***Worst experience I have EVER had! Please do NOT use this motel, I honestly think the owner is crazy and fear that one day a guest is going to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when this guy snaps! ***
The original conversation with his wife was great. They were the only motel in the whole town with a room available because of a major event (I wonder why). We told her that we would have 2 to 4 people. She said no problem if it ends up more than 2 they would just charge us 10 dollars extra per person. We asked that they not charge our card on file because we were going to pay in cash. Before we even arrived, we began receiving phone calls from the owner saying that if we weren't there by 6pm he was charging our card. We explained that we would be later and please don't charge the card, but promised we would be arriving later and paying with cash. He told us too bad be there by 6 or we charge the card. I withdrew cash from my debit that he had on file because I didn't know what he was capable of charging at that point. At 5 minutes after 6, he began calling and leaving messages telling us that we had a problem, our card is not going through and we needed to get this straightened out. Finally, we arrived at the hotel after 7 and he was livid, screaming at me about a valid credit card and yelling that he sees 5 people in our vehicle (there were 4) and this is a motel for couples only. I explained that the lady I spoke with told us we could pay for additional guests and he screamed "that LADY is my wife!" and you're not getting any extra towels! I then told him I didn't want to stay at the hotel as his aggression was way out of line and he turned it around and informed me that we were not allowed to stay there any longer. As we were walking out the door he continued yelling obscenities. I seriously thought I was on an episode of PUNKED! Scary, irrational man.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Small family run business. We work hard to provide nice clean rooms and friendly service. We do not allow pets in the rooms as we try to provide allergy free rooms for our guests. We do not allow smoking anywhere in or around rooms. State law requires 45" from door ways and windows, for this we have designated smoking areas across the way. No smoking in cars outside your door way as this violates our policy. We as a family, do all the work ourselves and try to please all guests. We do charge fees for smoking in the rooms and excessive cleaning fees caused by damages from guests. These are for extreme measures as there are people who this they can abuse the system and dispute later. We are not a large facility and it isn't right for us to absorb the cost of damages due to guest negligence. We have a great property and want everyone to have a wonderful experience with us. Thanks for considering us as your home away from home. ... more less
