I was trying to use up the last of my reward points with their parent company because I can't seem to get good rooms or service with their point system.
Upon arrival I realized this was not the safest of neighborhoods but their was other hotels (owned by the same reward company I'm happy I don't have any more points with them) but I was like your in the room for a short time give it a chance.
When I checked in the guy asked me to fill out this paper work (name, address, phone...) I said I have a rewards card can't you pull it up based on my drivers licenses. He had my drivers license in his hand (I gave it to him), he said it's faster if you do it the proceeded to write my drivers license number and date of birth on the check in slip. This is where I didn't keep quite any more, I stated to him I've checked in several hotels not ever ever has someone written down my date of birth. He said "this is so I know it's you" I said my drivers license already showed you it was me, with identity theft writing down my date of birth in an unsecured area was in correct storage of data and it wasn't needed for any to provide my identity. He agree but didn't shred the check in slip or tried to secure it in any way I told him that I would put what happened in my trip advisor review to warn other customers.
Upon entering my room I got what I paid for (old furnishing, old towels....) but there was a bed & tv but there was no iron to be found. The one time I need an iron in a hotel room there isn't any so I had the inconvenience of going down stairs while I was getting dressed to get an iron.
First & last time at this hotel for me. No one should pay any more than $40 to stay in that hotel in my opinion.
