Complaint: We checked into a home managed by Miss Kitty's fishing getaways on June 17, 2014. We arrived at the property around 6:00pm and quickly dropped our luggage and headed out to dinner. While we were out, we stopped to buy groceries to stock the house with for the week. After we returned to the house, and began to put things away and turn in for the night, we realized that things were not clean. The floors were filthy (I have pictures), the sheets on the downstairs bed had pee stains (I have pictures), and the hand towels had not been changed from the previous guests. (The hand towels had sunscreen smeared on them.) The bathtub downstairs had to be cleaned as it was dirty. The sinks downstairs still had toothpaste globs left from the previous guests. We immediately began cleaning, and after my sister-in-law headed to wal-mart to buy new sheets, I decided to leave a message for Miss Kitty's. By now it was after 12:00am, and I was surprised that **** answered. She seemed irritated, but did offer to send house keeping. I told her that there was no need because we had already cleaned and my sister-in-law had already left to purchase new sheets. She said that the head of housekeeping, *****, would call me in the morning. I spoke with ***** the following morning and she apologized for the mess. I asked for a partial refund and I spend rest of the week trying to get a return call from ****. She never returned my call, but did send an email offering to refund the cleaning fee only. With all taxes and fees, we paid $394.77 per night. I asked for a one night refund for all the trouble that we went through. **** was unwilling to work with us. After researching this company further, I have seen numerous complaints and terrible reviews all across the web. I feel like this company does not care about their customers at all. All the complaints I read were related to cleanliness of the properties. I really don't know how a company like this stays in business.
Desired Settlement: A refund of the price of one night inclusive of all fees and taxes, which is $394.77.
These guests checked into the house at 5:46 pm on June 17 and made multiple trips in and out of the house before contacting me at around midnight on the emergency after hours line. She complained of stains on the sheets and dirty floors. She told me she had washed the sheets in question and that the stain did not come out so she went to Walmart and bought a new set. I told her that I would have housekeeping contact her in the morning to take care of any housekeeping issues that she had. My housekeeping supervisor called her in the morning and offered to send someone out to the property, but she declined. After that, the guest sent me a long text with a list of housekeeping complaints. One of her major complaints was that her white socks got dirty when walking on the floor. I explained to her that after housekeeping is done, and inspector walks through the house and stocks it and prior to her check in that maintenance was there to change light bulbs so it is not unexpected that white socks will get dirty. I also told her that I was sure that housekeeping had washed the sheets, but that there was a stain that did not come out with washing. Housekeepers are supposed to report bad stains to the supervisor so they can be replaced, but unfortunately this was not done.
