Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Link to Nowhere, Shortest Stay Ever."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
In a text welcome from La Quinta I received a link for directions, which ended "arrived" in a private residential neighborhood; no hotel in sight.Using an Internet link I found, I wound up adj to Embassy Suites; no Wyndham in sight. Finally arrived, 45 min wasted drive time. Furious, I took my room key and asked where the room was: was told "159" w/out directions. Got a map w/out mentioning it was upstairs. No sign so I learned "go thru the back lobby, exit side door to outside, double back to outdoor spiral stairway, climb them to 2nd floor. At age 74, not fun. Appearance out back was industrial and very noisy. The room was adequate but poorly air conditioned (80 degr?) with the wall thermostat spackled shut (unpainted). Attempting to gut it out in the heat/humidity, I checked out 30 45 min after checking. Now back home, I got billed for all five days and will need to complain to a 3rd party (Choice.com?) since I learned my booking wasn't with LaQuinta. This experience was the worst in my 51 yrs of business travel.

"Paid too much for a room that was not clean."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This property was supposed to be up to WYNDHAM standards. It was not. I had to take a wet rag and get dirt and trash off the floors. I wiped down the bathroom door and some of the walls due to recent DIRT and GRIME. Hot breakfast was supposed to be included but "THE TRUCK DID NOT RUN" so those of us who asked got a yogurt cup and some coffee for $165+ per night. WORST stay of our trip! We paid half that price in TEXARKANA for a clean, modern Holiday Inn Express with a full hot breakfast, too. BIG MISTAKE. I also asked to be moved. First room was in a sketchy area. Lots of graffiti. Trash was in bags and had not been picked up. I do not recommend this property at all. No tub at all. They just put a second low rise shower unit ON TOP of the old one!

"A Few Simple Attention to Detail"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room was mostly clean and tidy. The popcorn ceilings must go. Need a few more accessible outlets in the rooms such as on the desk for computer and cell phone chargers. On the exterior it appears there was some recent renovations but it appears the painters didn't have drop cloths.

"Could have been better"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The rooms were clean, but could use some updating. We were very upset, that after a long day at Dell's Children's Hospital, we came back to our room and found the door wide open (belongings inside) with a vacuuming crew sucking out the vents. Guys walking in and out of the room. We were then told it would be about another 30 to 45 mins before we could enter room. This was inconsiderate, and an occupied room should not have been done. Will not be staying here again.
