Not fancy by any stretch so I guess the bad reviews are from folks that expect room service. There are working on certain things in bits and pieces. Our room had new carpet, fresh paint - comfortable bed... wish the pillows were a bit fluffier. Staff was ok but the dark haired lady was like card board. I with the...

The last time we stayed at this hotel it was a LaQuinta. When Days Inn took it over, the property was in the process of getting a room by room make over. I guess from all the bad reviews since then it took awhile for them to get it all done, including a new staff etc. We decided to stop...

Stayed here three nights over the New Year's holiday. All I can say is that this hotel is tired....and it's in need of new management, friendly staff, good housekeeping, and maintenance. The windows were very dirty, the upholstery was badly stained, the faucet in the bathtub leaked, and the carpet needed a good cleaning. When we arrived I had to...

Arrived sick with a stomach problem and the neighbors and their screaming children didn't make it any better. Complained to the front desk but it didn't help. It was what it was and it was only for one night thank goodness. The overall experience based on the fact you could hear everything through the poorly insulated walls wasn't an experience...

DO NOT stay here! Horrible stay and even though I was moved to another room after my roach invasion, even in the bed the staff and regional manager were no help in the end. It's sad to say that this is a bad reflection on the Wyndham Rewards program, which is not their fault. They sent me a refund check...

The first room we were given at check-in had a door that wouldn't stay closed and within 5 minutes of calling the desk, we were being given a new room that was fine. It is an older hotel, but it looks like it's been recently updated. The location is great, and we had absolutely no complaints. We got to know...

We were fortunate to get a last minute reservation during Shrimpfest. However when we checked into our room at 6 pm it had not been cleaned. They did put us in a different room. It had mold on the shower curtain. The furniture and carpet were dirty and stained. The air conditioner did a fair job. The desk person was...
