“Don't Ever Stay Here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2008

This had to be my worse nightmare with this Quality Inn in Columbia, S.C. This Quality Inn constantly put down Expedia when we had to cancel a few rooms due to completing some of our work early. We still had 2 rooms remaining for the week. This hotel never changed the towels or made the beds. They kept claiming that they don't clean the room if there is something on the bed, when in reality nothing has been left on the bed. At least give us clean towels. We tried to ask them to clean the room after 2 days of them not giving us clean towels and they decide to kick us out. We call the police to file a police report, the police said they can't come out right away so as we left due to having to work, the hotel trashed the room and blamed it on us. They claim they have witnesses, but we already know they're all liers. Why would we trash a room when we're the ones who called the police? Doesn't make sense. They told Expedia that they never received the fax of one of our cancellations and made them pay for it. They kept telling us that Expedia always screws up and never returns your calls till the end of the day, which is not true. My wife talked with them in the morning and had everything resolved that same phone call to Expedia. We were nothing but nice to these people, we even put a fire out for them the day we arrived. I carried 5, 5 gallon buckets of water to put out their fire they had in their lobby due to the fertilizer on the plants. My wife works for Lockheed Martin in travel and will make sure all her clients won't use this place. They should know that what goes around comes around and maybe that fire was some other karma coming back to them from some other customers they were rude to. I wish I can find the main headquarters of this Quality Inn in Columbia, SC because they really need to be reported for scamming their customers and scamming Expedia.
