Scammer hotel

DO NOT STAY HERE. These people like to trick you to take more money from you. Cancelled my reservation within 24 hours even though Hotels.com had booked and confirmed me. Told me they were having a payment issue. Made me book a suite room for more money and said they did not have any of the regular rooms available even though I saw an unoccupied regular room on the way to the suite I had to purchase for more or else I would have been stranded. Hotels.com won't give me my loyalty points or acknowledge this wasn't my fault even though I was cheated, made spend more money, and then was not compensated even with my loyalty points for this reservation. Stay away from these scammers. Lastly there was a lot of sketchy business going on around the hotel. Highly recommend not to bring family here.
