Additional Notes

Complaint: I parked my car for 3 days over July 4th long weekend and picked up on July 4th around 9 PM and when I returned to my car it was damaged.The rear bumper on driver's side had a big dent, so I took pictures and showed it to the person working there before leaving the parking lot and she also took the pictures on her phone, her name was Angelic. She asked me to call the manager the next day. I have tried to reach manager for 3 days and after 3 days she says our owner will give you a call. Waited for another day, owner didn’t call so called their office again to speak to the manager. Another person picked up the phone and said manager(Sierra C*****) no longer works here and can’t give out owner’s information. She said we are not responsible for the damage and hung up on me.

Desired Settlement: I want my car to be repaired and paid by these guys.

Additional Notes

Complaint: While dropping off our car to be held while traveling, I asked the associate at Sea-Tac Airport Value Inn and Parking how long the wait would be on our return for the shuttle to pick us up and return us to the parking lot. I was told 15 minutes. This seemed reasonable since the parking lot is about 5 minutes from the airport. After waiting over 45 minutes to be picked up and brought to the parking lot to pick up our car, it was discovered that they lost our keys. We waited over 45 minutes in the office for them to "find" them. I asked to get a refund for the seriousness of all of the terrible customer service issues we had and were denied. I spoke the next day with the manager and she was going to look into it and file a written complaint, but that never happened.

Desired Settlement: A refund.

Business Response:

Dear Sir/ Madam:


In regards to the complaint about the Sea Tac Value Inn and Parking, I have spoken to Ms ***** ****** when she had first filed the complaint with me. However after investigating and speaking with our employees, I was informed that the shuttle driver had just left the airport when she had called, therefore she was notified by our front desk that it may take longer than usual time for the driver to come back for her. And when the guest arrived at the facility, the driver did let us know that her car keys were misplaced, but were found right away. Since Ms ****** did use our parking facility so unfortunately I am unable to process any refunds as she is requesting. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Consumer Response:
Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:  The managers response is totally false.  I was not notified of a delay in being picked up and my keys were not found quickly.  If the only issue was the delay in being picked up, that would probably not have been a good enough reason to file a complaint.  I would have just not used that parking service again.  The added lost keys was over the top.  To not offer an apology and refund is unacceptable.  I'm shocked that after speaking with the manager the next day on the phone and being promised a follow up, nothing happened and she automatically believed the lies her staff told her.  I have never seen such terrible customer service.  I felt strongly enough about the incident to follow up with the BBB when the Sea-Tac parking did not.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I owed them a days rent and I called them after I got off work and told them I was on my way to pay them what I owed them and they told me they put everything I own out by the dumpster and told me don't bother and by the time I found a ride everything was gone about five thousand dollars worth of stuff and they still have my I.D. and the thing is the lady who was working at the time ****** that I could keep my stuff there but I didn't get there until eleven thirty that night and she told the night not to give me my stuff unless I paid knowing I didn't have the money but didn't say that to me when I talk to her last

Desired Settlement: I want to be reburst for everything I lost and owned between five to fifteen thousand dollars maybe a little more for pain and suffering and doing without clothes and bathroom stuff personal stuff and family stuff that's priceless and girlfriend stuff that are priceless so that's about it

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2015/01/13) */ Thank you BBB sending us this complaint. Mr. ****** did indeed check into our hotel and stayed for a few nights. If the guest would have wanted to extend his stay he would have needed to pay before 12:00 because that is when check out is. As far as his belongings we are not sure? It is all guests responsibility to take their belongings with them before they check out. Unfortunately, we can not refund Mr. ****** any amount because we are not held responsible for his personal items. He did in fact utilize our hotel during his stay because he had mail delivered to it. Mr. ****** needs to be more responsible as far as taking everything with him at check out that he feels is of valuable and not rely on others to take care of his property.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Upon arrival, I asked where my car would be parked. I was told it would be parked in a "gated lot"---when I went to pick it up, it was NOT in a gated lot.Upon arrival, I was told the shuttle to/from the airport would be available and ready to pick me up upon my return to the Seattle airport within 10-15min--I waited 45min at the airport at/near midnight, after which it took ONLY 4min to get back to the lot. There was not a "rush" of traffic at the airport when I arrived back to pick up my car. Why did it take 45min to come get me, and only 4min to get back to the parking lot--can't explain that--I did NOT get an explanation from the driver after asking. More of a brush off, and a seeming "language barrier" issue. Upon arrival, I was told my service was "valet", and that when I came back from my travels my car would be driven from the "lot" to the front office for me to get in and drive home--When I arrived back at the business around 1am, I was given the key and told that my car was in the lot, but they didn't know where. I had to search for my car around 1am in a dark parking lot in a sketchy community. Product_Or_Service: secured parking

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund Full refund of my payment:Deposit: $5.18Leftover payment: $28.95

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 7, 2014/07/17) */ Contact Name and Title: ***** ******* Front Desk Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: **** We apologize for the inconvinience, I would like to further review this complaint, may I know when you dropped off your car and picked it up? Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 9, 2014/07/18) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) In response: My car was dropped off around 6a on June 18, and I returned to pick it up around midnight, June 22.
