Verified Reviews of Home Towne Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Lack of Service"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Complaints were ignored and room phones were not repaired after 7 requests in 7 days. I quit trying when I saw that there would be nothing done. Door card keys often malfunctioned requiring multiple trips downstairs. Washing machines were out and no soap in dispensers. The beds were good and the rooms fine, but lack of service was poor.
(Long term stay guest, booked 1 room), from US flag
01-May-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Mar 27 to Mon Apr 27 2015 at a $54.99 group rate (53% discount).
Response from Management on 02-Aug-2015:
We thank you for your feedback and are glad you decided to come back and book with us for another visit. Your concerns with the room phones, key cards, and the guest washers and dryer all have been addressed. We look forward to your next visit.
