Additional Notes

Complaint: We made reservations for two nights at Motel 6 and requested an ADA room because I have a great deal of difficulty climbing stairs. This was approved. Friday night we had dinner at ***** in Seattle and called Motel 6 to say we were coming as it was later than we thought it would be. They assured us our reservation was good until 11PM. We arrived at Motel 6 in Issaquah at about 9:30PM, but no one was in their office. About ten minutes later a car drove up with two women in it and parked next to our car outside the office. The receptionist got out of the car and went into the office. She said there was no reservation for us. She called the manager and was told they gave the ADA room to someone else because they tried to call us and we didn't answer the phone. He explained we were at dinner and had our phones turned off. The manager said to give us $20 off. She said it could not be changed and they had one room left on the second floor that we could have. Not having much choice we took it and I struggled up the stairs. The room was miserable. The small refrigerator was leaking water on the floor. My husband called the office and she said there was nothing she could do because she was by herself with about 206 rooms occupied in the motel. We put a towel down in front to soak up the water but water leaked out the side and my shoes got wet. There was a minimum of towels, one blanket with no spares and one pillow each. Everything was very worn and the lighting was not adequate.The next morning we complained to the manager and she agreed to take $20 off our bill but when my husband canceled the reservation for the night, she put the $20 back on. The cancellation was in the allowed time frame set by Motel 6.Today our debit account was charged $173.20 and $73.06 was credited back to the account. According to our calculations they added back the $20 credit for losing our reservation and the tax for the night we didn't stay. They owe us $27.54.

Desired Settlement: We want a refund of $27.54.A more fair refund, from our perspective would be a refund for the one night we stayed, but we are sure they will not offer that as customer service is not a value for them. We will certainly never stay in a Motel 6 again.
