We had an iPad from our room. My son left it there when we checked out. Using the locater Apple app we could tell it was there (it gives the exact address of the hotel, so we knew we'd left it). I called the same day as we checked out (Sunday), but it was nowhere to be found. The front desk said they would look for it, and assured us that the room had not been cleaned yet, & no one had access to the room besides staff. So, you'd expect it to be found since we could see that it was there, and the room had not yet been cleaned. On Sunday when I called, the day we checked out, we could still "see" through the Apple locator app that it was there at the hotel. I called once we realized it had been left, and they said that it could not be found. BUT - on the next day the locator app changed from the hotel address, to "No Location Found." This indicates that someone had it and and erased all of the settings or turned the "location services" off.
It was a gold 128GB iPad in a black "folio" case that my son got for Christmas from his grandparents. We know that it was left there, & exactly where & when it was left. But it's gone. Only hotel employees had access to the room, I was assured, yet we could see through the Apple tracking app that it was reporting its location at the hotel the day we left (Sun), and then not the next time we checked (Mon). We left it (which is totally his fault), but then it was stolen out of the room. He's crushed and had to learn a very hard lesson, and we are very disappointed that no one was honest enough to turn it in. We drive through and stay in Salina regularly, but for obvious reasons will have to choose another hotel (and yes, be certain nothing is left in the room!). Just disappointed that folks aren't more honest these days. less
