To make a long story short my husband and our 3 young daughters were staying in the La Qunita at Garner Ferry Rd along with 8 other family members and thier children. We were celebrating the Graduation of our nephew at Fort Jackson. We chked in 4:30 and was robbed by 8:30. Whoever it was knew when we were and were not in the rooms. The manager a.k.a owner never showed until 2:30 next daya dn we kept being told that all floors had cameras so we wd know who and how they got in....just so happened the floor we were on was the only floor the cameras were not working on. They knew exactly where to go for our wallets and only stole credit cards. they left valuables and ran up over $10,000 in charges at Lowes and gas stations buying welders, tile cutter and gift cards. the next day someone else was robbed of thier Cadailitic Converter cut clean off thier truck in the parking lot-just so happened the one place that there are no cameras. Several other issues happened and not once wd the owner/manager speak to the police. The front desk was laughing and told my minor daughter to shut her mouth and mind her own business and telling other people checking in that we were crazy! You bet we were! Other people staying in the hotel saw the guys we suspected as part of teh scam and said they felt they were tailed as well. We absolutely believe this cd not hv taken place if it were not an inside job. It wd hv been impossible other wise.
