“Waste Of Money, Weird Things Happened!!! (read whole review before considering staying there)”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

My bf paid about $500 bucks for us to stay for a little over a week. I was happy at first since there was a microwave and there wasnt at the last place we stayed at. there was also a pretty nice tv and a coffeemaker and a nice shower. but the tv didnt have any good channels, the coffeemaker was infested with ants and the shower was either too hot or too cold. there was barely any cars ever in the parking lot but for some reaso they gave us the room 217 that was in the top corner because apparetly there were no other rooms, like the guy at the front desk said. We kept the curtains closed because if we opened them it would look out to a wall and no sky. also the maid lady knocked onto the door very softly while we were sleeping one morning then right when I was about to say something, she opened the door but we had the lock thing on it so it only opened a couple inches. then she said sorry and my bf asked for towels and she made her poor little kids work for her and get them. another weird thing is that we never came back to the hotel with it cleaned, so I wonder if she would have cleaned if we werent there, or just snooped. The weirdest thing is that out of the 50 rooms we got the one in the corner next to some storage room or something and whenever me and my bf were there, we would hear someone walk past our room then go up above into the attic right above our room and walk around but it seemed like they were trying to be quiet, it got to the point where my bf was yelling at the ceiling saying "we hear you mofos we know you're up there you freaks leave us alone" and i knocked on it twice and they returned the knocks a little bit later. it seemed like they were f'ing with us or trying to spy on us. i think they liked listening to me and my bf hook up and they could have been watching somehow. the hotel phone was on speaker the whole time without us pressing it or knowing it and it just has a weird vibe. the blankets and stuff were dirty and the fridge was way too loud. and the location sucked unless you're in love with jack in the box. im never staying there again it freaked me out!!!

I haven't stayed at this hotel yet. I booked a reservation and then had a problem with canceling the reservation. I contacted Brian (who is the manager) and he was extremely professional and helpful. He took care of the problem and obviously takes customer service seriously.
