“upgrade, overcharges and nickles and dimes”

  , Loveland, Co
I got off to a good start when I checked in and was told that we were being upgraded to the presidential suite. I was then presented the guest form to confirm my rate. They wanted to charge me over 60% more than my confirmed reservation. When I pointed it out to the desk clerk, the correction was politely and quickly made. We were also told that the pool filter was not working, leaving the water greyish, but we could still use the pool if we wanted. The presidential suite was obviously more spacious, but the TVs in the two rooms were both older analog technology. The bathroom was missing basic supplies (i.e., no shampoo). Cleaning supplies (i.e., spray cleaner bottle) was left in the middle of the floor. The bedding was clean, but the bedspread appeared to be quite old and in definite need of cleaning. Breakfast the next morning was a disappointment. There was trouble with the waffle maker, the regular coffee dispenser was too small as it was always empty. Once again, the bill under my door was higher than my confirmation. When I questioned the bill at the front desk I was told that a security safe charge had been added. I had to ask to have the charge removed since I did not use the safe. I should have stayed elsewhere.
