I called the desk directly in the early afternoon asking for a specific type of room. I was told that there was such a room available, in fact, there were several available. I wanted to reserve one with a credit card and was told it would not be necessary, especially since I was checking in just after 3:00 p.m. I arrived at about 3:20 p.m. and walked with a cane and wore my Army cap when I entered the lobby. I presented my AARP Card. I was told my AARP Card was expired. I knew it was about to expire and my new one was on my desk at home. I was then told that the only rooms like I was requesting were upstairs. None downstairs. I asked the clerk if she was the one I spoke to on the phone and she said she was not as she just started her shift at 3:00 p.m. I could have taken a room almost like I wanted and downstairs, that was available. However, I'm stuck on principle. I don't like being lied to. Period. I don't lie. If I did I would lose business. Well, Visalia lost business to Tulare. I won't be shopping in Visalia or eating in Visalia. All because someone felt they had to lie. Well, when I got to my motel in Tulare I realized that my AARP card did NOT expire until the end of June! So long Visalia!
