I am still here (Tues) because I paid for another full week 2days ago on Sun. I'd been here the week prior also & am here as my company sent me Anacortes Wa as I work in refineries & must travel to stay working due to the econ... so cost/commute helped me pick this motel & the closer motel to work was already booked up with coworkers. When I pulled up there was not a car to be seen & I heard "shimmy" (sp?) an employee say that they were dead all week, but I was denied the 1st flr I reserved (due to tools, groc., etc.) for which no excuse or apology was given. Anyway, an extended stay or chain it is not.. it is worn around the edges for sure... peeling paint etc... but I was only looking for a place to sleep & eat after working the nightshift for 12+ hours... so my expectations were minimal & yet they failed!
They will not leave me alone during the day... entering my room while I am sleeping & when I am gone to fix a water heater that heats the room below me which the mngr Rhani says is her best room so she needs to rent it (don't I matter? I paid!)... Not every room has a water heater... the whole place is empty... I told her when I made the resv I worked nights & wanted to be undisturbed.. so why put me in a room with a crappy water heater that heats water for several rooms??? Idiots! I should have known when I asked for a Do Not Disturb sign at check in & was told they dont have them. I told them my shift hours last week & that I dont want to be disturbed to have my room cleaned in the morning or early afternoon as I am sleeping... but by 10am they are calling me every 15 min & banging on the door to come in... the mngr thought she was being real funny when she accused me of being a terrorist and asked me if "I was building something in there"... Today she barged into the room while while I was sleeping in my bed (undressed) & forced me from the room to let her worker fix the water heater again!! I was pushed out before I could take my meds (diabetes)... when I came back they were now cleaning & wouldn't leave... my belongings had been moved & rifled through including my laptop, magazines, unplugged my alarm clock, & touched my medications... And they told me they will come back in my room again when I leave against my wishes!!! I feel totally violated!!!
I have a physically demanding job that is extremely dangerous... I have made that clear & yet they will not let me sleep in peace... I have been dragging myself in to work tired because I need more that 2hours here & 3 hours there... especially being a diabetic.
I should also mention that the Wi-Fi went out last week... first they denied there was problem & then they called back a few days later to say it was fixed... it worked for a day & has been out since. I have a young son at home & we use Skype when I travel (homework/catching up on his day) & I cant see him because they fail to provide the services they advertise are included in the room rate... And the cable TV.... it sucks too.
