Review: I booked this hotel for 3 nights and on the second night I had roaches crawling on me on the bed while I was sleeping. I called the front desk and they came to spray with bug sprak. I did not sleep and we left one night early. When I asked for my refund of the night I did not stay, they refused. They also said I made up the roaches and basically accused me of lying. but I took pictures of the smashed roaches. I just want my refund but they have never contacted me about it, even though the manager I spoke to wrote on her card she would refund me 1 and 1/2 days. I have never recieved any call backs.Desired Settlement: I would like the 1 and 1/2 days refund that the manager promised me.
The hotel will issue a credit for $213.00 today. Guest should see credit on card within 48 hrs.
Review: My husband and I stayed overnight at this location in Room [redacted] on December 30, 2014, one of the coldest nights of the year. The temperature in the room was 63 degrees. We set the thermostat to reach 70 degrees, watched a little t.v. and went to sleep. All night, the fan was blowing, and the room was still cold. By morning, it became clear to us that the heater had not worked and that the only thing that had saved us was an electric heating pad I had brought for my shoulder on which I had had surgery in early December.
In the morning we called the front desk and the maintenance mechanic came, checked it out, confirmed that there was no heat and said it would be quite some time before he could fix it. There was no connection to a heat source, he said. Checkout time was 11 a.m. So now, without showers and without the breakfast that was included in our fee, we checked out.
The front desk clerk was apologetic but did not say she would report this situation to management. She also made no effort to adjust our bill and I did not ask for that. I asked to speak to the manager and was told he was not in. So, I called on Monday, January 5, left a message, received no call back, then I called again today. The Manager, [redacted] told me, it wasn't true that the heat could not be fixed right away; that if I had reported it the night we checked in, they could have fixed it ; that it is not customary to need heat in [redacted] and basically that it is up to the customer to let the management know when something like heat is malfunctioning. He did not agree with me that there is a certain standard a customer should expect, i.e. that even though there is a thermostat, a customer should not expect heat nor should a customer expect that the hotel's quality inspections should alert the hotel to not rent the room in the first place. He struck me as being unconcerned about the situation we experienced and showed quite a repertoire of excuses for poor customer service.Desired Settlement: Even though I wrote the desired settlement is a refund check to me, an alternative solution would be that this business be charged a penalty, payable to a government agency for what seems to be a practice of charging unsuspecting guests for sub-standard lodging. Another penalty could be that they donate the amount we paid to a homeless shelter. In any case, I would like to receive a written response to my complaint. Please advise if you have questions. Thank you.
