I rented this "Inn" through Expedia. I get to the "Inn" and it turns out its this motel in a bad neighborhood (i know its bad because there were like 10 police cars in the same street, i bet it has something to do with the people there.) My husband and I leave our children in the car to check in, but when ringing the receptionist bell no one came. Before even getting out of the car my children were scared to tears. I couldn't let my children stay there. The "lobby" was completely dirty and the motel had an inconvenient parking lot. My family and I had to go searching for an actual "Inn" or hotel. We checked a bunch of hotels and "Inns" they were average, but most were full because of spring break related trips. One we went to was way to expensive for 1 night. Another had only smoking rooms, which I couldn't accept because my daughter had problems breathing around smoke. Me and my husband even went in to the room and it smelled terrible. "I can barely breath in here with you two sitting there! And you two aren't even't smokers!" My daughter says after getting in the car. We finally found a real Inn, but it cost us $163 for one night! My son began arguing over the phone with Expedia demanding a refund. The Expedia representative said they would call the motel manager but the said he wouldn't be there to the next day (March 11.) So we call that day and what a coincidence that they say he cant be there 'til the upcoming Wednesday. That Wednesday my son will call Expedia again and the manager. On the window it said NO REFUNDS, but i don't care! I'm getting my money back whether they like it or not! We didn't even stay there. I really hope we get our money because if not it'll be about $237 down the toilet in one night. My son even told Expedia that if we don't get our money we will never rent through Expedia ever again.
