Additional Notes

Complaint: I checked into the City Center and went to my room. After about 15 minutes of crying and wondering were i was going to go i went down stairs and asked for a refund. The man at the desk said his boss does not like to give refunds and i used a debit card so he would just have to put it on there.i was refused, i explained to him that i was very uncofortable at this place and i have never seen anything like this before. The floors leading upstairs were filthy, the bathrooms looked like they were never cleaned, when i pulled the sheets back on the bed to look, they had hair all over them and you could tell they were not clean. the room floor looked like it had never been swept.the window in the room did not close, i pushed it up with my hand because there was no window cranks to open or close it. i agian went to the front desk and asked to please refund at least 2 of the 3 days i had payed for, agian he said i can not do that, it was one of the owners pet peeves and he couldnt, i asked for the owners phone number, he said the owner was out of town, it was $177.00 for 3 nights and i would just like 2 nights payment back. that place should be inspected by the health department and the police. it is dangerous and filthy.i decided this was not a place i should be as a single woman, i called a cab and the cab driver told me they hardle ever respond to calls coming from this place and that it is mainly drug users and homeless people. I was refunded my $10 dollar deposit to my debit card, so i assume it will be just as easy to refund me my 2 nights stay. please help...

Desired Settlement: I am seeking the reembursment of the 2 night stay. I payed for three but since i went up to the room and made calls for about 20 minutes i will settle for the 2 nights, a total of $118

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/07/14) */ Contact Name and Title: ***** ****** Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX All guests are given the opportunity to view the room before checking in. They are also read and shown a highlighted copy of our registration where it is clearly stated "NO REFUNDS" WE are one of the most inexpensive motels in the Anchorage area. I will not dignify her insults to the property with a response and any statements made by cab drivers etc are not relative to her complaint. We will not be offering her a refund for her time here. However I will offer her a a 2 night credit if she so desires. Thank you
