“Hit the right levels for the price point. A solid
I stayed to do the triathlon, proximity to the beach was key. It is a block. Killer location. Check in was easy, although business like, and yes, the front desk is VERY old school. Exposed office type business... not the clean spa like front desk that is the rage. The staff was helpful and got me dialed in. My room was upstairs overlooking the spa. My room was clean, no off smells. fridge clean, bathroom clean, no moldiness... Is this place like AMAZING, with beach views, and 4 star facilities? NO. But it is also not $400 a night. I will stay again next time!

Poor1.0 / 5
Worst experience ever
You would think for $360 you could get a comfortable room with good pillows, comfortable bed, room to move and a TV that worked. Breakfast was horrible with sour apple juice and warm milk. absolutely the worst experience I have ever had. Do not stay here. This gives me a lot of doubt about ever staying at another Wyndham Hotel.

Shady shady shady
We check in the clerk asks me my name I tell him. He has a problem so an older lady comes They have my id and debit card. She's ands me a recite With $335. I told her that my room was prepaid through hotel.com. She starts arguing with me like I'm Lieing. That I booked on expidea and my room was not paid for. So I pull up hotels.com to show her. She said oh your name isn't Shirley. I said no, you have my id and my credit card and its doesn't say my name is Shirley. How could you not notice that? She blames the mistake on the guy and credits my card back. We go to the room and I check my bank and I have a charge for $167 through the debit card they saw. I go back and show her the charge. She starts arguing with me that they didn't charge my card but expidea did. I said no the charge said you did not hotels.com. That I used a different card to book the room online and you saw my debit card. I show her the charge on my account and continued to argue that she didn't charge my card. She even said that hotels.com made the mistake and booked two rooms under my name. Really the amount that was charged was different from the price of the room we got That it was hotels.com charge. I explained to her once again that I didn't use that card through hotels.com. So I called the bank right in front of her. Told the bank that I didn't approve the charge and my bank refunded the card back. She looked so busted. watch your charges people.
