I walked into the lobby of this hotel to make a reservation. It was about 7:00 pm. The entrance was not very bright and there was no one at the front desk. I looked around and sitting in the corner were two people (a man and woman) talking and having a good time together. When I said hello the woman came over to me and asked what I wanted. She was so unprofessional and frankly seemed to be annoyed that I had bothered her. I asked her about the rooms and she provided quick, curt answers to my questions. I told her I would think things over, and then I left.
I was shocked at such a lack of good customer service. They obviously don't care about their clients. The first impression a customer has about a hotel is the front desk, and this hotel blew it big time!! Will never recommend them.
