I made reservation using "(570) 622-4917" one day early before arriving. I arrived and filled out paperwork for the room for one night and signed the receipt before going into room. I then went into the room to find a horrible hotel room. The door looked kicked in which is a safety issue. The fridge look so old and was missing the bottom panel exposing wires. The bathroom ceiling tiles are mold infested and missing in some locations. The light socket was missing cover and exposed the bulbs and wiring. The lights flickered and never worked. The room was filthy. I asked for a non smoking and got an ash tray never cleaned and the room stench of 20 yrs of smokers. After 5 minutes of being in the room I returned to the office and nicely asked for a refund. He told me I could just get another room and tried to hand me another key. I told him this place is unsafe for me and my wife. He told me in a quick and smart [-] way of no refunds. I said fine and then called Bank of America and asked for advice and they cancelled my card. Somehow still the charge did go through but its going through there claims department and they assure me that since I did not stay the night and found another hotel "Ramada" then I would not have to pay. That is still pending. I then called the city of Pottsville PA code enforcement and they were closed. I left a message to call me back so they can close this dump down. I have pictures on my cell phone of everything listed above. Called AAA and they are currently under review. I made all these calls in the main office in the employees presents. When I arrived I had paid $5 deposit for the key. After all those phone calls he seem very upset. I laid the key on the counter and asked for my $5 back. He quickly snatched it away and said "no money for you". The funny thing is he only put in on the lower part of the counter. A second after he put it to the lower counter i snatched it back and said I paid for it you thief. At that point he had enough and 1 younger man I think was his brother and some older lady grabbed me by my arm and clawed me for the key and at that time I dropped the key along with my cell phone, cell phone charger, and keys and they were pulling me out the door stepping over my wife and on her foot to pull me out. I dove for my cell phone and keys but didn’t get my charger cord. Since they stood on my wife’s foot, her shoe came off and she was yelling for it back and after threating calling the police, they threw it back at her. I did call the police. They have records that 2 officers came to talk to us. They tried to find my charger but with no success. The police told me they could do nothing about it and apologized for the hotel. I still have scratches on my hand and Genda’s foot still hurts. We did finally booked the Ramada for the night which is a relief to be done with it. I will do everything I can to make aware to others of this place "Pottsville Motor Inn". This is a family own hotel in dirty business. Wait until I get these pictures downloaded off my cell phone. They may not be good quality but you can see how awful room 107 truly is. - 01/08/2009 at 3pm to 4pm
