Back in 1969, Cecil B. Day, on a road trip with his family, was getting fed up with how difficult it was to find clean, affordable lodging—so he decided to open his own hotel chain. He started off with a single Days Inn, on Tybee Island, Georgia, that was so successful he expanded into franchising just two years later. Flash forward to 2022, and there are over 1,500 Days Inn locations on six different continents. The budget chain is now a part of the Wyndham conglomerate.
