    Very clean!

    I was happy with how clean the room was considering where it was located. Nothing fancy but a nice clean and comfortable room!

    Nice hotel. Close to the expressway. A little run down but very clean. Bed and linens were super comfortable.

    Decent Stay/Cold water pool

    Pool was cold. Only a Grab and go breakfast but probably because of Covid. Pool you didn't have to reserve which was nice. Staff was nice. There wasn't a remote for tv in our room, but we didn't get a chance to watch much tv anyways. It was pretty warm/hot/stuffy in the hallways, but AC in our room worked just fine. For the price paid, it served its purpose.

    Weekend stay

    Hotel sign and online info states “hot breakfast” the only hot item offered was coffee. There were granola bars, a few fresh fruit options, and muffins. All chairs were left stacked on tables and the lights were left off. My husband asks a lady about the hot breakfast she snapped “Covid!” When he asked about the hot breakfast sign out front she explained that “Wyndham doesn’t allow it” and she “couldn’t change the rules.” The first night we were in pool area with our daughter, pool closes at 10pm. First desk clerk comes in at 9:50 and yells “pools closed!” and immediately shuts the lights off on us while we were trying to gather our things. We did go to front desk and ask for extra pillows, the same girl that shut lights on us just sat there but the gentleman warmly greeted us and got the pillows & cases for us.

    Don’t bother.

    The lobby was ok. Staff seemed annoyed by my presence. The room smelled like cigarettes. Only half of the room was air conditioned, and even the halls were warm. Fold out sucked but that’s sort of par for the course. Oh let’s talk about “breakfast”. A muffin or yogurt. OH THE CHOICES. I paid way too much for this much disappointment.

    Underwhelming for the price

    It was very no frills for the price. The breakfast was really sparse. The staff was efficient but not welcoming or warm. The pool area had no towels both Saturday evening and Sunday morning despite a shelf and basket for towels in the pool area. On Sunday around 11 am as I was packing, I had the do not disturb hanger on the door. A man came and knocked on the door and when I answered said, “are you leaving?” And tapped his wristwatch. I don’t know if checkout was at 11 or 12, but never have had any hotel treat me that way. Also, I would have known when checkout was if the night staff had been thoughtful enough to give me a run-down on ANYTHING, which they did not, other than point me and my kids towards our rooms.

    We stayed during the week. It was perfect for what we needed. I wish the open breakfast was back. Will stay again.
