“WORST Place Ever - Completely Corrupt”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

I have stayed here several times by now, giving the benefit of the doubt because I like the location of the place.
On various occasions, I had items stolen from the room, was cheated on the pricing, was lied to, was placed under duress by the greedy management - they sucked and are totally not reasonable. Even after I signed the contract, they just upped the price - totally corrupt, and then tried to force me to stay threatening me with the Police - ridiculous.
Instead, we stayed at Volker's on Terrace Close - SO much better.
