“take my word of advice and never stay here.”

  , Mckinleyville
I am a local to the area, so I knew the neighborhood well. I was looking for inexpensive place to have a little, "staycation" with my family. I don't normally go on these review sites, but here it goes! When arriving at the hotel, my daughter had an hour before she had to be somewhere, and wanted to go swimming. I was trying to get checked in promptly, so that she would have time to swim. I went to the front desk, to discover no person manning the it. I had to seek the front desk person out, by chasing him down. I had waited nearly 30 mins. before going and finding him. The morning of our check out, we awoke at 9:05 AM, and attempted to get coffee from the lobby. We were told that we could not have coffee because it was after 9am. Then when leaving, and I had a very important meeting that I could not be late to, I was instructed the lobby doors were locked and I could not leave the premisses. I had told the staff member that I had an appointment, and they told me that i could not leave, and they would not open the door. The staff would tell my why I could not leave. There was also people waiting outside to be serviced on waiting for the doors to be unlocked. I don't even want to go all the reasons why this is wrong. I will say that it is a health and safety issue and the business could be shut down, with a simple call to the fire martial. The staff were extremely rude and would not conman amenities that were promised. The pool was dirty and the bathroom smelled awful!!!!
