1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I had requested and received confirmation for an accessible room. After making the reservation with Expedia I called the hotel to confirm that the room was accessible and had grab bars in the bath including the toilet. When we got there the front desk person said the room was only accessible for hearing impaired people. That was completely unacceptable. He made numerous calls to managers, and finally they came up with a queen room with our accessibility requirements. This took about 45 minutes to an hour. We appreciated his help but this should NOT have happened because we took so much care to be sure we got the right room. A very upsetting experience.

We enjoyed our stay and the staff was incredibly nice. I did not like that my charge was different than what Expedia pricing was and that I have to wait several days to get a refund.
