I booked this hotel to do some work and also attend a seminar. The night before I booked I called the hotel to ask what time is the earliest I could check-in. I was informed by a lady 10:30am is the earliest. I proceeded to make the booking. The next day I called as I was approaching the hotel nd I was attended by a very rude front desk staff by the name of Brian. he told me a completely different set of rules. He was such a bully and extremely rude. You can check in now but you have to get out by 6pm. Otherwise the check-In is at 2pm. Even after explaining to him he refused to budge. Basically he was telling me take it or leave it. I asked to speak with the manager to which Brian mentioned he would say the same thing as he did. I told him I'll take my chances to which Brian replied he's fast asleep and does not wished to be disturbed. I told him I was on the way. As I approached, he was so cocky. He told he would allow me to check-In at 12pm. I agreed and told him that I need to take the seminar zoom call and as such I would be waiting for 12pm in the lobby. To that he mentioned I am not allowed to loiter. I was not loitering as I am guest. He then calls the police citing I was causing trouble. Fortunately, with the help of the police, I was able to speak with the Manager who kept apologising for the staff's incompetence. The manager mentioned that he should have called for the police for this minor issue. The manager then allowed me to check-in immediately. The very manager Brian mentioned that his manager will say the same thing as he did. Obviously the manager knows everything about customer service. Brian needs to go for further training as he obviously thinks that he owns the hotel. I have never met anyone as cocky, ride and obnoxious as him. He was such a bully. the temperature was broken and when I asked him about it, he refused to answer. So much for being compliant to Covid-19 measures.

Everything about this stay was lackluster, starting from the fact that the room didn't resemble the picture on the website, and going on to the missing shower curtain, absence of toilet paper and toothpaste, the thin walls through which the noisy neighbors have us a show and the refrigerator that mysteriously turns itself off automatically, leaving a chilly puddle on the floor. It's an 8-foot windowless cube, occupied mostly by the stiff bed. I guess that's what we should have expected for the price. Good for a single traveler on a budget and without an appetite for amenities. This stay was a baby step up from a hostel.
