We are taking a ride over Memorial Day weekend and we are stopping in Boonville the first night. Being a holiday weekend, everything was booked, EXCEPT the Days Inn, so I reserved a room. I should have done more research before booking it, because now I know why there were openings. Rated low, complaints made to BBB, dirty, stinks like smoke even in the non smoking rooms, rude staff, etc. For some reason I checked the Comfort Inn again, which is just 1 mile off of the trail and wow, thank you they had 1 room. It is about 1.5 times the price, but I took it. Went to cancel my reservation with the Days Inn, still 10 days ahead of time, and found they had charged my credit card for the full amount and that they refused to give me a refund. They said no refunds for any reason (no show, cancellation, late, emergencies...). Apparently this is why they do that, because if they didn't, they would go out of business. Check out Trip Advisor and the Better Business Bureau to start and that will be enough to convince you to pitch a tent instead of staying there.
