Clearly an older hotel that has undergone a few renovations and could use some freshening up. The lodge theme was charming- that's where it ended. If the free breakfast appeals to you, I'd suggest you not base your decision on that or you'll be disappointed. Room was clean (?) but clearly showed its age. The same for pool and hot... More

This lodge themed hotel is kind of like getting locked in Bass Pro after hours and sleeping in their display over night. We checked in to two rooms. #307 and #219 (?). #307 was very well decorated in the lodge theme. #219 was nice but very noisy from the guests above so we changed rooms to #103. This room was... More

Stayed there two nights October 25 and 26. Very impressed with cleanliness of room and efficiency of staff. Breakfast was good and I was impressed that they opened up a conference room to accomodate the breakfast overflow. Staff was professional and responsive. I especially appreciated the free shuttle from the airport! Will definitely stay again.

Our stay at Wildwood was most pleasant. Check-in was smooth and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was comparable to what is offered at Hampton and the complimentary wine/beer in the evening was a nice surprise. We would stay here again if ever in the area.

I had hoped this would be a good experience trying a new hotel because of the great reviews here on Trip Advisor. But I was very disappointed! My biggest peeve was the extremely poor customer service. We were having a hard time sleeping because our room window overlooked the indoor pool, and there was lots of pool noise (the pool... More

We always try to stay here. Hotel was close to my appointment for the next morning. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. Room was clean. Shower was hot and was a walkin shower that was great as I didnt have to climb over a tub. Will stay here again.

If you are looking for a well maintained hotel with an outdoor theme which is carried through the entire hotel, this is the place to stay. The hotel was built in 1996 and is very well maintained. Great pool and hot tub area. Rooms clean and large. Bathrooms are a little dated but very well maintained. Monday through Thursday you... More

Bed was not very comfortable for me. Breakfast was okay, nothing special. They gave us one drink coupon each. If you are thinking the manager reception will be like an Embassy Suites you will be disappointed. Overall, just okay. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating.

The rooms are quiet, clean and the decor is definitely "Up North". Hospitality is displayed by all the team members. The bathroom is spacious and the towels are fluffy. The continental breakfast is healthy and bountiful. Rates are reasonable and book directly on the hotel website.

The service, accommodations, and continental breakfast were excellent. We were staying at Wildwood for the weekend to attend the Kansas State/Iowa State football game. The front staff were extremely helpful in pointing us to a great Mexican restaurant that was within walking distance. The continental breakfast was very nice, from the Belgium waffles to the oatmeal to the hard boiled... More
