Hotel room wasnt clean, when ask for room service i was informed that they didnt have time to come and that i would have to come up myself then they hung up the phone on me. These are some foreigners who run this property they have no respect for the american.

The non smoking room smelled like a bingo hall. It was marginally clean overall. You get what you pay for but even so this was a little over priced for the quality of room. The service was a bit sketchy... Had to check in & out from an outside window. Made us wonder about the general safety of the area.

Everything about the area, the price, access to activities, neighborhood, ease of travel, proximity to restaurants, shopping, good choice of a place to spend a few days, lock broke on the gym, vending machine didn't work, overall a 5 from me, with the updates and new paint!

Room was ok. Very difficult to understand the receptionist. She spoke very fast with a thick accent. Coffee pot had not been washed after last visitor used it. At check in, the receptionist insisted that the room had NOT been paid for; only reserved. I thought I paid Wyndham when I made the reservation. Who is correct?
