Since this trip was prepurchased for me by family, I didn't think to come and check the reviews from this site. Let me give you a timeline:
Check in at 3:45PM- we were given a room on the 5th floor initially. To say that this room was dirty is an understatement. We walked in and immediately saw two roaches on the floor and no carpet in the room. Wife went into the bathroom and said there is no way she will stay here. I went to check why: The towels were obviously used and just refolded, there was mold EVERYWHERE, the toilet was dirty and the tub didn't even look like it was sealed. The tiles on the floor were disgusting to look at.
We went back to the front desk and were told that for $50/night we could upgrade to a "renovated" room. We went to check this room out, when we went up- there was a cute older maid cleaning the room. Thinking nothing of it since the door was closed, we left our stuff upstairs and went down to let the front desk know we would take that room. As we were coming back from the desk- the maid was rushing out, we found out 10 minutes later that my wifes brand new iphone was missing. Now I'm not saying that the maid stole it- but who else could it have been? It was definitely there when we left.
Let's talk about the "renovated room". By renovation, I think they mean that half the room had cheap carpet in it and there was a chair in the room to sit on for the desk. The bathroom tile was different but was still MOLDY, the towels AGAIN had hair on them, and the sheets on the bed had BLOOD on them. WTF?
Stay away from this place people- I can't believe that Wyndham picked this place up. Makes me sick.
