This property was beyond disappointing! I actually wish I could give it less than one star! There were TONS of problems with the facility including: - MOLD in the shower - Dark brown (feces?) stains on the "clean" towels - Water damage behind walls causing drywall damage and "bubbles" in the paint - Holes in walls - "Repairs" which were...

It was a pretty decent place except no pool or hot tub . Then I got home & they had put the bill on a wrong Credit card after asking them to put it on another card. Young unprofessional desk clerks. Also there was a broken step outside. A lawsuit waiting to happen.

I travel a lot and found this hotel to be the worst ever. At $99 a night and being a Wyndham property, I was shocked by experience. First, the front desk handed me the room card with a post-it note attached with the room number written on it. Walking into the room it smelled like dirty carpet mixed with a...

Not as nice looking as depicted online. Check-in was slow, but that was because the guy ahead of me was checking in 9 of his groomsmen, which takes time. Not enough parking for the number of units. Toilet was running the two days we were there. I mentioned it shortly after check-in. No wash cloths 1st day. TV remote didn't...

The room was not cleaned one of the days and the pool area was closed the staff told us it had been closed for a long time and owners didn't care to fix it cause they didn't care about the hotel. I was very disappointed cause I had kids with us.
