arrived with request of handicap room... rapid check in & on to room == desk clerk even came with me to UNLOAD!! WOW! YES! GREAT STAFF!!! once in the room... immediately i noticed there was NO fridge or microwave as advertised??? clerk stated she could move me or i could wait until morning & maintenance would bring it.... decided to wait until morning. unpacked... got undressed... ready to relax & go to bed. COULDNT FIND REMOTE TO TV??? called desk & asked if it maybe was kept where i couldnt seem to find it? she stated NO! should be right there??? next thing a knock on the door.... the other desk clerk comes in & announces YOU ARE MOVING! i will move EVERYTHING for you.... i have already been to the room & turned up the heat and checked to make sure EVERYTHING is there! so TWO DOORS down we go!! exactly as she said... she moved EVERY SINGLE ITEM, except me & my purse!
third day in that 2nd room....(you guessed it... just as my ONLY FAVORITE show was coming on!) the TV went out!!! UGH! UGH! UGH! the clerk called maintenance even tho it was 8pm on a sunday night.... she then told me he would be right up from home... again: GREAT STAFF! he worked & worked... changed the cable box... then changed out the TV... then called cable company... they said they wouldnt come out and change their part until morning! by this time my show was of course OVER! he then came back & said they were moving me to the next room as the TV was fine there! i just broke down crying! i had NO DESIRE to be moved AGAIN!!! so i opted to stay there with NO TV... i didnt care to see anything else anyway... the next morning Cable was there by 9am & had it up and working within 30min. so, as the facility goes... it really has problems!! but, you will just NEVER find nicer more helpful willing to please staff anywhere!!! 2 staff even suggested i should have been given a night free possibly for the inconvenience we suffered! but, the manager nor owner were upfront about that!! IMAGINE THAT?? and since we will never need a room in Springfield, Mo, to comp us a night in the future would have been futile! the noise level at this facility is HIGH! anyone above you... can be heard EVERY STEP and some things can even be heard from the rooms next door.... we unfortunately had a child above us that jumped & ran & squealed much more than an average normal child!!! but, she was in bed at night before we were... so it never disturbed our sleep! in fact none of the noises disturbed sleep... they were all during AWAKE hours!
