“you missed 'recession' oportunity income”

  , Banner Elk
Sorry to say, your manager really missed an opportunity to have me stay on because they wouldn't 'meet' another 'close by' hotel's pricing which would have netted 'your' hotel MORE $ (from having solo traveler visiting the area for 4 more days beyond the 2 spent at your hotel ) so I checked out after the first 2 days & went elsewhere. Your HOJO's was located directly within an assortment of 'other' hotels off highway I-95 on Abercorn St. within Savannah.I told the front desk person if your hotel could meet a lower price hotel nearby with ALL of the same amenities your hotel offered, you could of had my business. Instead, the front desk person called the Manager at this location who apparently wasn't an asute business person. I therefore checked out & went elsewhere for the remeainder of my stay. During an obvious recession with a solo traveler who doesn't want housekeeping until they've left, it was a missed opportunity to have me stay on & continue to enjoy my vacation visit since I was gone from my room on average atleast 10hrs a day.I'd call that a low maintenance guest & would have 'grabbed' at that opportunity if I had been the Manager.This is one 'remark/feedback' I can offer. Another: there was NO MICRO in room when I initially checked in (evening of Wed 5/15!?) Apparently, housekeeping/maintenance doesn't stock rooms with them.Odd indeed. The night desk folks don't write enough on their notes to the incoming morning front desk folks either which would have avoided me being unnecessarily wakened early the following morning bleary eyed when someone had started pounding on my door with a mico to deliver.I made it very CLEAR with the night desk person I would call THEM when I was ready to leave the room for the day so they could just GO IN & install one. Instead, they came banging at door totally ignoring the DO NOT DISTURB sign the night front desk person told me to put on the door, so I wouldn't be DISTURBED. I needed to sleep in from long drive down to Savannah from the mountains of NC...so told night person I'd CALL THEM when I was READY to leave the next day telling her I did not wish to be DISTURBED the following morning.When I returned from being 'out' the following day, I received a 'beat up' micro with dents on it....not my idea of a 'renovated' hotel (as advertised).I also found the front lobby door LOCKED (keeping guests from being able to use the computer which is there for them to be able to use). Another ODD so I caou
