We checked in to the hotel on 9/21/11 and checked out on 9/26/11.
I gave my Visa card to the hotel clerk and they took the number for theirfile to hold until we checked out. The next day when I went to use it - the restaurant where we were eating said it was declined. Thought there must be a problem with their machine so used cash. Next time I went to use it, same problem, it was declined. I called my bank and told them what the problem was and they said it was because they put a hold on it at the hotel for the full balance of what was in my acct. I confronted the manager John Lulich and he informed me that was common and it was done all the time. I asked him to take it off and my friend would give her card to use instead. He said it would be held for 14 days or until we check out the following Monday. Very matter of fact and not at all cooperative. Said it was common for hotels to hold up to $500.00 a day for the room. Second issue was no TV - said it was the cable company's fault and he was sorry but could not do anything. (As a matter of fact 10 rooms were affected this way). Felt like they should have given us a discount - Two nights were 89.95 and three @ $119.95. Shd have at least given us all 5 nights at 89.95. One thing is for sure we would not recommend the hotel to anyone nor stay there again. My friend's two aunts who live in Hamilton go in there quite frequently to eat in the dining room so they will not be going in there again. Last but not least, my friend asked for the owner's name to call later and he refused to give it to her saying that he requested his name not be given out.
