    The only highlight of this hotel is a man named James. Everything else was crap. Other staff were very dismissive. The room had peeling wall paper. Everything is dark, old and dingy. Neighborhood is sketchy as well.

    Refused to refund my stay even though I was unable to travel due to corona virus. This rating applies to both Expedia and The Hotel Whitcomb. Both of these companies had the choice to do the right thing, neither did. Not only will I never use Expedia or this hotel again, I will make it my mission to dissuade others from doing so. I hope both of these disgusting profiteering companies cease to operate ASAFP.

    The hotel was nice inside with beautiful wood carved

    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Staff & service

    The rooms look much larger in the pictures, it was challenging move past the overly large chair. The lobby was clean, most staff were inviting. There was however one night staff the called my partner an impolite name to say the very least which made her very uncomfortable and upset. I also just checked my credit card and there is a $60 charge from the hotel eventhough we left the room in ok condition (trash in trash cans, all dirty laundry in a pile) I will not be staying at this hotel again.
