I wasn't given the chance to check in. Right away, the owner is telling to go to the motel around the corner where there can give me a king size bed vs the queen size they had. I did go over to check the other facility and I wouldn't even put it on a scale rating. It was Getto looking, the room that was shown to us, smelled nasty and the desk employee Disgustedly Rude & Obnoxious with his Words. I went back to talk with the Tropic Owner ask why he wanted us to stay the Getto Motel...Well as it turns out, he give my reservation to a person that wanted to stay an additional day. So, needless to say, I had to drive two hours home since I didn't have a place to stay the night. It was such an inconvenience. My reservation were made two months prior and I feel that I should have had top priority over someone who decides to add an additional night. Tropic will not be getting any business from me in the future. No Hospitality Etiquette.
