Reviewed 27 August 2017

so after driving 11 hours i arrived at this place to the smell of very strong paint or stain at 5pm, check in was 3pm. i was told my room wasnt made and wouldnt be ready until 530 (after a quick check by receptionist) which i thought to myself, "what if i arrived at 3pm, the paid-for check-in time?" as i waited for her return, i noticed 2 small cans of stain sitting within 12" of me on the counter...the obvious evidence of the smell. when she returned i was asked to come back so i asked about a restroom which i was told to no public restroom, go to the mcdonalad's next door...gee, thanks. once in the room, i found it very spacious, my view was of the drive thru line of mcdonalds, nice :) i could smell the fries. room was less than stellar, very basic. there might have been a tiny bit of mold in the shower but not sure, i didnt want to inspect it. toilet paper holder was on the opposite wall 32" away, not convenient...there was a small fridge and microwave in the room, didnt use it. i only stayed one night but wish i stayed elsewhere. i would rather pay a more $ for a better motel, i wont be staying here again. if i was offered anything for the inconvenience besides an apology, i may have put 3 stars :|

Started with a room switch from the one I booked, asked for at least a queen and was given a double bed, very old and wore out and not a great sleep...they blamed the room change on Wyndham, this place is pretty old and needs help. Very noisy, old style slamming doors, no sound proofing in sealing and when someone walked it sounded like stomping. Water pressure was really weak, almost no water in sink, shower was pretty disappointing.

We booked a non-smoking room and the room reeked of smoke. All the front desk could do is give us a bottle of deodorizer which didn't make the room smell better. There was hair on the sheets and in the bathtub. The pillow cases were stained yellow and the lighting was very poor, I expect so you can't see how dirty the room really is.
