This hotel is very unsafe and unsecure. I stayed here with my wife and brother in law on Saturday 9/13/08. At 2:30 AM my wife woke up due to some strange man touching her hair and face. She immediately asked the intruder what he was doing in our room and he said I'm sorry wrong room and he left. She woke me up and I immediately attempted to contact the front desk. No one answered at the front desk. We left room and attempted to take the elevator from our 5th floor room to the lobby. The elevator did not work. While we were waiting for elevator we saw a man running from one room to another. We also saw toliet paper rolls being used to prop open several room doors on the 5th floor. We than walked down to lobby and discussed intruder with lobby staff. He accused my wife of giving her room key to someone else and forgetting that she gave away room key. My wive found her key and finally he called the police. The police arrived and found the back hotel door unsecured with toliet paper roll. they also found that several of the rooms doors were not secured and entered with guns drawn. Finally the police checked everything out and we were able to rest after 4:00 AM. We advised lobby staff Robert that we would be staying for next two days due to incident. He said that the police report said that there was no evidence that anyone had been in our room and we appeared to be intoxicated. We had not been drinking. He said that due to this police report that he could not give us any compensation for our problems. When I contacted the police I found that there was no report submitted so I don't what report that he was referring to. I also found out that Robert was not manager as he stated. I am still waiting for manager to return from her vacation to discuss issue with her.
