First I wish I could add photos. For approx $200. This place should have spotless or close to it. You had loss of paint in most of the whirlpool. Gaps under the door leading from the bedroom area to the outter door area. The room had to be sprayed with some freshner, that was sprayed while I was in the room. I immediately started sneezing and gagging. The morale of this story is this place is poorly managed and this room should be rated at a f-. And this place is a part of the Wyndham family... I would never stay at this hotel again even if you paid me!!!

This place is not worth staying in. It’s very sketchy. The bathrooms are nasty. If I wasn’t so tired I would have moved on.
