1/5 Terrible

Business traveler
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I booked online based on the ratings of the hotel. I had to call a cell phone that was posted on a sign on the lobby desk. Upon checkin they asked for my name. They didn’t ask for any Id what so ever. Front desk clerk gave me my keys and I was off. Went and grabbed dinner and retired to my room early. I was awoken to someone unlocking my room and banging the door. Lucky for me I had the safety latch on otherwise I would of been sharing my room with some strangers. I announced my presence in the room and the couple apologized. I immediately called the front desk with my concerns. The front end clerk could care less. She begin to interrogate me on the phone like I was in the wrong room. She asked what time I checked in, my complete name and responded with we had you checked in another room. First and last time I will stay at a la Quinta
