    Horrible Bed in Room

    Everyone was very nice and the hotel appeared to be clean. The room we were assigned had a horrible bed. Halfway through the night i woke up with my back hurting and was up the rest of the night. If i had noticed how bad that bed was when I got there I woudl have asked to change rooms, but it was the middle of the night.

    No Sympathies here

    Had an emergency in the family and grandmother ended up in hospital and they wouldn't allow me to move reservation for two weeks. I didn't ask for a refund, just a move...terrible service.

    An unsatisfactory stay in Salinas

    Unsatisfactory because: (1) Front desk clerk did not acknowledge me by saying I will be right with you after helping this guest (2) She ignored me and asked the person BEHIND me if they needed help! (3) I said I need to be checked in and she helped me then (4) She should have apologized by saying "I am sorry I thought you were with them" -- the group in front of me even though I never signed the registration (5) Perhaps she made a racially-based assumption that because I am Asian I was with the people in front of me (who were also Asian) (6) She failed to make me feel welcome and did not thank me for choosing to stay at their hotel (7) There was no microwave in the room (8) The water in the room (#315) never got hot -- it was only lukewarm (9) No mute button on the TV remote

    I went out of town with my boyfriend and my cousin and her fiancé tagged along. Both our rooms had lukewarm water so our shower wasn’t great. The locations a little sketchy, too.
