1/5 Terrible

I wasn't given the chance to check in. Right away, the owner is telling to go to the motel around the corner where there can give me a king size bed vs the queen size they had. I did go over to check the other facility and I wouldn't even put it on a scale rating. It was Getto looking, the room that was shown to us, smelled nasty and the desk employee Disgustedly Rude & Obnoxious with his Words. I went back to talk with the Tropic Owner ask why he wanted us to stay the Getto Motel...Well as it turns out, he give my reservation to a person that wanted to stay an additional day. So, needless to say, I had to drive two hours home since I didn't have a place to stay the night. It was such an inconvenience. My reservation were made two months prior and I feel that I should have had top priority over someone who decides to add an additional night. Tropic will not be getting any business from me in the future. No Hospitality Etiquette.

We found long black hair in our bed and lipstick on our sheets! The manager said it was because a previous customer decided to leave and the maids thought they were staying so only made up the bed and didn’t change the sheets. Also they are now renting to itinerant workers who are very young and party late at night and then get up for work at 4:30 am stomping around upstairs and down the stairs. In a nutshell it’s a mistake to book this motel now. We stayed here last year and loved it. Not the same anymore.
