I've stayed at the Days Inn a couple of times for business trips. It's adequate, but not as comfortable as the hotels around it. It's sometimes available when the other hotels are sold out.

The Days Hotel is right in the center of a Big Ten university campus with great local bars, like Stub and Herbs, and easy access to many weeks’ worth of activities such as The Weisman Art Museum, canoe trips on the Mississippi River, biking (many trail accesses nearby), shopping (Mall of America), and theater (The Guthrie Theater is just a short bike ride up the Mississippi River). The lobby is small as are the rooms and bathrooms. I am a clean bug, and I liked that everything looked well kept and not old and dingy. I was not super excited at the idea of staying overnight because of the cramped rooms. As a business traveler or someone on a budget visiting Minneapolis (already having ruled out couch surfing) I would be cool with staying here because of the proximity to a guaranteed good time.

First to Review

Though the lobby and rooms are a bit dated, the Days Inn is what you might expect for budget accommodations in a central area of the city. While you’re a short walk from the University of Minnesota campus and several great places to eat, you’ll have to put up with Light Rail construction if you visit before 2014. For this reason, I’d suggest a room on a higher floor and at the back of the building to elude construction noise. While you shouldn’t expect luxury, the free parking, free shuttle within 3 miles of the hotel, free breakfast, and free wi-fi are definite perks. Rumor has it a fitness center is almost complete (due in Fall 2012), which is another plus. Good eats nearby are Punch Pizza (some say the best pizza ever), the Tea House (adjacent to the hotel), and Stub & Herbs (just a block west of the hotel).
