Hotel Review: Days Inn - Olathe - A highly unsatisfactory stay

Days Inn - Olathe

By Mike Thayer

The Days Inn in Olathe, Kansas does not give a rat's rear end about its customers.

I could write a number of paragraphs about how bad, how run down and how poor the customer service at this hotel is, but I think in this case, bullet points and the pics tell the story just fine.

  • Terrible customer service, front desk not always staffed - "ring the bell" for service.  Customer needs not met
  • Website lists a free breakfast as one of the amenities.  There is none to speak of, the only thing available in their 'breakfast' area was coffee. 
  • The indoor pool is closed, won't open until May 2022
  • Stayed during a snow storm of 5" with strong winds and 3' snow drifts, hotel did not plow parking lot, leaving vehicles trapped, couldn't leave hotel
  • Rooms outdated, run down
  • Broken ice machine

Want coffee? You have to unplug something to plug in the coffee pot... and they only give you one package of regular coffee

I selected this hotel for a recent business trip because it was close to my work site and a recent stay at the neighboring La Quinta was less-than-stellar so I figured the Days Inn couldn't be any worse.  Wow as I wrong!  This Days Inn made the La Quinta look pretty good!

I paid $161.10 to include taxes for a two night stay at this hotel and I would have left on the second day if not for the snow storm and getting trapped at the hotel.  Truth be told, I should have found a different hotel right after walking in to check in at 4:30pm and having to ring the bell for service at the front desk.

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!  There is nothing good at all to say about it.

I'm giving the Days Inn of Olathe, Kansas just 1 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap Stars.  It is NOT worthy of a reservation, the website looks FAR better than the reality and you could even say it's false advertising.

1 star

$pend Wisely My Friends...  I certainly didn't on this occasion.  After two unsatisfying stays in Olathe, Kansas (La Quinta and now the Days Inn, both under the Wyndham Hotels/Resorts umbrella by the way), and with more trips to Olathe on the agenda, it's time to start driving out of my way to stay at a Hampton Inn, my normal go-to.

Not only outdated, but too cheap to have a bedside clock
