Upon check in my group was informed by the front desk clerk that since we booked through an online travel site and they were so full we had to be moved to smoking rooms. Apparently when you don't book directly through them they give you the rooms located on the ground floor that are disgusting. My friend arrived in her room and kicked off her shoes to relax and noticed men's shoes and a briefcase. She quickly left the room and informed the front desk. They actually placed a single woman in a room that was already occupied. To make matters worse the room they moved her to was on the ground level and the window did not lock. She didn't sleep a wink that night and and left the next day. The hotel would not even refund her for the night she didn't stay there. I was able to move to a non smoking room, but had to share a bed with my friend. There was no hot water and the smoke alarm battery was low so it beeped for hours before I finally figured out what was going on. Upon check out we talked to the manager and explained all of our troubles only to be informed once again that she could not help us do to the fact we booked through a online site. I told her that they shouldn't even sell rooms through an online site if they are not going to treat the guest with the same respect as someone who booked directly through them. This hotel is dirty and outdated and management could care less about customer service.
