and it was the little things--nothing major, mind you--that can be easily corrected and the fact that they are not worry me b/c if the management does not care about those little things then it makes you wonder about how focused they are on everything else. There were weeds growing through cracks in the sidewalk and those weeds had, apparently, been there for a while and we had to step across a casually curled hose too near the entrance than it should have been. There was a lot of litter in the parking lot that should have been cleaned. The room was nice enough w/ high ceilings and nice amenities but the chair/hassock had a couple of stains and when moved we found a pair of socks between them which meant no one had bothered to move furniture when cleaning--again little things. The air-conditioner was not the most efficient as things always seemed "stuffy"; the room was cool enough just not real comfortable. I did not use it but noticed the whirlpool tub was "out of order" as were several of the vending machines (as noted in a review fr/ a couple of months ago) and one would think those would have been repaired by now--yes, little things. The room doors are not flush w/ the floor so you can hear anything happening in the hallway but that is not exclusive to this hotel (& is a gripe w/ lots of properties).
The people were about as nice as could be. The towels were plush and we had plenty. The beds were comfortable and came w/ lots of pillows. I do have an issue w/ one cup coffee makers b/c it is not very convenient when trying to make coffee for two but there was coffee in the breakfast area so that is a minor complaint.
As for breakfast--it is nothing special but nothing terrible--assorted juices, fresh fruits, bagels, muffins, scrambled eggs, "sausage" gravy, sausages, "make your own" waffles, assorted cereals, milk, along w/ the usual condiments. We did get to breakfast rather late (just after 9.00 and things close at 9.30) so certain items were lacking but it was not awful--just not great.
As a matter of fact breakfast kind of summed the entire hotel: nothing special but nothing too terrible and certain things were lacking but not awful---just not great (& one would hope for better fr/ a Wyndham).
