1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

My kids and I travel a lot and we try and use Wyndham hotels. This hotel was disgusting in so many ways. I was not expecting a 5 star but did have basic requirements. The ac did not work, the floor was disgusting, I think the person next to us lived there and was hanging out all night. The 1st room we got the lock did not work. I was really gross. Like I said we travel a lot but this was bad. I have never written a review before but felt I should let people know about this one,

Room Tip: I would put a negative on cleaning if I could

We were tired and ready to stop for the night. Not a bad place if you are passing through and although it was close to the interstate you did not hear very much noise. Room was very small but it was sufficient for 2 people. Bathroom must have been remodeled, very nice. Personell very friendly. Not disappointed considering the price. Would stop again.
