This is a typical nice Wyndham property to stay at. We are owners and have stayed at several different properties of theirs in the USA and have found this to be fairly true all over. Room was clean with all the amenities (Would have been VERY disappointed if I had been a Green Bay or Chicago football fan as they did not get NFL Network on their cable). Bed was very comfortable.
Kudos to Wyndham for their recycling effort!! Finally found a resort that pointed out the trash is first processed for recyclables in the community, thus we knew we could toss our cans and plastic bottles and know they would not end in the local landfill.
Also enjoyed not having to go to the other side of the check-in floor - they don't exactly have the space, since checkin is shared with the Wilderness Lodge folks - to "get your parking pass" (aka, get you to sign up for a timeshare meeting/update/survey). With only 3 days in the area, we didn't have the time or desire to waste time on this.
One oddity was no phone in the bedroom. With the proliferation of cell phones today, however, I don't see it as a problem and a great way to cut costs. Plus when the phone in the kitchen rang sometime after 8 am on two days (probably the timeshare update people since they didn't get us at checkin), it was nice to have only heard it in the distance.
One disappointment - we booked it thinking we could enjoy the waterpark, especially in mid-September when the weather was still warm. Upon checkin we found that the outdoor waterpark is only open Fri-Sat-Sun and we were staying Monday thru Thursday. Most of the indoor waterpark is geared for kids with the wave pool, surf area, kiddie pool and activity pool. We did enjoy the indoor/outdoor hot tub though.
Overall a very enjoyable stay!
