First off, I always try to check the hotel's website to look at the rooms etc. The website only showed me one picture of an okay looking room. I figured it looked fine for what i needed. I had a budget. I called to reserve a room for one night. He took my credit card information, and gave me a confirmation number. It would have been $54 for one room with a king bed. The person that would be staying the night called me, and said the place was horrible! It was dirty, and it looked as if people lived there, or rented for long periods of time. His exact words were "It is ghetto!" The person staying is not all that picky, as long as he has a comfortable place to sleep, he's fine. However, he said the conditions were so bad that he would not be able to stay. I've paid less than $54 for other places that were much nicer and acceptable. I called the hotel to cancel the reservation, and the front desk person said there would be a cancellation fee! I asked why, and he stated there is a difference between booking a room and reserving a room, and they charge them a fee to process the transaction. I don't know about anyone else, but everytime i reserve a hotel i have until like 6p the SAME DAY to cancel with no fee! I was like, " Are you kidding me?!" If that was the case he should have made me aware of that before even "booking" the room. Which i did not know he did. I asked to speak with the manager, and he said he was the only one at the front desk. I had to ask him like three times if i could talk to a manager, or what his name was. He hesitated, and didnt want to give me an answer. He finally said the manager's name cause apparently he wasn't there at the moment, which i think he may have made up. I am going to call again to speak to whoever CJ is?! They can't run a business like that. Charging people for inadequitely running their business. Unprofessional people, lousy website, and even more of a lousy place. Note to the wise, if they can't afford a decent website to show thier accomodations, don't bother! I could not imagine who would stay there!! URGH!
