Hotel Scam

Super 8 Motel, Windsor. DO NOT STAY


I was charged $85 for supposedly smoking in a non-smoking room. They said the maid took pictures of cigarette butts in the room. The clerk said she could send me the pictures, when I said that would be great, my attorney would like to see them, she then rescended her offer of the pictures. Suddenly she could not send them to me.

When I asked to speak to the property manger, i was told his name was "Raj" and he would have to call back.

His name is not "Raj," it is Allen, they did not want me speaking with the property manager! I was threatened with "other possible charges, " if I did not stop calling the motel.

Liars, Thieves, Scam Artists!!!!!!

Hi ksnowden1971;

You may not have realized it, but the forums are not for accommodation reviews.


Please take a moment and write a review of the hotel. Many more people read the reviews than the forums when researching accommodations.


Best Regards

Hi Ksnowden1971,

Out of curiosity I did check the TA REVIEW Section for the Super 8 Windsor, and interestingly enough you are the first to have such a problem... so giving people a heads-up is a good thing.

BUT, as RESCUETEAM has said, the FORUMS aren't the right place for longevity of that info (they change daily, and your comments will soon move down the pile).... you'll need to write a REVIEW for the Hotel if your comments are to have any benefit to other travellers.



PS... Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience on your vacation... that always is a downer.

LMFAO - the advert placed in line this thread (as we get these days) as I view it is the "Light Up Your Holiday Spirit" one from Tourism Ontario - brings a whole new dimension to it!

I am always a little aprehensive about taking too much from a rant when it is the persons first post ever on tripadvisor.

He/she also has not answered the question; so, did you smoke in the room?

If they did, and there were notices not to, then they got off easy.
