Verified Reviews of The Atwood

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Turned away from “closed due to Covid” by hotel staff."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Pretty shocking experience I had. I was going to book online but I had a question about the beds so I called the hotel directly to ask. Staff on the phone said they could book it for me with an additional discount so I did, more than a month ahead of my stay. I received a welcome text the day of my check in letting me know what time I can check in. Arrived in the dark at the hotel with a locked office door, staff inside. Staff came to tell me they're closed due to Covid and I should contact the third party I booked with. I told him I booked directly with the hotel and received a welcome text with a check in time. He said I should've received an email telling me they're closed and told me to get my shit off the table outside or he'd have me removed. My sister was sitting on a bench while this was going on and pointed out that there are what looks like medical staff in scrubs gowned up and masked up going from room to room. I called my credit company to report this and request a refund. They had me on hold while they called the office staff, same person I spoke with, who was unhelpful and rude to them as well. Feeling pretty stranded, my sister and I rolled our luggage through the parking lot to ”Crust Kitchen” where the staff was gracious to try and help us out. They said the hotel had been closed for a while already and they had the impression that the medical center nearby was housing overflow Covid patients. Unfortunately we booked a not very nice hotel down the road for our stay which was a big bummer.

"So close to everything."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
During our stay at the hotel our room was kept very clean. Shower water pressure wasn't that great but it did the job. If need to I will stay there again.
