...clerk lied about rates, lied about manager availability, overcharged substantially on advertised rate(double), we paid more than advertised because we arrived later in the afternoon and we were tired and we are choice members. he did NOT want to look up our CHOICE account. very 'SNOTTY' (sorry any about the term)
arrogant ,then gave us ONE room key that did not work, we asked for two .we had to go back to desk to get a new key. we asked for 2 again he tossed them on the counter and sneere and smirked. he treated others with the same attitude.
toilet did not work...period.other guest complained about this also. internet did not work .period ....pool was not clean and not usable. bathroom dirty. cool water in shower all the time.
missing heat lamp bulb, bed had old saggy mattress, lacked and structure organization in staff responsibilities,no management skills. television barely worked. other clients had the same issues and some had tvs that did not work at all. breakfast had typical Choice food. presentation was totally disorganized. host was sweating on the food . SWEATING from his forehead and nose. handling foods with sweaty hands no gloves or tongs.
no refrigeration for foods...eggs, dairy etc. health standards not being met
we, as well as others, sat in lobby for extended periods to use what little slow internet was available.
the complaints and concerns were repeated over and over no matter what time of day at front desk.
THIS IS ACTUALLY THE WORST HOTEL WE HAVE STAYED AT!!! WE ARE TRAVELERS. WE ENDED STAYING AT BEST WESTERN. there is no reason for this.it seems this is the standard for this place and left a bad taste for a lot of customers and us. Thank you for your time.
