This was a nightmare hotel. The final price was $20 higher than was advertised online. Money was stolen out of wallet in the room, nothing was done all because the front desk said it was our responsibility to not have anything of value in our locked room. The housekeeper only made one of the beds because she said it was...

I am truly sorry that you encountered the problems you discussed in your review. While it is true that guests should NEVER leave valuables in a hotel room (at this property or ANY other), the fact that you had to endure rudeness is NEVER appropriate. It is always our policy, anytime something is missing or stolen, to file a police...

Thank you for letting us know about your recent experience at our hotel. I apologize if anyone was rude--that should NEVER happen.

I'm actually staying in this hotel as I write this. I understand I'm paying less to stay here but when I showed up with my reservation on my phone I was told the price was wrong and I couldn't have it for that price and I could go find somewhere else to stay. I found that crazy that you would...
