I wonder if they've ever asked Wyndham for a rebranding? It's all based on amenities, and not the actual quality of the hotel, which is why Wyndhams can vary a lot based on the individual franchisee. Could be a case where they don't want to offer one thing that would qualify them as a Days. Could also be they don't want the higher expectations that come with a higher tier of branding. Hotel customers can be just the worst, so setting those expectations low and then blowing them away is actually kinda genius.

I'm glad you guys are having good luck with the Super 8's, because the one in our town is a mess. It's a good place to buy meth. I have to go there pretty frequently for business.

Love Super 8! I am kinda Wyndham loyal because they have one of the best hotel rewards programs around. There are also some nice Days Inn's out there. Stayed at a few in Texas when I did a park tour down there. On the flip side I have stayed at some crappy Hilton and Marriott properties so brand has nothing to do with each hotel.
I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life...

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I decided to change my reservations for Phoenix phunfest to this super 8 on the recommendation of this thread. I hope it can live up to the hype.

As long as it's not like the super 8 near kings island, you will be ok.

Nah it's the apparently good one over in danville. Besides I'm going to knoebels so the trip is automatically going to be great.

I have a membership in Hilton (credit card too), Wyndham, and IHG (work for this company). I try to stagger my stays between the brands and I seem to get the most rewards with Wyndham.
