When faced with a family emergency we had to cut our stay short by one day. You only know if you ask, so I asked if they could offer a partial refund- not looking for a full refund since the room was booked for an additional night- however LCL wasn't fully booked either therefore shouldn't have had any trouble turning the room. I told the "manager" this was the first time staying at this property & we would like to be a guest again but I've always been a firm believer in speaking up and asking if... she cut me off saying "I use that tactic too"! Really! "tactic" is that how you treat your guests? I wasn't asking for a full refund to begin with! Then she said, you didn't book thru us, I have to pay the booking agent and now your asking for an even greater discount... really? Did the word discount come out of my mouth? I simply asked to split the last nights stay- even agreed to pay all fees. She then eluded to say the person that checked us in didn't charge the right amount... she said she couldn't calulate a refund and played ignorant when I told her how to calculate it! Don't make excuses just simply say NO and KINDLY apologize but perhaps offer another solution for a future visit. Breakfast should say continental BF! Room wasn't clean- food around the parameter of the room- we found beans, bugs, chips and hair. We paid $472.18 for 3 Nights. Shame on your customer service- send that manager to CS Training or get rid of her before she rids you of your repeat customers!
