Don't Stay Here – We arrived in St. George late at night and found the Economy Inn and my fiancee had paid cash for the room and received no receipt or paperwork. We were getting our things out of our car and there were sketchy looking people in the parking lot watching us and slowly approaching our vehicle. I immediately felt unsafe and was uncomfortable leaving my car there.
We entered our room and noted the lovely cream colored cinderblock prison style walls complete with white painted areas over spray paint graffiti on the walls and the steel door was all smashed up- from the inside. I immediately felt like I was in a bad episode of CSI.
We called the night manager and he tried to convince us that the white areas were not painted over- that was just the lighting- and cracks in the wall- and the walls being old- every excuse he could think of. Even though the white paint was the same they used to cover the graffiti in the parking lot. If he would have been honest and said, ?You know we had a problem with kids in the room vandalizing property" or something, I wouldn't have felt so uneasy. It's like this guy was trying to cover up something. We told him we didn't feel safe here, noting the people in the parking lot, and requested our money back as we had not even been there 10 minutes. He refused to give our money back saying it was "against policy." I requested the paperwork that outlined this policy. We never saw it. He threatened to call the cops on us when we requested paperwork and a refund. I told him go ahead call the police. He eventually gave us half our money back and pocketed the rest for himself. We had tried to record his Tax ID number, Lodging Number and the identifying information that is required to be posted but he had covered that information up.
This is a sleazy motel where the management, the rooms, and the people outside watching intently as you remove personal belongings from your car makes you feel unsafe, unwelcome, unclean, and ripped off.
