First off, I called and asked about the neighborhood before booking, or I would nave never taken my daughter and niece to this run down area with bags of garbage on the streets. We did early ck-in, they took our bags to be held. Went out to spend the day in the city, came back at 11:40 PM to have our bags sitting at the counter and person at the desk tell me we no longer have a room due to a "flood".Long story short, there was no place to go, and he saw we were not going to leave, & around 1A M, it was a miracle, not one but 2 rooms appeared! He also told me "Lady, I don't have to do anything for you."Plus he also said when we finally got a room, that now he has to turn someone else away, when At 2AM! Another worker told me there was a big concert not far away. I was using my Choice Points, so my take is he wasn't making money on me and he could sell my room to someone else. Ended up cut the trip short, left in the morning because couldn't count on another night there. Plus the window air conditioner was loud and I was up all night. Horrible, nasty, scary people to turn 3 women away at midnight. I will commend the Comfort Inn for returning my points to me but that idiot should lose his job.
