DO NOT STAY HERE. What a rip-off.
I made a reservation for three night over the phone because the phone rate was $40 LESS than Expedia's.
I secured the first night with my credit card as requested.
When I arrived, they could not find the reservation.
They gave me a room but charged me $12 more than the price I'd been quoted over the phone. The clerk couldn't look me in the eye but told me to talk to the manager the next morning.
He had assured me I had the room for three nights.
The next morning they said they were "full" the next two nights and I had to leave. I was furious.
The manager said I should have paid for the room in advance via credit card for three nights. I said, "Why didn't you tell me that when I made the initial reservation?" She couldn't answer.
The place was shabby anyway - dinky room, hair dryer didn't work, no drinking glass, paper-thin towels, bad lighting, old air conditioning unit up by the ceiling and hard to reach to adjust.
I left. I drove by later and they had the "vacancy" sign out. So much for being "Full."
DO NOT STAY HERE.
