We came over to San Antonio for a funeral, stayed at a Homewood Suites, and the “hot” breakfast was not nearly as good as it once was when the chain was a new idea. 😐 Of interest another change of standards, housekeeping is only on request and with 24 hrs notice. That’s ok, because we have not ever wanted daily room service.
 
My first experience with the whole Days Inn-Comfort Inn chain was just recently. (I was trying to think cheap.) The complimentary “breakfast bar” consisted of coffee, juice machines (that had run out), the palest bagels ever seen, and oatmeal packets. I don’t know why they even bother.

And the TV in our room…half the channels were MIA, and the other half were mislabeled. Imagine turning to “CSPAN” and finding a bevy of voluptuous ladies showing off their derrières…or getting NewsMax on a station labeled MTV.
 
My bar is low:
1. no bedbugs (luckily hasn't happened...yet)
2. No weed/smoke smell (obviously happened)
3. not interested in hearing people having sex in the other room (happened)
4. Have a private bathroom (apparently it isn't a given in NYC)
5. AC/Heating
6. Coffee
7. EV charger (if I drive there)

I agree, daily housekeeping is annoying, though they do refill the coffee packs. If we travel with the kids they get super excited about it no matter what (it's really cute). If I travel alone (i.e., for work), I work, order GrubHub and catch up on sleep. I don't care much about the backdrop.

In-room coffee packs can be pretty bad, though. I haven’t had a good one yet.

And yeah, noise. Mrs. Veil and I tried to turn in for the night at that Days Inn, only to hear bass thumping from the next room. It was not the hotel’s fault, but it was still annoying. Luckily we were so dead tired we fell asleep anyway.

They are horrid indeed:) but i drink 3-4 cups of coffee a day. So at this point I’d get a withdrawal migraine without it.

That’s annoying too. People taking subwoofers to hotel rooms have a special place in hell.
