“Not Expected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We travel a good bit and rely on Expedia for most of our hotel bookings. We have never had a problem until we stayed here. We reserved a room for four, two adults and two kids with what was to be two queen beds. When we arrived I was greeted by the clerk who was on the phone, he did ask if I minded, and seemed competent, but that changed. I got our room, was charged, and headed out to the family. The wife was concerned that Expedia had charged us and went in to talk to the clerk. She said he was very rude to her.
When we entered the room we realized the beds looked small. We usually sleep in a queen size bed and are aware of the dimensions. The wife called Expedia and I got the kids settled in. The charge at the hotel was the only one, so that was good, but the clerk insisted to Expedia that the beds were queen. The tag on the mattress says differently. Also, I was asked on arrival how many would be in the room and not offered any additional towels. There is only two in the room. You'd think that calling ahead for a reservation that you would at least get what you pay for.

Well I was in a non smoking room, which was obvious an old smoking room. Service wasn't bad but the hotel itself needs a major renovation! Flat screen tvs but bad resolution, should have just kept the tube tvs.. Anywho not worth the rate.. Look else where if you can... Marion has a few hotels!

The hotel has been undertaking many good changes in the past few months. Plans are in the works for making it even better. The owner and staff are great and make you feel like you are part of their family. I enjoy staying here when I am in town and recommend it to anyone.

I booked this hotel online and upon arriving they raised the rate. I asked why they were charging more and the manager stated "it would cost more money to cover their online expense." It was a text book "bait and switch". After disputing this with the manager for a hour I ultimately went to a different hotel and I was not refunded my money. Whatever happened to the customer is always right? Do to poor management I would stay clear of this hotel.
