This was a normal room you would find for the price. It was clean and had all the usual amenities. The only reason I don't think it gets 5 stars is because the unit we were in didn't have individual air conditioning. It was set...More

We reserved a room several months ago, reserved with a cc and had a conformation number for August 20, 2017 (for the solar eclipse). At the time we reserved, clearly whomever we spoke to wasn't aware of the event as he asked us what was going on, why so many were reserving for then. We called last night to verify our reservation and lo and behold, no reservation! We got some babbling run around about computers and double booking and the owner/ manager basically telling us why we wouldn't want to stay there ("we're just a small place downtown and we don't have many amenities"). Then we're told we'd be called back the next morning, which of course we weren't. The question I have is, are you willing to admit that you canceled our reservation so you could raise the rate and rent it to someone else?
