I booked a reservation for this hotel in 2/2011 for a stay in 7/2011. The rates were extremely low, which was the reason for booking this hotel. Two weeks after booking the hotel, the manager contacted us and stated that the rate that was reserved, confirmed and booked was incorrect and that we were going to be charged more. After disputing this, stating that we have a confirmation # for our rate, he stated that he would speak to the owner. The owner, David Pearce(spelling??), refused to take my calls. After persistently calling, Mr. Pearce spoke with me. He told me that since I was refusing to pay the additional charges, he was canceling my reservation and refunding my money. Mr. Pearce did not respect the fact that I had a confirmation # and refused to honor the rate I booked. In essence, too bad so sad! I was completely appalled by the way he treated me, the consumer, before I even stepped foot in his establishment. I can only imagine the service I would receive if I would've made it there in July.
