Terrible staff, the last night one guess was outside of my room in front off the pool with tue music very loud from 12:00 am until 4:00 am. I called several times to the front desk I they said don’t have anybody can go there to solvent the problem because they can’t leave the front desk. Unbelievable

It has an older look on the outside but the rooms were great. Clean and updated. Breakfast was just grab and go. We were just passing through but I’d stay there again.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Walked into the room all we could smell was mold. The ceiling was covered in mold. Hardly any bathroom toiletries. One barrel in the room with no bag in it. The mattress was terrible. The pillows hard as a rock. The head board had a hole in it. Couldn’t get out of there fast enough. I will say the staff was friendly and welcoming. Not there fault the place was a pit. Wyndham should be ashamed to have their name connected to this place. I thought a Wyndham property would be much better than this.

The room was clean except for the floor was dirty. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Only had coffee and danish. The juice was watered down and tasteless. I feel the last question in this survey is very bias, prejudical and unprofessional.
