We reserved 3 occupants online (1 audlt, 2 children). Upon checking in, I showed the confirmation and the man at reception charged me for additional person $10.99 because, he says, my daughter turned 14 and is charged as adult (even though on the website kids r up to 17 ). At check out, my bill read additional $ 12.99. I asked and the lady said they included the tax with it but then the bottom line tax was based on all the line items so thats a double charge. The IRS should audit that branch. At breakfast, I asked where I can get drinking water. The lady (same one at check out) responds "there! pointing at coffee machine" while walking away. I clarified that I need cold not the hot and she just continued to walk away. She was doing reception at the same time as breakfast room. Their elevator was not working but the man who checked us in did not offer help. We got to breakfast hall before "end time" and there were still more that came after us but they had already ran out of warm food and I asked but they would not make more but no. We all settled for packaged muffins. Before the others were done, the lady turned off all the lights and said that the area is closed. I think that was rude and felt bad for other guests. I thought the location was convenient being off the freeway but its a bit noisy in the area so you couldnt really get rested. Also the room was not "conditioned" for guests to arrive. The tub had some hair so it wasnt cleaned at best. less

Your review is greatly appreciated, though it is very disappointing to learn of the bad impression we made with the state of our accommodations. I am very displeased to hear that anyone was treated with rudeness or that any misunderstandings regarding your booking were not addressed in a professional manner. The standard procedure in such cases is to confer with management regarding what can be done to resolve the issue, as our staff is not authorized to make decisions which conflict with policy. Thank you so much for bringing this matter to our attention.
