It all started with me trying to make a reservation via their local phone number. I was in a bind to find housing as I just returned from Europe to Santa Rosa on the first day the wildfires ravaged through the Santa Rosa area. I was surprised to find my house in the mandatory evacuation zone. So, helas, I had to look for a room for the night. I was in kind of a hurry as the curfew set in at 6:45pm. The lady who answered the call said she did not know about availability, but promised to call back. About 30-45 minutes later, not having received a call back, I called again. This time the 800 number. Low and behold the same lady answered. She sad that I was second in line and that the would call me back right away. I waited for about an other 20 minutes. No call back. So, I decided to book on line. I got through and received a confirmation number. When I checked in I was told where to find my room. Nobody was there to take me and my possessions to the room which was confusing to find. The door to the room was the same as to the restaurant which happened to be closed. Go figure. I had to go back to the reception, only to receive the same information again. The lady finally opened the locked up door to the restaurant and to my room for me. The next morning the restaurant was open (I could tell from above that something loud was moving). I decided to have breakfast only to receive a breakfast bill at check-out for over $ 40.00. I had breakfast by myself. This is the last I heard from the place. I think the also sent me an automatic satisfaction survey which I decided to give on this platform instead. I am sure there will be all kinds of excuses. Just know that the next day as I checked, out of curiosity for an available room, the on-line price had already gone up by close to 10% even though upon check-out I was assured that there was enough availability for the upcoming night. Is this price gouging? Should I have reported this incident to the D.A.? I am sure they'll have an answer. Better to stay away from this place.
