I walk into motel and the representative was blasting his personal music on his lap top and doesn't turn it down for us to talk. I asked the rate and he said $49.99 plus tax and hands me a paper to fill out. This form required my name address and phone number (all fine) as well as my drivers life lisense number!? I filled it all out and handed it back. I asked the representative if there was a AAA membership discount and the representative (and I'm not joking) raises his voice and yells "THIS IS THE LOWEST RATE!" I was like ok wow got it thanks. He then asked me for my credit card and says "that will be 59.99" and I go I thought you said 49.99? He goes "plus tax" I'm like really?? but ok whatever... I see that he is not swiping my credit card but writing my credit card # on the paper which includes all of my personal information. It is a known fact that no legitimac BBB business never writes down your credit are info! Its a huge security risk! I asked why he would need to write my credit # down and he said that's just how they do it.L and showed me a pile of orber peoples credit card #'s! I advised him that that is a very poor idea as anyone could break in and steal that info! I immediately asked for my card and that piece of paper back and left. THIS PLACE HAS POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE AND ADDITONALLY OPERATES ITS BUSINESS IMORRALLY. DO NOT GO HERE.
