Before booking the room the Expedia site said there were 2 rooms left at $99 per night. We booked the room and when we recieved the confirmation receipt it said $125 per night.After the 1st night, we left the please clean room notice on the door and it wasn't done. We inquired at the office and the clerk said that the room attendant has signed that they had cleaned the room. On checkout, we were charged an additional $8.50 for room cleaning. When we inquired about the charge the clerk rudely said that we had dogs and that was why the room wasn't cleaned, even though we had our dogs with us and they were never left in the room alone.As well, when checking in, the clerk has you complete the registration card and sign it, which I didn't think anything of, except for the fact that once you sign the card they can then fill in a multitude of charges which you don't owe such as the $8.50 cleaning charge which they didn't do.The clerk was extremely rude and wouldn't let us get a word in.This is the way they do business.As for the room, it was on the ground level, the large windows in front did not lock, of the 5 lights in the room only 2 worked, the light bulbs were unscrewed in 2 others. The heating system was either pumping out 100 degree heat or freezing air conditioning. The hot water from the taps is not regulated and a person could easily get 3rd degree burns in seconds. The room decor is from either the late sixties or early 1970 the only update being laminate flooring.The mat
