How is this company allowed to ambush-charge you with damage waiver/cleaning fees of $122+ after their unit is booked through a Super Savings offer on a major booking website?!?!? Shocked to see it was not just me. 50% mark-up on the "discount" rate offered by Hotwire.com. The room was dinky, with a clanking heater-A/C unit, one miniature trash can, and windows on one wall that opened onto a walkway (no privacy) and the empty parking lot beyond.
The "front desk" wasn't manned for a single second of the time we were there, and the smoking maintenance guy showed up to the room in the middle of the afternoon of the second day of our stay to drop off the linens for the "next" people...which I had to put under the bed...
Check-in was an ordeal in itself. They have a red "bat-phone" that should connect you directly to a rep if you check in "after hours" (it was 4:00 p.m.). Naturally, that phone didn't work, and I had to jump through hoops on an emergency number to get in touch with the brusk lady from Oaseas to be held over a barrel to pay the "damage waiver/cleaning" fee just to get a key on the non-refundable room I'd already booked. Highway robbery.
These people should be ashamed of themselves. Will not use this company or Hotwire again.
