This is not a hotel! It is some kind of senior condo area from what I can tell. Trip was a disaster. Had made reservation through expedia. Here is how it happened:
10/2/04. Called Meridian Condos at 4pm for directions. Redirected to answering service and attendant did not know how to give me directions. There is no front desk. There is no lobby. There is no manager to talk to.
After getting lost several times and buying a local map, found Meridian condos approx 8pm. Office was closed but key was taped to door of office with instructions (in a strip mall down the road). (No mention of this was made in advance.)
Entered condo. Condo had a very strong and bad smell to it, similar to a house that had many dogs and not cleaned. Condo was not visibly dirty, just smelled awful. Attempted to air out condo by opening windows. It did not work. Tried to call office, but just got redirected to answering service. At this point we wanted to leave but there was nobody to talk to and no way to check out.
Toilet was running. Toilet seat was very old and had paint chips coming off of it. Sheets on bed were clean but were very old and thin.
10/3/04 - After airing out condo all night, it still smelled terrible. At this point I made a new reservation at the Fairmont Marriot. We went to office at 9am to checkout. Representative of Meridian informed me there was no manager available and that no refund would be offered (we had paid for 5 nights in advance). She apologized to me for my complaints but also said she had never even been in the condo we were staying in. She let me know there would be no refund offered and that I should call Expedia. She did not offer a second condo for us to stay in.
Called Expedia and recounted the entire ordeal. Expedia refused to remedy situation and is not processing refund. Called Visa and reversed charges.
