Verified Reviews of Heartland Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Feeling Unwelcome at the heartland inn."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We've never written a poor review for a hotel before. Until now, our stays have offered enough amenities and kind customer service to make up for any disappointments. And we're sensitive to the stresses and risks hotel workers face as they work through a global pandemic. But even with all this considered, we feel compelled to note that our stay at Heartland Inn was the worst we've experienced in fourteen years together. Here are the pros and cons (listing cons first): Cons (most of which can be filed under poor customer service with the night staff at the hotel desk): When we arrived in the evening on 8/13, the deskperson ignored us at first. We had to get her attention even though she was sitting right in front of us. She was abrupt and expressionless. Then she gave us the wrong room (we booked a room with a hot tub and didn't receive that). When we returned to the desk to fix the mistake, she didn't apologize or in any way acknowledge she made an error. She made a show of how irritated she was dealing with us. She did give us a key to a new room with a hot tub, for which we were thankful, but we felt unwelcome at the hotel. There were no hangers in the closet. We were attending a wedding the following day and needed to hang a blazer, a dress shirt and a dress and a few other articles of clothing. We figured this would be no problem. We called the desk and requested about five or six hangers. The deskperson, not the same one as before, said there were no more hangers (!) in the hotel. We told her that we just had this poor experience with the last deskperson about getting the wrong room and we just had a long day of travel and just wanted this simple basic thing. She said she'd try to find us hangers. About twenty minutes later, she showed up to our room with about twenty hangers without hooks on their tops, so they wouldn't work in our closet, which required standard hangers. She said she'd try to look for normal hangers. Hungry from our long trip, we left to grab some food. Before doing this, we stopped at the desk to inform the second deskperson that we were leaving and someone could just place the hangers in our room if they found them while we're out. She said she was too busy with other things. We understand that people get busy, customer service can be stressful and finding hangers might slip on a list of immediate priorities, but we didn't appreciate her attitude about it, like we were hassling her over this basic accommodation. Anyway, after we ate at a nearby establishment, we bought our own hangers at a Walgreens (weren't for sale exactly, but the counterperson enjoyed our absurd goofy tale and let us purchase a few stray hangers from a rack). Good thing we did that: there were no hangers in the room when we returned. On the second night, our room key cards didn't work. When we mentioned this to a night deskperson (the third), she said it was because we kept the cards too close to a chip credit card or too close to our phones. At no point were we warned that this could happen. She fixed the problem but she was a bit mean about it and didn't apologize. We've never encountered this key card problem at any other hotel. There was hardly any room in the standing shower for soap or shampoo. There were no towel racks. The hair dryer didn't work. There were only three pillows on the king sized bed (should be at least four). There were barely any sheet coverings, just one sheet and a thin comforter. The room was gloomy with poor lighting. Pros: Our checkout manager on Sunday morning, Antonio, was courteous and listened to all our grievances on our final day. He said he'd be upset too if he encountered this kind of service (and said he saw a bunch of normal hangers in the back room). It almost felt therapeutic to talk with him. He was thoughtful and extremely competent. The deskperson who brought us the useless hangers was friendly when she came to our room. She told us about a dinner option nearby and we appreciated that. Our room was clean (fresh sheets) and when I asked housekeeping staff for towels, they gave them to us and were cordial. We enjoyed the hot tub. The iron worked well. It's important to reiterate that most of the problems we experienced would have been tolerable if not for the rudeness. That was the worst of it: the sense that we were unreasonable when we addressed these basic issues with the night staff at the hotel desk. We were hoping for nice place to relax after attending our niece's wedding. Instead we ended up with a lot of meaningless stress.

The hotel staff were quite friendly and everything was clean and up to date. We had a double queen room with a recliner and it met our needs very well. We appreciate how close it was to the hospital and how easy it was to get meals nearby.
