We have stayed at this hotel a time before our last encounter and chose to do so based on the overall great experience we had the first stay. Upon checking in on our last stay:
A staff member began downgrading the college apparel we were sporting. I understand this was probably of good nature but professionally speaking it was not a friendly or welcoming gesture.
Secondly, Pam, Manager, did not even greet us when we arrived at 10:40 am, told us that we couldn't check in until 11:00 am then after checking availability proceeded to tell us we couldn't check in until 3:00 pm. Our first stay we were able to check in at 9:00 am, but understand that circumstances are different as the past check in was on a Friday and the first was on a Monday. Honestly, if she had a better attitude and handled our check in with a little more sincerity it would have not been an issue.
Proceedingly, she confirmed our hotel reservations as a smoking room and when we clarified that we did not smoke and would rather have a non-smoking room she confirmed that we had booked a smoking room and that is what we would get. Did I mention we had an infant with us?
She was unapologetic and sent us on our way without farewells.
After leaving, I attempted to cancel my reservation through my travel site, unlikely I know, but worth a try. My online accommodation site informed me that they would be able to cancel my reservation under the hotel's discretion. And under Pam's discretion, that was not happening.
Hope others have a better experience than what I did, but we will not be staying at this hotel again and will take our business and recommendations to another facility.
