I booked one room from the app for about $69. When I checked in, they held $100 for incidentals. However, they gave us a room not look like in the picture app, everything looked messy and almost broken so I think that they already knew about that room before they gave me. Then the next day, when we checked out, nobody told me to stay until they checked the room, they just told me to drop the keys in the box and then the money would be refunded to my account after 2-10 days. ||After 10 days, I did not have my money back, I called them a few times and they tried to not talk to me about the refund money. They said I had broken the towel rack but before I left, the room still looked fine because I just stayed there for sleeping 1 night. On the first call, the staff said her manager would refund me. Then I still waiting for it for 1 month and nothing back. A lot of people got charged for nothing from this business. That is why we need to stop this business doing like that because some people just stay for 1 night and never come back so they cannot complaint about it.
