"Terrible manager and front desk."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Donald the hotel manger is a pompous ass. Marisol at the front desk is a complete liar and should be ashamed for ?not recalling? a lengthy conversation with me. The hotel windows are paper thin and my 10 year old son lost his footing on the curtain and braced himself with the window. The window shattered. A window shouldn't shatter because a child braced himself with it! The hotel would not take any responsibility and charged me $150. Donald was extremely rude and wouldn't even agree to splitting any of the cost. Then come to find out his lying front desk worker, Marisol, wouldn't even tell Donald the truth about our conversation of splitting the cost. On top of that, the report the front desk worker put into the notes was that my son was jumping on the bed which is what caused the window to shatter. Completely false. The rooms are completely outdated, the wall unit air conditioner is rickety and loud and the beds are hard as rocks. The only thing the hotel has going for it would be the two very pleasant female waitresses at the restaurant that were great with us and our group. We had a group of us there which included 6 room reservations for two nights, the same group at three full meals at the hotel and spent a ton of money. The fact that they wouldn't take any responsibility for the window is ridiculous and they should be ashamed!

"Unreasonable Hotel Manager and Lying Front Desk Worker."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We had an incident where my 10 year old son was walking between the bed and the window which is a tight space. My son's feet got tangled up in the curtain and he fell over and braced himself with the window. The entire window shattered into pieces. I immediately reported it to the front desk. The next morning I went to address it with Marisol at the front desk. I said the window must have already been cracked or it's in incredibly poor condition to have it shatter so easily. She and I spoke for a while and she was going to call her hotel manager. I said maybe we can split the cost because I feel we were not 100% responsible. A 10 year old boy bracing himself on the window should not cause it to shatter! She then said to me "how much do you think it reasonable for splitting the cost?" I said I would split with the hotel but she was going to check with her manager. The manager said we were still responsible for the entire cost. I spoke with Donald the manager and he was totally unreasonable and rude. He says Marisol does not recall our conversation about splitting the cost which is a complete LIE. We spent an entire weekend at the hotel at four full meals with a group of 6 7 hotel rooms. We will never come back and they will certainly get negative reviews from all.

Overall Score2.0/ 5
Rooms were nice sized. No one answered the phone until 2:30pm so NO early check in. Smoker in the room next door, smoked on the rail.. Issues with reservations because of phone service?. Could be a great place with better management.
