    Scammers! Making fraudulent charges to make money!
    My 11 year old son and I were staying overnight because he had medical testing down the road early the next morning. There were drunk guys slamming doors all night, yelling profanities, and pounding on their door yelling at their friend to let them in at 1 a.m.. We left our room in great condition even making the beds then leaving the keys with the front desk clerk at 7:45 a.m.. Within a few hours I noticed an extra charge on my account. I called and asked what it was for and the woman responded without even asking my name or room number that I left the room trashed and vomit all over so they had to clean the carpets. I told her absolutely not! She said that I could speak to the general manager and put me on hold. After a few minutes she said he was busy and would call me back. After almost 5 hours and four calls to the hotel I finally got in touch with the manager. He claimed he had pictures. I told him about the night before and so the maid must have mixed up the room numbers but it was not our room. He said he would look into it and call me back. 2 hours later after no call my husband and I went to the hotel to examine the room ourselves. He refused, screamed in my face, aggressively put his hand in my face, and when my husband asked him to please not do that he stormed away to the back saying to leave because he was calling the police. We talked to the police and left. Unfortunately, since it was a civil matter there was nothing we could do. They are scammers.

    Dangerous bathtubs
    My major issue is with Hotels.com - I specifically asked for handicapped accessible rooms as the standard room has bathtubs - not stall showers. I was traveling with older family members and this was a requirement from the start. The hotel did not have these rooms available, and were unable to provide any help. I would also note that the bathtubs did NOT have any anti-skid or anti-slip surface making showers especially dangerous.

    Exceptional10.0
    I think the staff was super friendly. They gave us a room upgrade for free when we checked in. The only thing that was difficult was parking. The parking lot is small and you have to walk far to get in. I thought our room was very clean.
