The front desk was fine at first. We didnt know they offered jacuzzis in certain rooms when we checked in and when we found out two hours later we asked to upgrade just for fun thinking it shouldnt be a problem. We initially paid $61 and the room we wanted to move to was $94. No big deal, right? Apparently they wanted us to pay a $100 on top of the $61 we already paid because our room will need to be cleaned. We took off the top cover to sit on the bed, thats it. The blanket under the top cover had two red stains on it.

Ice machine was broken. When we walked down the hall to get to the stairs and up to our room the door to the utility closet was open and remained open for the remainder of the day and night. A bunch of rooms had doors wide open for no apparent reason. A certain part of the first floor hallway smelled like weed. Second floor we passed a guy with no shirt on in his doorway watching us walk down the hallway. Creeped me out.
There was an African-American kid maybe 9 or 10 with a vaccum. Definitely not a family member of the staff.

I sent pictures to Wyndham Customer Care of only part of what we experienced, it was HORRIBLE! We had a very moldy shower curtain, green marker and nasty stains on the walls, stained fabric chair in the room, unvacuumed carpet, hard to take pictures of our shoes sticking to the bathroom floor, the room smelled like urine, the bathroom light AND outlet did not work, the ice machine was out of order (which I read in alot of reviews about and still isn't working), window lock is gone, outside side entrance does not even require your room key to enter (security and lock broke), juice machine for continental breakfast broke (so the orange juice was super warm), walls were extremely filthy, hair on bedding and bathroom floor, spider and his web and other gross things on the bathroom floor, housekeeping made one bed not the other and cleaned nothing or throw boxes away, the finish on the desk and dresser was terrible and the desk had a big crack in the top, there was some kind of pink guck behind the toilet also.

This hotel is horrible!!!! I would NEVER recommend ANYONE to stay here. I had reservations on a Saturday, checked into the hotel, and handed the front desk my hotel room keys within 15 minutes to check-out. They have refused to return my money.
The entire hotel smells disgusting. The staff is down right rude. The outside of the hotel looks like scum and the room was even worse. The pictures you see online are obviously from when the hotel was actually maintained, possibly even from when it was built.

Okay, I didn't expect 5 stars, but a half moon would have been nice. From a dingy lobby to a breakfast that rivals those served in county jails, this place needs torn down.
Fights in the hallways, yelling and screaming at all hours I kept my Glock bedside. Stay somewhere else...hopefully this place will go away
