The manager was nice on the phone. Front desk staff, however..was not so nice. The young heavy set blond working the front desk couldn't be bothered with us..as she was too busy chatting with friends on her cell phone. She had her feet up on the counter, and didn't even acknowledge us..even after we stood there and waited a few minutes for her to finish. We finally had to interupt her, and she appeared annoyed. There was also a shirtless male sitting at the counter, who remained silent and watched the entire transaction as we checked in. Heavy set blond put her cell down temporarily to explain that check in was not for another hour at 4pm. We explained that 3pm was advertised as check in on their website, and that we had reservations. She still didn't care. She told us to come back at 4pm because the rooms were not clean yet.
We left and came back one hour later. She was still on the phone, and the shirtless male was still there at the desk. She told us that the rooms were still not ready, and I at that point asked to speak to the manager. Walla! The magic words! She took our credit card and swiped it twice. I asked her why she swiped it twice, and she told me that my credit card was the problem (it was new). Shirtless male watched over our shoulder as we checked in..creepy! We were given a noisy, dirty, room in the back by the freeway. The only good part was that we were able to park our car within view of our room. Toilet wouldn't flush and faucet leaked.
