2/10 Poor

Do Not Book
I have NEVER had a place charge my card before I get there, UNAUTHORIZED. I called to see what happened and come to find out I was staying for a total of 3 nights and got charged for 4. I have tried to contact management but she’s “always cleaning rooms”. The front desk can’t form a sentence to help, then when I get a call back regarding the issue, I’m told that I need to wait on a call back?? No one seems to know what is going on. It was very unprofessional and I will NOT be back or book with anyone in association with this company. Absolutely ridiculous.
