Worst Customer Service Experience

12.08.2019 AliceRose92,

Do not stay here. Check in was far from welcoming, no friendly greeting. On arrival the room itself smelt and the drawers were broken, there was a coffee filter left in the machine from the previou... more

If I could give this place negative stars I would. We booked a room through Expedia that said the room was "pet friendly". After I booked the room, I called the hotel directly and told them I had bo... more

It is amazing how people just write these reviews. The entire property is on surveillance and also the lobby. To start off, your reservation did not come through having a pet. You showed up and demanded a Pet Room. The footage showed a lot of use of the F-word, S-word, and several degrading comments about the manager's culture.. Falsifying information is against our rules. We do have Pet Friendly Rooms and there is an extra charge of $30 per night for 2 dogs that weight up to 80 pounds. You didn't want to pay the extra charge. Lastly, The only reason the police arrived is because you were drinking and driving and you got caught. I know you wanted to have fun on the 4th of July, but being intoxicated is just wrong. Endangering yourself, your wife, your pets and all the other lives is just un-replaceable. Don't drink and drive, it could save a lot of lives. Stay safe. The Staff at Twins Bay Inn

Dear DayTripper33, We are sorry that you experienced an unpleasant stay. But we can't control other people's actions. What we did was contact the guest and asked them nicely to please keep it quite since the property was fully booked. Again, we cannot control other people's actions. We do apologize for the smelly room, we are in the process of renovation. We have completed the majority. But as you know this is a work in progress and remember, "Rome wasn't built in a day". We hope that you have a nice and wonderful summer. Regards, The Staff at Twins Bay Inn

Horrible customer service

twinsbayinn, Hospitality Review at Twins Bay Inn, responded to this review
Dear Mtnamber, Our biggest problem is that guest's "over-lie", like they feel their first lie is not enough to sell it, so they'll throw three or four of them in the mix. We understand that things unexpectedly happen but you also have to understand that hoteliers get many false reasons for not wanting to stay. The reservations did have a cancellation fee as do all hotels have. We are just a mere small property that is family owned and operated. We are not the Ritz nor a Palace. We are what you would call simple and easy going property. We hope that you have a wonderful summer. Regards, The Staff at Twins Bay Inn
