Poor 2.0
Deceitful charges
Issues with extra charges, I called the premises to check before hand & was told a set price. On that advice I booked the hotel, then when I arrived I was charged $120 further. I explained that was illegal & immoral, the woman agreed & dropped the charges. Then after a day she called me repeatedly & said if I won’t pay (the prices altered between staff too???) they will take me to court!!! Very unprofessional & deceitful. Otherwise a nice location & decent establishment
