Hotel Savings for Memorial Day Weekend

Have you ever stayed at a Wyndham Hotel Group place before on vacation or maybe on a work trip? We did recently and were very pleased with our entire experience. It was for work/pleasure and from the hostess making us a fresh pot of coffee to our room being extremely comfortable; it was definitely a place we plan to stay again.

If you stay 3 nights or more at a Wingate by Wyndham or Ramada, you will receive 20% off your stay. This is perfect for Memorial Day Weekend! Leave Friday and stay Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night; returning Monday.
