Additional Notes

Complaint: So I needed somewhere to go fast and I'm out in Seattle by myself called a few motels and they were all booked the last motel I called told me to call Columbus Motor Inn so I did... I'm not from Seattle and I guess I'm just used to my city which is Minneapolis where they show you the hotel before you pay for it that did not take place at the Columbus Motor Inn the receptionist barely spoke english only thing he told me was it's no a.c. and it's free cable and wifi did not tell me that the screen was broke on the window there was going to be spiders nets and ants in every corner of the room and on the bed and chair also he did not tell me that there would be blood all over the toilet seat the room was just disgusting and i refused to stay there so i went to the receptionist and told him that Im leaving and I want my money back he told me that ive been here for a couple of hours and should have came back 20 mins after seeing the room mind you I was not being mean or nasty towards him just voicing my complaint so he went to go get the manager i voiced my opinion to him he got loud and rude and told me no refunds ever so you can.leave if you don't like the room so I did I just want my money back I was only there for an hour and it was not liveable I'm going through hard times right now but I could never lay my head in such a nasty place. The manager was just really rude when I asked for the number to the person who actually owns this place he would not give it to me I even.searched for the.owners with no luck I just thought that was unfair everyone has a boss that can be contacted especially when the employee is just down right rude and disrespectful
