Cabins USA Reviews (9)
We were told not to be at our cabin, Bearway to Heaven until 4:00 p.m. We were also instructed if we arrived before 4:00, the cabin would not be ready and we would be charged for another day. We had driven for some time and arranged our first day's schedule around check-in time at 4:00. When we got there, the "maid" was asleep on the couch and we woke her up when we walked on the porch. She opened the door and shut the door in our faces without saying one word. As there was no car near the cabin, we thought a homeless person or a criminal was inside the cabin. We immediately called Cabins USA and were on hold over 20 minutes until someone told us it was the maid and she was cleaning the hot tub. We had to leave because we clearly could not go into the cabin to prepare food and our blood sugar was low. We had not planned on eating out - we were tired and needed to rest. Well, the hot tub was outside and she clearly was not outside and there was no evidence the hot tub had been cleaned in some time. The TV remotes did not work, the bathroom faucet and shower leaks, the kitchen faucet was broken and did not work on all settings, the washer and dryer made very loud sounds and we were afraid to use it, the upstairs bathroom was broken and toilet paper was setting on the floor. There was only one roll of toilet paper. There was a dated red broom on the front porch and a vacuum near the fireplace. There was crumbs and hair all over the place. The telephone rep stated we scared the maid when we woke her up...well...getting paid for a job you clearly are not doing and we paid for the cabin to be ready after 4:00 p.m. Everything had grease smudges across it - even the tv screens. I have called numerous times for the manager to call me and I have texted many times. No one has the professional courtesy to call me back. There is clearly no excuse for the nasty cabin that we paid good money for and the cabin was not even ready when we arrived. We paid for the cabin to be ready and available by 4:00 p.m. and it was not read until very much later. The "maid" was left off there to "clean" and someone picked her up after her nap. I will never stay in a cabin by this company. Please do not spend your good money on a cheap, nasty place to stay. We were not offered a discount since our cabin was not ready at the designated time. We were not offered anything. We had to buy toilet paper as we stayed 4 days and there was only 1 roll in the cabin. I cannot believe this company did not call me back or text me at all. All they want is to take good money from victims that have never stayed there before. We have not even received as much as an apology from Cabins USA. They are rude and unprofessional. They blamed me for "startling" the sleeping maid. Oh, well - she was on our time. We should receive an apology and some of our money refunded. These people are nasty, cheap crooks.
My family had a great time at A Mountain Lodge cabin, we have used Cabins USA for years now and have always been very happy Before Cabins USA we always stayed with other companies and were never pleased This cabin is right in the city of Pigeon Forge but is quiet and the cabin has plenty of room for our family members Thank you Cabins USA!
This was the worst stay for us We stayed the first night at the cabin called the secret rendezvous The photos looked better than the actual place However, the worst part about the stay was we woke up in the morning with bed bugs on our sheets and pillow I complained to the front desk as soon as they were open in the morning They did not seem to care and said they were calling the bug exterminator and didn't even offer us a clean or new cabin We went to the main desk and complained They first stated that we were getting kicked out because they were afraid of us spreading bed bugs We were being polite despite being completely aggravated and displeased They then offered to get us a new cabin However, when we went to the new cabin it was a downgrade The cabin was still dirty and had dead bugs everywhere and old appliances They had tvs that were from years ago compared to the flat screen in the previous bug infested cabin We refused to stay at this downgraded cabin We then went to the front desk and asked for a refund as they seemed frustrated with us and did not apologize for the inconvenience and making two clean people sleep in a bug infested bedroomThe worst customer service and stay
Where do I start? First off I wasnât even supposed to stay in [redacted], I had reserved A [redacted] for my âspecial birthday trip.â When my husband and I arrived at CabinsUSA to check in on Thursday, February 19th, 2015 at 3:30pm we were told âyou canât have that cabin.â I replied with âpardon me?â and then was told that due to an ice storm that hit the area the cabin was inaccessible. I then asked why we werenât notified beforehand and was told that a message was left for me that day at 11:00am. We live 12 hours away and were on the road at 3:00am to reach our destination, so we obviously did not receive that message. What I want to know is why we were not notified earlier in the week seeing as the storm happened on Monday, February 16th, 2015.
Obviously having no control of where we were going to stay until Monday, February 23rd (when we were scheduled to check out) we accepted an âupgradeâ to [redacted] Ridge. My hopes of staying in a âlog cabinâ for my birthday faded when we were given a âhomesteadâ cabin (itâs a house.) We were also told it had all the same amenities that were in A [redacted] as well as a third bedroom.
Once we agreed to stay in this âcabinâ we were told by the desk clerk that they would do their best to get us into A [redacted] the following day but because we were staying in [redacted] Ridge that we would have to pay an additional cleaning fee due to the fact that we would be staying there. I asked to speak to a Manager who then introduced herself as â[redacted] (was later told that there is no [redacted] who works there, but I distinctly remembered her name due to it being the same as a family member.) She made an exception and told me that I would only have to pay the cleaning fee once. So at this time they had my deposit (one night stay) as well as the cleaning fee for the whole stay. They did not charge us for the balance of our stay at this time as they were going to try to move us to our intended cabin âhopefullyâ and then charge us.
We arrived at [redacted] Ridge deflated but trying to make the best of our trip; I mean it isnât their fault Mother Nature decided to spread some ice. The cabin was clean, but musty smelling. It is an older cabin, but homey feeling. Our biggest complaint with the cabin was the fireplace that you canât use. It isnât gas itâs natural, but there is a sign stating that you canât burn anything in it. How does that even make sense? Needless to say, for the duration of our stay we had no fireplace.
