Despite my requests not to be sent to this hotel while on a business trip ever again, I was sent there afterall :( Nothing changed!!!
There was actually a set of dishes and cutlery laying across the floor right in front of my room door when I arrived, so that did not bode well. It was still there in the morning and I found it piled back up against the side of my entry again the next evening after I returned from work! What is up with that? Housekeeping not on contract to pick up items from room service's department or something? I do not understand why they were placed against my door 24 hours later instead of removed.
My room was even dirtier than the last room, if that is even possible. But this time I remembered to take photos. I bent down with a wash cloth as soon as I arrived and wiped ONE small area of the bathroom floor, and the cloth came away dirty with ease. The heater was taped to the wall, there was some sort of stain on the room wall that looked like dried blood, and it came away easily when I wiped it, and again the same problems with checking in.
I have stayed at a lot of Best Westerns for work, and this one always wants to take MY credit card information, claiming it is Best Western policy. However, when I have stayed at another Best Western in Calgary, they do not ask for my credit card info because it is set up through work. I have so much trouble verbally conversing with the staff at Village Park Inn, I do not want to give them my own details in case the room ends up booked on my card too somehow. I do not understand why there are so many problems here. Myself and two coworkers ended up calling our head office (again) to be transferred to another hotel. Thankfully we got to go back the the BW Center Inn and had no problems there at all.
I see a lot of reviews about the cleanliness of this hotel, but I suggest you try wiping a few things down to be sure. It may look clean, but twice this fall I have stayed there and the bathroom floor was vile on my first day there (so it was not me in any way).
