"Don't believe the front desk's statements"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
My family recently booked rooms at this establishment and had reserved two rooms approx. 1 1/2 months in advance. I called the hotel and verbally requested that the rooms be placed either side by side or across the hall from each other. I informed them that we were traveling with a child and for safety I needed rooms to be that close. I was informed that it was noted in our reservation and that it would not be a problem to place the two rooms together. I even called the hotel the night before our arrival to confirm the rooms and was told by the staff that the rooms were 119 and 121. When we arrived the next day we were then told the rooms were actually 200 and 212: room 200 was at beginning of hallway and 212 was almost at the opposite end of the hallway. The desk clerk didn't know why the previous person gave me the incorrect room numbers from the night before and of course I was told they were all booked up and would not try to help with changing the rooms. So we spent the weekend telling our child to stay in our room because his grandparents room was too far away. Why did I waste my time calling in my request and calling the night before to confirm the room locations to be told a lie. Note: we also found a baby roach crawling across the desk in our room. Never again will I rent from the Super 8 Gainesville!
