Treated with Such Disrespect

08/08/2018 reetee50, Aurora, CO

When we reserved rooms for us and our friends, we requested two rooms on the second floor with mountain views, as we do every time we stay here, which is as much as once a month at times. When we arri... more

BrentJewellGM, General Manager at Best Western Vista Inn, responded to this review
I am truly sorry that you feel that you did not receive the service that you felt was appropriate. In reading your review, I am sorry, but I will have to address several issue that you brought up and correct you with the facts as they truly occurred. These facts can be supported by our front office video that captured not only your behavior, but that of your friend. Fact 1. While you did arrive at 2:00 pm to check-in, our check-in time is 4:00 pm and we made every accommodation to get you into your room 2 hours prior to guaranteed check-in time. Fact 2. While you feel the fact that there were only 4 cars in our parking lot should indicate that we had an abundance of rooms available to choose from and to honor your “request”. The fact of the matter is is that we are an outdoor tourist destination in which 95% of our guests leave immediately after breakfast and do not return until late afternoon as they are enjoying all that the area has to offer. When you arrived we were in fact full to capacity. Cars in a parking lot have no bearing on the occupancy of a hotel. Fact 3. You made your reservation 24 hours prior to arrival with our Central Reservations and that is where you put in a “request” for an upper floor west facing room. As this reservation agent is not at our property she can only make a request and cannot guarantee any room location. Requests are granted based on the order in which a reservation is made, not upon guest arrival. When your reservation came through all upper floor west facing rooms were either occupied or previously assigned to other reservations. As you started to immediately complain that your ‘request”, was not granted, the front desk agent made the decision to bump another guest out of their requested room in the hope that they were more understanding than you. This was the only upper floor west facing room that we had the ability to move, therefore, we could not accommodate your friend. As a request is simply that, a “request” and not a guaranteed room location, compensation is not something that would be offered if a request cannot be full-filled. Fact 4. Regarding your statements that our front desk clerks were rude and were not allowing you to speak, this is also the complete opposite as is shown on our front desk video. The fact of the matter is is that you would not let our front desk agent speak and explain why your request was not honored, as well as why your friend was not being compensated. She knew the facts of the situation and she was trying to explain them to you, but you would not listen. Your friend then proceeded to use vulgarity, call the desk clerks names and threw and hit one of the desk clerks with his room keys. In reviewing the video, our desk clerk was not making faces at you, she simply had a look of shock on her face as to how you both were behaving. Did she giggle? Perhaps, but that was out of nervousness as this was only her second day training in this position and your friend towered over her by at least 2 feet. She was completely intimidated as he leaned over the counter and raised his voice. The video also shows that neither of them yelled that you should never return. Message to future guests: While we do everything in our power to accommodate requests, requests are granted on a first come first basis. During this busy season, reservations and requests are made months in advance and therefore, day of requests at times cannot be honored. If you do have a special request or special needs, it is best to always call the property directly to make your reservation and ask if your request can be honored. Also, based on all reviews 92% of our customers love us and return time and time again!

We are happy to know you found our hotel to be clean, comfortable, and in close proximity to the amenities you needed. Likewise, we're glad your room had plenty of space for you. We apologize for the coffee shortages. The demand during breakfast can be high, so we do our best to brew and restock as quickly as possible. We'll continue to work on improving in this area, per your feedback.

Thank you for the review and for recently staying with us. Please note that all bathrooms at our hotel have fans. The fans are ghost fans, meaning they do not make much noise. We're glad you liked the breakfast and got along well with our staff. We hope to have you again in the future.
