I booked a stay in September on 2/2 then learned in another review that there was no air conditioning. I called 2/3 to cancel the reservation and was told there would be a $35 cancellation fee. I disputed this because I didn't recall seeing a cancellation fee when booking. It turns out that it's in small print and shorthand (Reg CXL:$35 fee if cxl 72 hours in advan FF dep if cxl within 72 hrs). It's now 2/13 and I still haven't received a refund of my deposit. An email requesting a refund has gone unanswered for the past 24 hours. Given this poor level of customer service, I would advise against booking with this company.
