2/10 Poor

Do not stay here! Terrible service and experience!
DO NOT STAY HERE!! Worst experience at a hotel ever. Actually, this is not even a hotel! It’s a student housing property masking as a hotel!! I checked in and was told to park at the bottom of the garage, but not given any directions on how to get to the garage. Once I got to the garage, the elevator was not work and they put me on the 6th floor. After climbing up the stairs with my luggage, I got to the room to find the AC was broken. I immediately took my luggage back down all the stairs to the front desk. The girl at the desk proceeded to tell me that she knew the elevator was broken but didn’t offer me a solution. I asked for a refund and she called her manager and got the authorization to give me a full refund. I left within 20 minutes of checking in and booked another hotel. 3 days later I received a call from a girl named Emma who stated that the refund would be processed. I received a confirmation but the refund was on $53.75 but I paid $310.19. I called her back and Emma said I was only getting 20% refunded because I allegedly stayed a night (which I never did.) Terrible service! DO NOT STAY HERE!!
