We paid 100 $/ night and got - stinky room, no wi-fi, broken hairdryer, drunk neighbors, who partied all night and terrible breakfast. Never again, please skip this place if possible. Btw - staff was kindly, trying to help with some misunderstandings..

Disappointed at the very beginning with the non greeting. A smoking room without an ashtray. Locked out after getting breakfast at 6:30 am. Cigarette burns on the blankets.

Amenities onsite are good wifi, guest laundry, seasonal pool and hot tub. Nice warp discount and Wyndham Rewards. A very adequate and very economical place to stay. Hopefully, more modern tv's...
