The lobby elevator was being worked on and was not in operation. The garden elevator was working.
I explained to your clerk that my wife had a mobility problem (bad ankle). Stairs are a problem for her. He put us on the 2nd floor at least 50 yds down from the garden elevator, insisting that it was no better for my wife than climbing the stairs at the lobby. There are only 5 steps up to the Garden Elevator from the Ground Floor. There were no rooms available on the first floor due to re-carpeting. HOWEVER - there were rooms available near the garden elevator.
Your clerk also made it clear to me that we would have to pay for our breakfast. The Red Lion in Medford, OR gave us a free breakfast without any problem.
Given the mess created by all of the renovation going on, your organization should have been giving a free breakfast to every guest willing to climb the stairs
I made my reservation via Hotwire - which is the ONLY reason I decided to stay at all. The charge for the room was non-refundable.
There are 3 Best Western motels in the Eureka area. I will go there next time.
I promise not to use Hotwire in Eureka again.
