We were awakened at 1:57 am to hear a loud noise and then someone saying, "oh my God, Oh my God". It sounded like a young kid in the hallway. My husband went out of our room to find the night clerk and girl in the hall. The clerk was on a cordless phone calling for assistance. My husband walked into the room where the girl kept walking in and out of to find another girl on the floor and blood everywhere! The victim said she had been shot, so my husband went into the hall to make sure the area was secure got the phone from the clerk and told dispatch, We have a gunshot wound! send an ambulance and the police immediately! The police and ambulance arrived my husband was asked to assist getting the victim on the cart. We then went back to our room.
We had just gotten back to sleep, about 4 am when there was another loud bang against the wall coming from that room. We assumed the PD were in there investigating. Then the front desk called our room and woke us up at 630 am, the PD were requesting an interview with my husband! Really at 630?
Now I know Best Western has no control over what happens at there hotel but they do have control over there response. The night clerk was very apologetic but when we checked out the clerk was rude. She asked if we wanted our bill to be paid on our credit card and our response was "I'm surprised your billing me at all!" Her only reply was, "we have no control over what happens here, you will have to take that up with the owner". She did not offer to give us any contact information for the owner or any other suggestions.
I will not be staying there again and will probably not be staying at Best Western unless I have no other choice.
