I had reservations at the Holiday Inn Express in Magnolia, AR for September 23rd and September 25th. The stay on the 23rd was Ok except for the extreme amount of cigarette smoke that I could smell from another guest's room (my room was non-smoking).
When I tried to check in on the 25th, I was told that they had given my room to someone else! I showed the desk clerk my confirmation email, but that did not matter. She said that some guests that had stayed on the 24th "had decided to extend their stay".
If you have ever been to Magnolia then you know that the Holiday Inn Express is the only acceptable hotel in town. Yes, there are other hotels/motels there but they are not clean. I've seen them myself. So my only alternative was to drive 30 minutes over to El Dorado and stay in a very nice, newly renovated Hampton Inn.
I've stayed in hotels all over the country. Never have I had my confirmed room given away. My whole extended family visits Magnolia frequently to see my sister and her family. Never again will this happen to me as I won't trust this place again!
