400 ft walk. We were able to get to Downtown Minneapolis/St. Paul and to and from the airport for less than $15 during the entire trip. Free transfers onto any bus within 2 1/2 hours! Because it's so close to UMN, the area is very safe, busy and well-lit. It's obviously not a four-star hotel but it's definitely worth your money if you're just trying to see the city on a limited budget and need a place to crash.

    What Happened to this place??

    This place has turned into a huge DUMP over the last year.

    Not 1 ice machine worked in the whole hotel.

    The whole bathroom was full of mildew and peeling ugly wallpaper.

    The front desk girl was too busy playing with Dogs and talking to guys..

    Didn't have any change at all for the vending machines.

    My sheets were filthy and smelled like dog/cat urine.

    I've stayed here 4 times now.. I will not be back. Went from 4-5 stars to 1.

    Very, very comfortable stay here. I used points to earn a couple of free days (thank you, Wyndham Rewards Program) and paid a third day due to how comfortable I was. The hotel was super quiet, considering how packed it was for the Minnesota State Fair. Conveniently located to the interstate and surrounded by Perkin's restaurant, Lucky's Pub and another restaurant, I found it easy to walk to dinner, should I required it. The front desk was more than accommodating to me, and the breakfast? Now that's what I'm talking about! Fresh doughnuts (meh, but okay), bagels, waffles, toast, an assortment of cereals, juices and coffee. This is what a continental breakfast should be like.

    And the room? Quite spacious with a king bed (at least in mine, room #300), two easy chairs, goods sized desk, ironing board w/iron, fridge + microwave and a safe for valuables. Certainly appreciated. The internet is a good plus as well with good bandwidth even with a hotel at 95-100% occupancy. I had no problems getting work done.

    I am so glad that I used my points here and hope to stay here again when back in the Twin Cities. Thank you, Days Inn!

    I could've sworn I rated this place earlier in the summer but I guess that was all in my head. I stayed here in May with my mom and it looked just like it did when I went to the U back in 2004.

    The rooms smelled a little dingy and could use some serious upgrades with the finishes and particularly in the bathroom area. We bought an air freshener at the MOA and that really helped with the stale smell.

    Flash forward to 6 months later. We enter the hotel and wow did the lobby get a major upgrade. I was hoping the rooms also got major upgrades but our room only had small updates. Bedding, lamps etc. The bathroom still looked the same. There wasn't any weird smells though so that was a plus.

    When we were checking in, I asked the front desk person if any of the rooms were upgraded, and he said the 2nd floor was fully upgraded, alas we were on a different floor. But I will remember to ask for that floor if I visit Minneapolis again soon.

    Our November visit was for the Minnesota v Ohio State football game and this hotel is PRIME location to the stadium. They're literally neighbors. I highly recommend staying here if you're traveling from out of town for a Gopher or Viking game.
