Go elsewhere! All interactions with front desk were tense and unnecessarily abrasive (except for one employee who worked the desk during the day who took the time to look at me in the face, greet me and smile). All of the other desk folks were put off by my requests/ concerns, were unhelpful and clearly did not want to be dealing with a guy in a camo hat. One guy, night desk stared me down in the way we all know but can't comment on (I'm Caucasian) simply because I complained that they charged me for parking for my entire stay before my stay was done. I parked elsewhere and STILL HAVE NOT BEEN REFUNDED. Additionally, when these folks tell you they need a card # for incidentals, they fail to tell you they are going to hit your card for 150$. I do not make or have much money, I was in town because a relative had emergency heart surgery at a nearby hospital, and could have very easily been stranded without food or gas. When I called the morning after my first night there (when I saw the charges for incidentals and "advance" parking), the girl I spoke with went through the whole "ignorance" routine- this was a sad and miserable conversation with zero results. She said verbatim "we will refund these charges immediately- she did not do this at all. After this call I had an uneasy feeling about their employees accessing my room even though I hung the do not disturb sign. I got back late that night to find with 100% certainty that they had gone in the room and had disturbed personal belongings- nothing was missing, but I believe that's irrelevant. Parking prices were ridiculous at the hotel- approx 35$ per night and the continental breakfast which was comparable to a days inn cost 6$. Lastly: unsafe place to be at night
Nice rooms, but ABSOLUTELY NOT WORTH IT.
I hope that the "race police" will not scrub this review because of my feedback. If these things were not true I wouldn't dare say them.
