The desk clerk, Brittany, could not find reservations in our name, in our host’s name or in the name of the church that had invited me to speak that weekend.
Not only had reservations been made, a representative of the church had stopped by the hotel that very morning to make certain we were welcomed with a Fruit Basket and Bouquet of Flowers.
After several failed attempts, we checked in to a room and called our hosts to tell them that the Holiday Inn Express had no reservations for us and that they should find out what happened so that they would not be billed when we had charged the room we got to our credit card.
Our hosts called the Holiday Inn Express to get the matter clarified and about fifteen minutes later Brittany showed up with our Flower Bouquet and Fruit Basket.
Subsequently, Manager Robert Martin lied to me saying the church had made the reservation for the following week. Really? With flowers and fresh fruit? When I told him I knew he was lying, he invited me to stay elsewhere. We will and that's no lie.
