a traveler from Travelocity.com
on June 29, 2008
I like getting value for my dollar. So when the clerk at the front desk told me I could save $20 if I drove back to the welcome center (6 miles) to pick up the traveler's savings coupon, I didn't mind. I was a little concerned that when I got there it was closed, but (luckily) there were a couple of Room Saver brochures at the door. The room was nice enough. I was a little miffed when I found the shampoo bottle seal was broken and the bottle was empty, but no big deal. Then the A/C sounded like running water all night. I wasn't surprised when it quit working by morning. When I woke up (a little warmer than I wanted to be...it WAS Mississippi in June!), I noticed that the smoke detector was hanging off of the wall with no battery. A little scary... I got up and dressed to walk over to Cracker Barrel to eat. I usually place a "do not disturb" sign on the door when I leave and plan to come back, but there was none. I dropped my luggage in the car and planned to go back, watch TV, enjoy some coffee and leave. I returned from Cracker Barrel to find the room turned upside down. All of the pillows and bed linens were all over the chairs, the towels were gone, the drink I had in the refrigerator was gone....I HAD NOT CHECKED OUT! I decided it was time to leave. I asked the manager when check out was (11 am....it was only 8 am). When I asked why housekeeping was in my room, she said they assumed I was gone. She offered me another room for 3 hours, but that was silly. Not safe. Wouldn't stay there again!
