I travel through NW Iowa extensively and frequently make hotel decisions based on which hotel group has the best points incentive. I prefer Choicehotels because there aren't any nicer chains in most of these cities. This time I picked Wyndam reward hotels. That was a mistake this time around. I usually stay at a different hotel in Spencer, but wanted a "Stay 2 times get a gasoline gift card" offer from Wyndham.
This is one of those hotels operated by a middle eastern individual. Hotels like this are usually less than desireable.
This hotel is old and needs updated. The drywall and other features are cracked, have patched holes and look terrible, especially in the bathroom. The mirror in the room is covered with stickers reminding me that I will be fined $100 if I have a dog in my room, if I smoke in the room, checkout is 11:00am and no cooking in the room except with microwave.
He charged my credit card and closed out my charges when I checked in. That was odd.
I stay for business in the area, when I went to my room and couldn't connect to the internet I just about left. I called the office and was told he "was almost full and lots of people on internet, I should try again in 30 minutes." Tis is unacceptable in this day and age. I called 2 hours later, I voiced my concerns about needing to connect to my company's vpn for business. Low and behold, within a minute of complaining I was connected. Not sure the deal here but it was the deal breaker for me, never again will I stay here. I stay away from other nicer hotels because their internet works well but it won't connect to my company's vpn...some security issue with their connection. So this dump is definitely on my Never again list.
I get up to get breakfast....it doesn't start until 7:00am, that's too late, I'll be gone by then.
The TV works but is old tube type model.
