Here is a picture of the ICONIC HOLIDAY INN roadside sign from the 1960's through the 1970's.  How many times do you recall seeing this sign when you were traveling as a child?  :bigsmile:

This is the former McCurdy hotel in Evansville IN.  It was later used as a retirement complex and is being reworked for Condo usage.

Days Inn came out with a new logo... i liked the old one better.   The website currently shows the old one.  It will probably take some time before the logo appears on all hotels, brochures and tiny soaps and shampoos.

Check out this link to a former Susse Chalet in Plymouth NH.  Its now a Best Inn but the old website remains

Many former Susse Chalet Hotels.  A lot of them became Fairfield Inns.  One of them changed brand again to become a LaQuinta Inn.

Here are all the logo changes that occured in the past years.  The best to me are Best Western, Days Inn and Comfort that are still classic in a way.  The worst changes are Radisson, Econo Lodge and Red Roof Inns.

The Days Inn in Watertown NY just lost its Denny's.  Now the owner says he is trying to get another restaurant in there.  He is also saying that he might even switch the hotel to another chain as well.  Not too much to choose from, though.  There's already a Quality Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Ramada and Best Western there.

It's not on their website, but there was an article in The Meriden Record-Journal that The Days Inn on Route 322 in the Milldale section of Southington, CT was sold and will re-open in a few months as an Econo Lodge.

The Susse Chalet in Southington, CT is now a dirty and disgusting Howard Johnson Express. Review after Review for this thing talk about how dirty and gross the place is.

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g33931-d119810-Reviews-Howard_Johnson_Express_Southington-Southington_Connecticut.html

The place is so dirty and disgusting that there is belief among the employees of The Price Chopper next door is that when you get a room at The Howard Johnson you get 4 Mice for the price of 1.

the hotels I usually stay at are like Super 8 or Motel 6 (at least it saves money) and they have free wireless. I stayed at a few hotels like Best western in HAckensack and this expensive one in Phili and there was 20 more dollars than the advertised price!!! I hated those added on costs.

in hotels I have stayed at I am happy that no one (bellboy) tries to help me with my luggage and him start grabbing it to help me. You can guess why I dont want someone to help me with my luggage.

When I went to King of Prussia, PA last summer I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. I had a great stay. I was originally gonna stay at the Motel 6 but the person I was going to be seeing told me not to stay there because someone was murdered in that hotel 10 or 15 years ago.

When my parents vacationed in Keene, New Hampshire last summer they enjoyed their stay at the Best Western. The construction didn't bother them. Nor did the fact that the workmen accidently set off the fire alarm. Their only complaint was it was hard naviagating that main drag in Keene (Route 9/Route 10) whatever because of all the congestion and the fact that they had rotaries rather than traffic lights.

Did you drive a car there?  That might be why - most of the in-city type hotels charge extra for parking.

you...have...got...to..be...kidding..me!!!!!:hurt:

ugh, it makes it look even cheaper looking, no sense of design what so ever, unbelievable.

This makes me glad that my Super 8 is becoming a Days Inn, they have a Days Inn logo on a tarp on the front entrance so that's what I'm assuming what will happen.

The new Days Inn logo looks so pretty compared to this one:bigsmile:
