    Not a 3 star hotel!!!

    The generalities of this hotel are OK, but the room itself is basically a no--frills discount hotel. With the name Wyndham and a 3 star rating I expected better. The hotel is old and yes it is renovated somewhat. However the renovation could be a bit better and cozier - just laminate hardward floors, no area rugs, no pictures on the wall. Just felt very sterile... bed was very comfortable. It is two blocks off the strip but far away from most of the activity, would much rather be off the strip about 3 blocks down, this is almost at the end.

    A Weekend Getaway

    The best thing about this property was the location. Located behind the village, it is an easy walk for morning pancakes and the candy kitchen. The rooms look similar to the pictures posted. This is an old property that has been remolded. There is no carpet in the rooms which I feel is cleaner, however the floor covering was very dark. A dark floor and low wattage bulbs produced a poorly lit room. There was a ceramic tile in front of the sink and in the bathroom. Our ceramic tile looked dingy. I could not tell if it was dirty or just discolored from wear. However I would suggest packing house shoes or flip flops for the room. The sheets were clean and the bed was well made. The mattress was a spring (not foam) and was pretty comfortable. There is still no breakfast at the property. The tub popped as you changed positions during your shower. Perhaps a thin tub or a poorly installed tub placed over the original during renovation. The shower head produced a decent flow and the water temperature was easy to control. There was plenty of hot water. Overall, I would stay again in this property if the price was competitive (mainly for the location).

    I am disabled and requested a handicap accessible room. I called twice in advance of our arrival to confirm that there was a handicap room available and was told that they had one and that it was assigned to me. Well folks, putting a shower chair next to the bathtub and having a chair height toilet does NOT make a room accessible. There were no bars in the bathroom around the toilet and to make matters worse the toilet was in the middle of the room without even a sink cabinet to help me pull myself up. My poor husband had to get up in the middle of the night to help me on and off the toilet FRUSTRATION!! Other than that the location was great and the bed was comfortable with really quality sheets!

    Uncomfortable beds

    The room was very nice and well maintained, although the beds were very uncomfortable.

    Close to fun!

    We were very lucky to find such a nice motel so close to all the activities. It was comfortable and we would definitely stay again.

    Not the best

    The office chair was broken. They did not replace it. Told us there were no others. Then why leave it ? Found hairs in the bathroom. Dusty. Mirror had streaks. Abs windows dirty.
