Darlene review category business travellers May 7, 2024
Positives: Very good breakfast. Comfortable & clean room. Helpful staff.
Negatives: Nothing
One night stay
Mary family with young children May 5, 2024
Positives: The hotel itself was very nice. Beds comfortable with a nice included breakfast and a nice sitting area both inside and outside.
Negatives: We requested one of the two rooms we booked to be handicap accessible and got a message back from the hotel saying it would not be an issue. We did not receive that type of room. After 10pm, we received a phone call that started with, "Who is this?". My husband told the person his first name and then the person (Shay) said, "This is the front desk. What is your last name?" My husband replied and was told that we were not supposed to be in that room but rather a different one. The room named was one of our rooms. The front desk then said we only had booked one room. (I have an email with a confirmed reservation for two rooms. The expectation was that we should vacate the room and we declined. We were then billed at a much higher rate and I needed to go down the next morning and spoke with someone at the front desk who corrected the billing after I forwarded the email from booking.com with my rate and confirmed reservation. The check in and the after 10pm call were both unacceptable and both people were very rude. We were staying one night for a funeral and did not appreciate thd hassle of having to deal with this.
