Motel 6 - Bi-Polar General Manager
LANSING, MICHIGAN -- My boyfriend and I checked into Motel 6 on 10/16/2013 for one month until our new home was ready to move into. The reason we chose Motel 6 is because it was the least expensive for the amount of time that we needed to stay. As it turned out, we ended up staying for forty one days at over $300.00 per week!
My boyfriend works twelve hour days at GM, and left at 4:00am. We are a quiet couple with no children, and paid our room every week like clockwork! The first weekend Saturday, the sink in our bathroom started to drain slow until it stopped draining all together. I called the front desk and explained this, they told me that the maintenance man didn't work on weekends so they couldn't do anything until Monday, they didn't even offer to change our room! My boyfriend needed to shave before work and couldn't because of the standing water in the sink!
The woman at the front desk gave us a refund credit for one night, that was standard courtesy anyway as far as were concerned. When the general manager found out that she had done this without his authorization, that's when our nightmare with him began. On November 26th, two days before Thanksgiving and over one thousand dollars that we had paid them thus far. Out of the blue the general manager called and said that he WAS NOT going to renew our room, and he was kicking us out that same day (in the snow with place to go)!
Who does that! Two days before Thanksgiving without any reason? We had done nothing wrong, except questioning a discrepancy that we found on our bill, and the credit we received on the bathroom sink. When I continued to ask him for an legitimate reason, he refused to give us one, after we paid over thousand dollars to stay in that dump!
