Additional Notes

Complaint: The *********** advertises its weekly rate of $250 on***********. It is stated right in the ad that the rooms are pet friendly and the 'dogs allowed' option is checked. When I arrived, I was told the manager had to 'do' the weekly rate. I asked if the night paid would be applied to the weekly rate. He stated something like, 'I'm sure the manager will work something out with you.' It should be noted that I requested that he contact the manager at that time. I have a web capture of the*********** ad as it appeared on 9/21 at 10am.When I contacted the manager in the morning, she said that she would give us the weekly rate, but that she would not apply the amount we had already paid. I explained that we were told differently. At that point, the manager became very stubborn, difficult, and rude. She said that only she can 'do' the weekly rate, that she didn't let some people have the rate. At this point, She said she would inquire with 'corporate' if we could apply what we had already paid.After an hour, I contacted her and she informed me that she decided that we could not have the weekly rate with the dog. This hadn't been in dispute. The dispute was whether or not she would apply the first night to the weekly rate. She claimed that the advertisement did not indicated dogs allowed, though quite clearly it does. I'm not sure why this manager was so rude and seemingly discriminating, or rather, arbitrarily determining who can and can not have the advertised weekly rate. Nor was it clear why she changed her mind and refused us the weekly rate. We would have never stayed the night at the high rate for the poorly appointed room if we had not been informed that the manager would 'work something out with us.' The room was dirty, particularly the carpet. The outside doors did not lock, which seemed very unsafe. We only stayed at the hotel because of the advertised $250 per week rate. It should be noted that the manager changed her ad on***********, but after I saved it as a web archive. Product_Or_Service: Room 142 ***********

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund I would like a refund of the difference between what a night at the weekly rate would be and what we paid, roughly $65 including prorated tax.
