1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nothing from the first minute it was a grief. The front desk was very mean. I have videos of his ugly behavior . I showed him Expedia confirmation number but he was screaming and saying that we don't work with Expedia for two years , I asked to talk to the management and when he called his manager his manager was also ugly and I could hear him on the phone screaming so he did not want to talk to me and hang up on the front desk guy. I asked them to give letter sating that they don't work with Expedia so I can get my money back but they refused. The only option was either I leave to find another hotel or I pay cash because they refused to take credit card. Since I was tiered and not familiar with area I had to pay cash and I had a receipt with video showing that I got charged twice , one by Expedia and another by the hotel. The room was not the room that I was chosen when I reserved instead they gave me a room with two twin bed! Bathroom was dirty. Breakfast was horrible and treatment were very very unprofessional by the service staff where there was only two. I did not eat because I could not trust that the food from it is look seems stored somewhere in the heat for days! Security zero. Anyone can come into the hotel without anyone asking question. I was very worried for may money where I had to carry what I had everywhere I go during these two unpleasant days that I stayed there. Expedia should not have listed this hotel . I called Expedia and selected option callback but!
