Additional Notes

Complaint: My fiance, future mother in law, and myself booked a 3 night stay at this Rodeway Inn in Seattle, Wa from September 5 to September 8. I booked the room through ****************. When i spoke to the sales rep from **************** he told me they only had "2 rooms" left for that weekend. This led me to believe I was making a solid decision for a hotel stay. Upon arrival the clerk did not take a credit card on file to be charged at the end of our stay instead we were charged before ever stepping foot in our room. Which I found to be odd. We got to our room and there was a strong urine smell in the bathroom. I asked the clerk 3 times, my fiance once for two extra pillows. Each time being told the "maid would bring" them, they never came. While outside in the parking lot I was approached by a ********** at 10am on a Saturday morning, who was working at the hotel on the 2nd floor asking me if i knew her "**** ****". We watched drug deals happen, a guest who lived there with a camera pointing at the door so he knew who was coming. I even watched the manager/owner go into this drug dealer/users room. I was approached by a drug addict as well. We were so uncomfortable we didnt want to go outside. We asked for a refund and they said "5 to 7 business days" we were put in a terrible position of being FORCED to stay there since they charged our card upon arriving. After contacting choice hotels they were able to refund us one night of $71.60, with their advice to call the hotel for the remainder refund we did, the manager/owner laughed at us and said "no". We in the end were forced to stay at a hotel where drug deals and hookers work, were afraid to leave our room, dealt with no customer service at all, and now am being told too bad you can't get a refund. Even walking from our hotel room to the car was an experience we were uncomfortable with. Had the hotel just taken our card number and not charged it upon arrival we would have left and found a hotel that was, SAFE. Product_Or_Service: hotel stay

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund I want the Rodeway Inn North on Aurora Ave in Seattle to refund us the other remaining two nights of our stay. The remaining after **************** refunds us $71.60 is in the amount of $163.40. I want rodeway inn north to refund us those other two nights. Their hotel is not one I would ever recommend even my worst enemy to stay in. The fact I was approached by a ****** alone is a terrible disgrace for **************** to have their name attached to this hotel.
