Room was ok - Customer service was terrible

03/08/2017 rhondan377, Beverly Hills, United States

Upon check-in customer service was terrible. Did not advise us ahead of time of problems with reservation. Tried to charge us extra for another room because they did not have roll away beds. We end... more

Dear Rhonda Novak, Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay at our property. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Your satisfaction is important to us. It is important for us that you know we're in the people business in long standing. We specialize in making sure guests continue to have an experience that brings them back again and again. Our long linage of repeat guests tells us we're on the right track. As was explained to you upon check-in, and so noted in your electronic reservation log, we indeed did attempt to reach you about the fact we don't have roll-away beds; part due to the logistics of moving them up and down stairs and part due to not being able to ensure sanitation for a bed that would move in and out a storage room and in and out of an indoor and outdoor environment. I am sure you can appreciate that. The other issue is, we don't lie. Period. To assert such is very disappointing, especially in light of the fact we did out utmost to help you change to a room more suitable for for you and your granddaughter. We adjusted our rates so that you would only have an additional $25 for this room. We are sorry that you chose otherwise. Due to our lobby and guest breakfast-area remodel, we lovingly put together sack-breakfasts together for each guest using items at their choosing. We've never offered a cook to order meal and are in complete compliance with the highest of Best Western standards. Once our mandated remodel is completed we'll be able to return to normalcy and it will look amazing. We hope you'll reconsider and stay with us again whenever you travel our way. Sincerely, Charles Edwards Guest Relations Specialist Best Western Trailside Inn

Hi, Dally D... You actually just recently updated our rooms with decor and furnishings. Sorry you didn't find us much to your liking. The good news is only our lobby and guest-breakfast area is under construction and is finished by 4PM each day and 12-noon on Friday. We loving pack a FREE continental sack-breakfast for guests each day from a list of available items of our guest's choosing while construction is being completed. Not sure what other issues to which you refer; however, if you'd like to share them with us we'd be ready to address them for you. We wish you well on all your journeys.

Remodeling, but still a good place to stay.

We would definitely stay here again. This is an older hotel/motel that is undergoing a remodel/renovation. Despite this, the rooms were clean and it was quiet. The staff was friendly and pleasant ... more

Worse Best Western on the West Coast. Rudest check in clerk.

20/07/2017 Karen D, Yuma, United States

Worse place I have ever stayed. Filthy parking if you were lucky enough to find a parking spot . The check in clerk was so nasty to my 88 year old friend that we wanted to just leave without seeing th... more

Thanks Barbara. As you may be aware, we have been performing a mandatory office and guest lobby remodel over the summer. We apologize if you felt that the three spaces that the contractors are taking up made it hard for you to park. We would love to intervene on your behalf if we know you have an issue whatever it might be. Our contractors pick up after themselves at the conclusion of their shift by 4 PM each afternoon and by noon on Fridays. We've asked them to re-double their efforts to ensure that no dust to debris interferes with guests coming and going. As for the exchange between our staff member and your friend, if I could get more specificities about that incident, I would be happy to address those and ensure that nothing like that is ever repeated. We are dedicated to your comfort and we appreciate your business.
