On November 25, 2011, my family and I went to Days Inn Brookings for my son's wedding rehearsal dinner. The service and food quality was so awful and the prices were so outlandishly high that I would highly recommend that No One Use This Location (that's Days Inn Brookings) For Any Type Of Event in the future. First, the company kept changing what it was willing to offer as dinner options after the orders had been placed. Then, before the dinner, there was a question about how to include additional people, but we were never directed to anyone at Days Inn who could help us. Someone was supposed to show up prior to the dinner, but they never did. The dinner itself was a joke. The teriyaki chicken and tiny steaks were served with baked potatoes and canned beans. The salad consisted of iceberg lettuce and a few carrot shavings. For drinks, we had a choice of ice tea or milk in little plastic dixie-size cups. There was no coffee and no dessert. The room was plain with round tables - absolutely no ambiance whatsoever - and the tables were placed several feet apart so it was impossible for people sitting at different tables to intermingle. For all of this "grandeur" we paid over $18.00 per person. I realize that in a bigger city, this would be exactly what one might expect. However, this was BROOKINGS, SD! At other establishments within the area, $18.00 buys a much nicer meal. Plus, the cost of this meal was about half of the cost of the entire wedding (not including the cost for renting the hall, which was available for almost two whole days and was huge compared to the little room where the dinner was held). There was also a buffet included at the wedding that served twice as many people and included two complementary drinks (even alcoholic beverages were free). The day after the dinner, before the wedding itself, again someone from the hotel was supposed to show up to discuss the event. Again, no one did. When the bride's mother actually sought out a manager to discuss the event and get some details straightened out, she was treated very rudely. Take my advice - if you want your child's wedding to be meaningful for all the right reasons, Do Not Go To Days Inn Brookings."
Unique Quality: Uniquely terrible value
Don't let the nice picture on the website fool you--this place is a dump! It is very old, and the whole place stinks like cigarette smoke and mildew. The halls are poorly lit, and the doors to the outside don't even lock, so anyone has access to the place. They don't clean the rooms, just make the beds and change the towels, which is disgusting. I found a green bean under the desk, and there was a USED tampon applicator in the Kleenex holder in the bathroom (vomit). There were crumbs in the hallway leading to the lobby that never got vacuumed up while we were there. There was a bloody Kleenex behind the nightstand, and some mysterious rust-colored stains on one of the mattresses. The third day of our stay, the room was not "cleaned" at all. The cable TV didn't work properly, either. If we hadn't prepaid for this hotel, there is NO WAY I would have stayed there.
