They are trying hard and have all the pieces but fail

This hotel has a feeling and look from about 30 years ago. It has pleasant décor in the lobby, an OK restaurant, room service (most of my dishes were not something I would order again but I got full). The room was very dark, only 4 little halogen spotlights. The comforter was one of those from several years ago, big and heavy and inside the sheets. Way to hot and heavy for Texas in my opinion and kept coming apart. The pillows were pathetic little things, I fought them all night trying to get them to support my head. The room phone's handset did not work, I could only make calls using the speakerphone. I reported it 3 times and it still was not working when I left. Can't really tell if it was clean because it was so dark but my feet did feel something sticky on the carpet. The front desk staff was not particularly friendly, sort of like "ok I will wait on you and be efficient but I really have some place I would rather be." I could go on and on, I stayed in the Courtyard by Marriott a couple of blocks away last week and it was simply sublime. SXSW and the Rodeo were in town and ALL the hotels were booked up --- I can see why I was still able to get a room at this Wyndham. Hopefully never again. Not HORRIBLE, just not good.

A few problems

I had trouble with the clock radio; couldn't get it to play. Desk clerk dispatched staff to deal with it and they were very friendly, took awhile to discover it was unplugged. (Battery operation made that difficult to discern.) They told me it was a new model they had just put in the rooms, so they weren't familiar with it. Brought in an older model because the new one wasn't very loud. Curtain was difficult to operate. TV had no kind of channel guide. Bartender at the hotel bar was doing the best he could and very friendly but very overworked, having to tend bar and bring in dishes from the restaurant, so it took about ten minutes for him to get to me the first time. The quesadillas I had at the bar were delicious, top-notch, maybe the best I've ever had.

Pretty average

Not bad, nothing out of the ordinary. Room was clean, didn't have many problems except for the restaurant - both mornings I ate there, I could distinctly taste some sort of chemical in both my glass of OJ and water. Couldn't tell if it was soap or what. I could not finish my water.

Great hotel, location could be better.

Hotel staff were very nice and the room was very comfortable. The location was a little off-putting. There is a side gate accessible via the feeder (or frontage) road that is closed at 10:00 PM. It would be nice if it was open 24/7.

Very helpful staff but dingy hallway carpet.

On arrival late at night, the evening crew man kinda rub me the wrong way. But the day crew staff were all very friendly and very helpful. On my check out morning, my rental car battery went dead since I forgot to turn off the headlight the night before. I was worried being late for my seminar but the front desk ladies were quick and the gentleman they called to jump start the car was quicker than the AAA guy I called. Kudos to them. I came back to the hotel in th afternoon on my way to the airport that day after realizing I left my running shoes in the room. Same front desk ladies to the rescue, got my shoes and I did not miss my flight. My only critique was that the hallway carpet was dingy, lots of spots, not smelly though which is good. They allow pets in the hotel, so I'm guessing it's the animals fault on most of them.

THIEVES ON OUR WEDDING NIGHT!!!

We had our wedding here 4/21/13 and it started out rocky. When I arrived the coordinator wasn't there. When she did show up she had something else on her agenda... Like showing rental spaces to other folks and completely ignoring customers who'd already paid IN FULL. Guest were already arriving and NOTHING was set up. Not the center pieces, not the arch, NOTHING. After having to get a little snappy with her she finally got things moving. At this point I only had 45 minutes to get ready for my very own wedding. I ran upstairs to our room and quickly got ready and made myself have a great ceremony despite what had just happened. When it was time for the reception they started the food service 30 minutes late!! That is unacceptable to me, is this the 1st wedding you all have held??Anyways we went on to have a great reception with NO help from the Wyndham. After the reception ends I go up to the room to pay my DJ and photographer and there is $300 cash stolen out of my wallet!! My husband goes to tell the front desk with atm receipts in hand explaining what happened and they send someone to do a "key scan" Sure enough no scans in the room except room service. Not even myself (the only one with a key) could get in the room cause my key somehow got deactivated. The front desk manager Dennis was a complete jerk and didn't seem to care at all. The front desk wouldn't give us corporates number util we threatened legal action. I called the corporate number and was pretty much told immediately well there's nothing they could do. Its unreal to think someone would do this to a couple on their wedding night. Its even worse knowing we shelled out thousands of dollars at this place and they treated us like we were nothing to them. They never apologized or anything. We had atm receipts proving everything and the key scan proved it all. No was was in that room except room service!!! Please save your self the headache and DO NOT HAVE YOUR WEDDING HERE!!

Flip Flops

I usually rate the comfort of a room by whether or not I have to wear flip flops to keep my feet clean. The rating is flip flops all the time, flip flops only needed in the bathroom, or flip flops not needed. This was a flip flops ALL THE TIME location.
