Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
DISGUSTING staff I respectfully checked in, settled for a bit as I waited for the person I was with to arrive...I was very respectful to the male at the front desk yesterday just hoping to have a nice VALENTINES DAY. started off horrible as when my partner arrived she was rudely addressed at the front door by the same male working the shift February 14th, 2020 the hours of approx 6pm-12am, and I still proceeded to move on and have a nice stay but as I tried to clear up the situation, clarifying this was my partner in my room, this man proceeded to bash us both and even threatened a refund and told us to leave if there’s a problem, unprofessional idk who hired this man or why he’s still around because I noticed he was having a similar problem with a guest as I walked in but I didn’t think much of it. Sadly this miserable human being apparently couldn’t allow a nice night for anyone and because I was disrespected and offended I tried asking for the refund I was offered only to find an empty front desk and this man is outside the front door smoking and then declined to give me my money back as he previously stated he would and told me to “call someone”. If there’s any shred of professionalism in this company, I would like to seek a refund as I wasn’t given a fair chance at all and my night was completely shaken up by this miserable person.
