We reserved a King bed room online. When we arrived for check-in all they had was a 2 queen handicap room and we couldn't get the heat to work. The hotel was supposed to call about early check in but finally called about 5. We were there for a football game so we had to wait until after. Checked in about 1:00 am.

I didn't like that they did not meet our request for 2 queen beds and blamed it on Travelocity. They had our reservation well in advance as well as payment. Easy out for them to blame Travelocity. Kaleb kept repeating the same phrase and would not accommodate our request. Will not return to this Hotel and will not recommend to others.
