I booked this hotel only because it was close to a casino we were going out to for my birthday. I planned to surprise my husband with it, but the staff ruined it by calling during dinner to confirm the reservation after I had already called and confirmed hours previously and specifically told them it was a surprise. They wanted $300 damage deposit and I was going to pay that with cash (CC on file, and drivers license). The employee doubled the damage deposit, and when I refused, threatened to call the cops. A gentlemen wanted to buy my room since the night was ruined I wanted to give it to him. The employee refused. The GM text me threatening me on my drive home. They refused a refund entirely.
NEVER EVER STAY they have inconsistent "policies", they're rude, unprofessional, and TBH I thought he doubled the deposit so he could steal it.
