Room did not have refrigerator even though one was advertized. Breakfast choices were abysmal. Nothing that was not sugary. No bagels. Bad coffee.

Dear guest as I understand you check in late night and you use your credit card for the deposite and that is why you got confused, and we never had any issue like this, all our front desk people are very honest and they have been working here in years. so please do't write staff if you not sure.
