When you call the motel you get an abrupt, gruff… “Willabee’s”. No friendly voice … “Willabee’s how may we be of service” or “How may we help you”. That should have been my first clue. The owner pretty much mans the desk with NO smile or warm welcome. He is doing YOU a favor. Having personal visits during the day prevents him from getting off the couch to assist his customers. This is not a pet friendly motel, because he has three un-bathed dogs that wander freely in the lobby, one of which is vicious. You can smell the un-bathed animals the minute you walk in and you must wash your hands after petting the two dogs that are friendly (your hands will stink!) He brags that they are attack dogs and he must put one of them away when people walk into the lobby as the dog still doesn’t understand that it can’t attack people. We had been warned by an employee, that one of the two VERY LARGE dogs had bitten two people, tearing the hand of one woman and ripping off the elbow of an elderly gentleman. The owner had admitted that his dogs had “torn up visiting animals” which is why it is not a pet friendly motel.. he did fail to mention that one of the dogs had attacked two customers! The owner, a former construction worker claiming to be past law enforcement lacks personality. He is rude and feels the need to barge into your room anytime he wants, regardless if you are in the room or not. They do not offer “Do Not Disturb” signs. He refuses to respect your privacy, even when voicing your concern in a very professional way. He will tell you, it’s his right to come and go from your room whenever he wants and if you don’t like it, go somewhere else. So…we went somewhere else, as I refused to argue with such nonsense and disrespect of my privacy. NO…you are NOT allowed to come into my room whenever you want and rifle through my company laptop, legal documents and paperwork that contain very private information and social security numbers, addresses and date of births! In my business I take all precautions to be certain my client’s information is safe and secure and I will not allow someone to tell me he will do what he wants because it’s his business. Well buddy, I own a business as well and I will protect my clients from people like you who think they can control the world and do what they want. The casino accommodations down the road, offer a better atmosphere and a great staff and they offer smoking rooms as well. They are kind and appreciate your business and respect your privacy…plus you don’t have to worry about losing life or limb because of “attack” dogs (which he boldly boasts) roaming the lobby area. On a positive note, the cleaning crew does a great job…the rooms are very clean.
