I stayed at this hotel and checked in around 8pm. "Steve" was working at the desk, and informed me that the debit/credit card machine was not working and I would have to pay cash. I had no problem with this, and he led me to the ATM in the adjacent lounge (add $4 in service charges to get cash). So I paid him $92.50 and checked in. My room was terrible, the smell is disgusting. Loud and old-timey A/C, not close enough to the wireless signal to access the internet, the windows wouldn't open, the bathroom was filthy..BAAH! Anyway, we suffered through it, exhausted after driving all day. The next morning I went to check out and my receipt showed that I had only paid $73.94 in cash. I asked the lady working and she said that was the amount "Steve" had put in his deposit for my room, and that he had probably pocketed the difference. I asked her about the debit/credit card machine, and she told me it had been working fine. So after unsuccessfully trying to contact "Steve" and see what was going on here, the manager finally agreed to refund me the difference and take it off the guy's pay. I would never stay there again and I hope that others will avoid it as well. If I had done some research in advance, I NEVER would have stayed there, but when you are driving across the country, you get a little tired after being in a car all day and you just want to get any room you can get.
