When we arrived to check in we were told that a bride and groom were in our room and checked out late and we would have to wait 20 minutes for it to be cleaned. Then when the clerk tried to check us in the room we were told that an extended quest who had been there for 60 days was in the room for another nite and the room wasnt available anymore. And then told me that the girl who took the reservation was an idiot and didnt know what she was doing. He tried to rent us 2 rooms instead with no fridge and microwave for a higher price I said i wanted the same ammenities and price that i booked for. He seemed to be mad/annoyed and argued with me asking me what more do you want? i said i wanted the suite that i booked. He checked the computer again and said that it looked like the manager had rented our room to a friend at a discounted price of 50.00. He said the manager was an idiot and he couldnt do that and we could have that room afterall. He gave me the keys and said we could go to the room. Which we didnt understand, if there was someone in that room how could we go straight to the room without them leaving and the room being cleaned. When we got to the room it had one king bed, not two queen beds which i booked. We went back to the front desk, and the desk clerk informed me that the cleaning staff must have taken out a bed, which wasnt right and they couldnt do that. Then again he tried to rent me two standard rooms without a fridge and microwave for more money than i booked at. I refused saying that i wanted the equivalent of what i booked for the same price. The "nite audit" guy came out from the back and got involved and told the clerk to give me two rooms for the reservation price and to give me a frige and a microwave. The clerk argued, but finally agreed. The nite audit guy said they would waive the "stupid hotel tax" and suggested that i pay then so i wouldnt be overcharged later. He gave me a price of 78.00 per nite. The clerk charged me 175.90 and the nite audit guy said to him not to charge me any of the tax because he had already told me the price. The clerk just said i dont know what youre talking about/i cant hear you. On the way to my room the nite audit clerk stopped me to tell me that the manager was an idiot and he needs to be fired, and what i went through wasnt right, and that he would get me a better deal and bring me some money back to my room with a new receipt. He never did. It took over and hour to check in.
