I liked the night watch. He was nice. Procedure was a little annoying and long, though. Room had holes in the carpet, vent hanging off the ceiling and it seemed small (smaller then the last hotel we stayed in with same furniture anyway,) but they had nice pillows and extra ones and better beding. The pool was closed. So sad too, cause that's why I picked that hotel. After 16 hours of driving I had looked forward to gently stretching my muscles and soaking my achy muscles. Breakfast was good, but considering there were two hours left for breakfast and they were pretty much out of gravy it felt like a rip off for breakfast.

Room smelled old n musty. Last renter's underwear left behind bathroom door; leaves me to believe the bathroom wasn't cleaned properly. Easy chair was too wobbly to sit in. Bathroom door didn't close, like the door is too big for the frame. The room was shared so this was most inconvenient! Sheets were clean. Under beds were nasty. Staff were very friendly.

Very clean room and was able to check in early as we got to town before we went over for our first baseball game (state tournament) so that helped a lot. Close to the stadium for us also. We enjoyed the breakfast both days. Very nice stay and our Campus High School team won first in the State Tournament so made it even nicer as we had a grandson pitching and a son coaching the team.

Sadly, this property is in dire need of updating if they’re going to carry the Wyndham name. Newly painted exterior but soffits/eaves falling. Room fixtures were caked w/ tar. No ionizer in use for smoking rooms (we got one despite not being smokers nor requesting). The pillow-top had seen better days and the fitted sheet popped off as it wasn’t a deep-fitted sheet. Cigarette holes in the bedding. We had to buy Febreze & Glade plug-in just so we could breathe. There was a flying roach on the black-out curtain. No sheer curtain to allow light in. The owners/management need to HIRE housekeeping instead of doing it themselves.

Cant judge a book by it's cover

Location: Good location
From the outside it looks like a nice hotel but a closer look, it was disappointing at best. The staff was nice and the out side looks decent, but that is where it all ends. The beds are very uncomfortable. The room looks like it has seen lots of abuse and patch job is very shoddy. Furniture is falling apart and in need of replacement. Carpet is old and padding is bulging in spots. Heater didn't work well either.

Choose another hotel

Pros: Decent location
Cons: Fix things falling apart and work on friendliness of staff
My first encounter was with the front desk person who made no effort to be pleasant. We then walked into our room which was fairly clean but in disrepair. It was also apparent the pool had not been cleaned in some time...therefore, I did not go in. I would not recommend this hotel as there are many others available. For $75 it was not even worth that!

Clean and comfortable. Very good for the price.

On a trip driving out west, I stayed at this motel on my way out. I left my iPad in the room accidentally. They had it waiting for me on my return stay two weeks later. Nice to know there are good, honest people around!

Rooms were clean just not user friendly.

The room was comfortable but it was not really user friendly. The light to the bathroom was behind the door. There was not light in the washroom and the only plugins available were being used. Literally had to unplug the refrigerator to use the microwave. The bed was comfortable though.

Okay for one night.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything. Don't you have people that every go around and check the conditions of your hotels? The bathroom was pitiful.
The rollaway bed was so bad no one could sleep on it. Room is badly needing some maintenance.
