Days Inn ~ Austin, Minnesota

On our way down to the Quad Cities area, we made a pit stop in Austin, Minnesota for the night. While there, we stayed at the Days Inn. It was a small hotel, but the price was right, it earned us more points with Wyndham rewards, and the location was convenient.

Check in was very easy for us upon arrival at the Days Inn. There were two levels at this hotel (no elevator), but our room was just up the stairs one the far end of the hotel. We were able to park our car close to the back door and easily use that to access our room.

The bathroom was off to the right upon entry, and we were pleasantly surprised with the newer looking vanity top and a whirlpool tub! Yes, I did take advantage of that!

Our king size bed was centered nicely in the middle of the room. Excuse the chaos of the picture. I snagged these in the morning before we left!


Similar to our Days Inn stay in Des Moines a few months prior, they had a “closet” space located on shared wall of the bathroom/bedroom space. I think it’s odd that once again it wasn’t in the entry way or closed off, but this seems to maybe be a new trend in Days Inns.


In front of the bed was a large TV stand/dresser and a smaller stand that contained a microwave and fridge, with a desk off to the side.


The Days Inn also had a small breakfast area, with a separate room that contained tables and the coffee maker area. As is typical of Days Inns, the breakfast options were limited, but we still found something good to eat.


Overall the hotel isn’t much to write home about, but it worked for a place to lay your head. It was located just off I-90 and near both a Walmart and Hy-vee, as well as several restaurants.