At this point we were exhausted and looking forward to a new day. Friday was great until we came back to the cabin around 8:00pm and discovered another family parked outside. All the outdoor lights we had left on at the cabin were shut off as well. Upon speaking with the family we discovered that CabinsUSA gave them our cabin as well as an access code to get in. Not only did this family have access to all our personal belongings (including my laptop) but they were given a âusedâ cabin with dirty sheets, unmade beds etc. Upon calling CabinsUSA we were told that we had only paid for one night and they had assumed we checked out. First off do you not send out a cleaning crew to âcleanâ the cabin before you rent it out? Secondly, we had reservations until Monday, if we didnât get moved to our original cabin where did you expect us to be? My husband and I felt horrible for this other family, and it was a very awkward situation as they had to give us their key code to get in as we were locked out of our own cabin. CabinsUSA then charged my card for an additional night and I told them that we would be checking out in the morning as I was so upset with what had happened that I did not want to stay there anymore.
Unfortunately upon waking at 7:30am on Saturday morning the area was hit with another ice storm over night and we could not get down the driveway safely with the car. I then called CabinsUSA at 8:00am when they open and explained the situation to â[redacted]â. I also asked her to make sure that I was charged for the rate at A [redacted] and not [redacted]Ridge because it was a bit cheaper. She then proceeded to tell me that she would not be charging us for this nightâs stay due to us being stuck in the cabin. I thanked her for all her assistance and was actually happy for the first time in 3 days. Well that didnât last long.
After being stuck in the cabin all day, around 5:00pm there was a banging at the door. I opened it to find a gentleman telling me that I needed to call the office right away; that they needed to speak with me and that he wasnât leaving until I did so. This man did not introduce himself and made me very uncomfortable, and I was feeling glad that my husband was with me. I then called the office again and spoke with [redacted] who told me that the gentleman was their maintenance guy and that he checked the driveway and it was safe to leave the cabin now, so she wanted to know if we planned on staying the Saturday night now or not. I explained to [redacted] that I had called first thing in the morning and made arrangements with [redacted] already to stay the night and that we werenât being charged. She said she was aware of that but [redacted] âhad no business or authorityâ to make those arrangements and if we wanted to stay the night that we would be charged. I proceeded to tell [redacted]to take it up with [redacted] and that it wasnât my problem anymore. I did my due diligence by calling CabinsUSA first thing in the morning and I even offered to pay. [redacted] said there was nothing she could do but then offered to give me the night at 50% off and that I either needed to leave or to pay. I was very upset after going through everything and I told her that we werenât leaving and that just because the weather cleared up from 10 hours earlier that they couldnât go back and try to recoup money after having already made arrangements, and that she did not have permission to charge my card. She then told me that if we were to stay my credit card was going to be charged, and my reply to her was again that she didnât have permission to charge my card. She then said she wasnât going to argue with me, and then hung up on me, and then charged my card (I received an email notification.)
Having nowhere else to go (after already making arrangements with [redacted] thinking everything was taken care of) we stayed yet another horrible night with CabinsUSA. Sunday morning (my birthday) I called at 8:00am to check out a day early and we left not wanting to ever look back.
Not only did I incurred an additional $98.00 in long distance calls on my cell (Canadians pay for usage as well as roaming fees in the USA) but I received the WORST customer service ever. I have been looking forward to this trip ever since I booked it 2 months ago. My birthday was ruined from stress and being upset having to speak with CabinsUSA on a daily basis. I was looking forward to a repeat stay this summer and bringing up our 9 yr. old. Itâs a shame that itâs not going to happen.
Our stay was very unpleasant and now we know all about the non mentioned hidden fees, $150 worth of extra useless charges for cleaning, accidental damage, and administration fees. No refunds for the damage fee either, so just extra money for these guys. The cleaning fee basically means they sweep the floors before you get there and then the change the sheets after you leave but not the stained comforter. They don't own these cabins the lease them. Not one to recommend that's for sure.
We stayed at eagles crest cabin and it was on though certainly not impressed with the cleanliness, upon arrival we noticed that the cleaning person left the back door open so flies were everywhere and we also couldn't access our cabin for over an hour because the lady at check-in gave us the wrong code, we had to wait in the cold with our children until they sent someone out to fix it. The spare toilet was full of feces and was filthy we didn't even use it .
My family had a great time at A Mountain Lodge cabin, we have used Cabins USA for 3 years now and have always been very happy. Before Cabins USA we always stayed with other companies and were never pleased. This cabin is right in the city of Pigeon Forge but is quiet and the cabin has plenty of room for our 12 family members. Thank you Cabins USA!
The cabin was okay but there were issues. The fireplace didn't work. My husband had to pull the front off to get it lit. The cabin was full of ladybugs and stink bugs. The downstairs bedroom and game room was very cold. I purchased a heater to make the space bearable. The oven door handle broke completely off making it unusable. I reported the bugs and oven when I checked out. Once I returned home, I received a call starting I caused 1500 in damages and a police report had been filed. I asked for pictures of the damage which they said they would send right away. After about an hour I called back, and the person handling had left for the day and wouldn't be back in the office for two days. The items which included the oven door were not damaged by my party. Please inspect your cabin immediately upon arrival, to avoid what I am going thru.
