We loved the hotel, it was nicely updated, clean with a fridge and microwave, plus great sit on balcony. It was our anniversary so the desk clerk told us if we signed up for their priority club he could give us a room upgrade at the price of the standard room. He put us in room 701, great room. He scratched out and replaced the price of the room at the lower rate and had me initial the check in receipt, but at check out they tried to charge us the higher rate. Then the desk clerk got the manager and she came out with receipt I had initialed and basically said we changed the amount, that it didn't look like the guy that checked us in handwritting. Please tell me how I could have changed something that was in their possesion not mine. She said we will honor it but will be calling him to check if he did this. That ruined our day and pissed me off. So make sure at your initial check in to get a copy of the reciept with the agreed room rate and have the desk clerk sign and initial all changes he makes. She basically called us liars and they were the ones that had the initial check in paper with the room rate scratched out by their desk clerk, I wasn't given a copy but I will get one from now on. Plus watching my checking account right now because the final receipt and my account charged are not the same, waiting for final to see if changes or there will be another argument. Otherwise the hotel was great, at least rm 701 was.
