It was obviously a motel rented to local residents who hung out in the parking lot. There were cars up in blocks in the parking lot. The hall smelled like marijuana and the room had a weird smell like an air freshener was used to mask another odor. We did not feel safe and worried about our car overnight. There were people yellibg and talking loudly overnight along with them slamming doors. The wallpaper in the hall was ripped and there was a large hole in the carpet in the hall. You would think with the name "Wyndham" attached to a hotel it would be nicer. Would NEVER stay there again or recommend this place.

We checked in and got to our room to find a roach crawling over our bed onto the floor. Our other room had more roaches so we ended up leaving and drove 3.5 hrs home.

Broken doors, no locks on doors. Broken glass all over. This was an unsafe hotel. My family and I feared we were going to be mugged during our stay here.

This was my first time in the area, so I wasn't sure where the best area to stay would be. This wasn't it! This hotel was pretty terrible. We ended up leaving after two nights and found another hotel for the rest of our vacation. Here are some of the issues we had: 1. No breakfast as advertised. 2. At 3am someone tried very hard to enter one of our rooms. It was very frightening. 3. The showers in both rooms were terrible. One was so plugged up you had to shower quickly. The other had a tiny shower curtain that did not hold water in so it got everywhere. 4. We got a non-smoking room. By the smell I would say the hotel doesn't really have non-smoking rooms. 5. There seemed to be a loud party going on in the middle of the night... sounded like people playing live instruments above our room. 6. The room was falling apart: wallpaper peeling, drawer handles broken, tv remote had no back, etc. 7. The breaking point was when we saw the homeless looking person sleeping on the sidewalk leading to our rooms. DO NOT stay here. Not family friendly!!
