Terrible Business Policies

I was really disappointed with this hotel staff. We are a family of six and so I booked a room with two queen beds, which is what I always book when we travel, and upon arrival the guy at the front desk charged me an extra $44 because of the amount of people we had. It was ridiculous and never have I experienced this before, and we travel at least once a month. He stated there were too many adults, because children over the age of 10 are considered adults to him. Needless to say we will not stay here again. If two of my kids weren't so little I would've made a bigger deal but being out of town with no where else to go I had no choice. The hotel itself was decent.

    • Disliked: Amenities

    The facilities for the most part were clean but were in a sketchy neighborhood where bums were seen at random times all over the street. There was some hair left in the bathroom from a previous tenant. The view was of a dingy backyard of an adjacent property. The hotel was not well insulated allowing you to hear other guests at random times. Stairwell smelt of smoke. Check in was easy at night but dine through a privacy window with no admittance to the lobby in the cold. WiFi was limited, no amenities and vending machines on site.
