We booked our reservation through "Groupon" and ensured our reservation was still available 3 days before the actual trip and they confirmed everything. However, upon our arrival, they could not find our booking and we had to spend a few minutes at the desk to sort out the ball drop. Fortunately, there was someone on hand to bring the ball back in play.
Then came the a-la-cart moment; a new experience with a hotel for me, we had to pay for the fridge, microwave and Internet access in the rooms, the Wi-Fi I don't know if this is the norm or it’s because they just bought the place and using this form of methodology to recuperate the expenses.
The breakfast bar is the best in all my thirty-plus years in the hotel and motel accommodation, very great experience. For dinner meals please make sure you bring a lot of money and a very small appetite, the food they offer is very small, just walk down the alley to the River-Walk for the Tex-Mex experience.
The rooms are decent under the current circumstances, they promised a better decor and housekeeping in the future. The pool, the gym and the massage on the third floor are some of the great services they offer, if you have phobia to small spaces do not go into the massage room; management need to relocate for better experience. The masseuse, and her staff are very experience but the location is very small.
Overall, under the current circumstances, they are trying their best to make best of a bad situation. You see, the Wyndham Resort Corporation recovered the hotel from the former “Crown Plaza” when they went bankrupt.
They also have sales people on hand to recruit you for their Resort Vacation Club membership
