Additional Notes

Complaint: On april 19th I checked into the Comfort inn located in Vancouver Washington. I chose them since we had stayed there on other occasions and had always had a pleasant experience. On this occasion the sefvice was nice, the hotel acceptable and the stay enjoyable. I was shocked a couple of days later when an additional charge of $271.00 had been added to my card. I contacted the hotel as soon as I saw the additional charge and was then informed that the staff felt that someone had smoked in the room. I explain that No-one in the room that night smoked in the room. the person I spoke with assured me that they had evidence that smoking had in fact occurred. I requested the evidence and she just reiterated her response. I know that no-one smoked in that room and I am very disappointed that someone decided to charge my account without even notifying me, let alone having any justification to do so. I would like a refund of the $271.00 that was taken from my account.

Desired Settlement: I would like the charge of $271.00 credited back to my account.

Business Response: ****** ***** did not even stay in the room. ****** ***** was the occupant, in which she provided an authorization form for all charges. The room was inspected by the Executive Housekeeper, Assistant General Manager and the General Manager. This is common for all room smoking charges when guests are suspected of smoking in the rooms. Room 220 was their room and it was un-rentable for the next that next night due to having to treat the room for smoking damages.

Consumer Response:

Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because: no-one smoked in that room. My son has never smoked in any room of any building. I am deeply disappointed in your response and although we have stayed in your hotel many times in the past ten years we will make certain that this does not happen again. I will certainly never set foot in your business and

i  will make certain to tell everyone anout your busniess practices.

****** *****

Business Response:



I apologize for the frustration this may cause, but we have very strict rules in place just for these incidents. It is a very lengthy and procedural process to go through before deciding that we have to charge to treat the room for smoking damages. It has been something that we have always practiced since we have opened as a Comfort Inn, which was barely 6 years ago, not 10 years ago by the way. I am sorry you feel this way, and I hope you can understand our stance on this. 

Consumer Response:

Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because: there was no smoking in that room on the night you claim, as I stated before I will not stay in any of your hotels and I will be certain to let everyone know, whether by survey or word of mouth that I will not recemmend your establishment, I will recommend any other hotel.

I am extremely disappointed in having stayed at what I thought was a reputable establishment.

The guest she is talking about has been here for over a year and is grand fathered in. Guest is constantly late on payment for room stating they don't have the money yet.
