  • 2.0.Poor


    I checked in at 10pm to find my room nothing like the photo shown on app. As soon as I saw the room, it was so unacceptable condition I came back down to the front desk to change the room. The room was not only smelling moldy and smokey but all the furnitures were so old and beaten. The front desk offered us another room but this room was in the same condition and I couldn’t find the AC in the unit. We came down again and asked why the room didn’t have the AC and was in the same bad condition. The manager said, “ the AC is in the closet and if you don’t want to stay you can check out now and get your full refund. I have full authority to issue full refund” basically, he was telling us to get out I don’t want your money nor you staying here. We were so tired and upset. We decided to find another place to stay and left Kensington with manager’s name. tried to contact the manager at Kensington. They are not answering for past 3 days.

    As I already requested a refund which I also reported to expedia, my room was right in front of two domed concert halls where people from some church had all day events with Lloyd bands from morning to midnight. My kids couldn't go to sleep because of noise. The hotel agreed to give me a refund, but I'll see if they keep their words. This hotel is known to be owned by a company whose founder is known as a Evangelical Christian and has had some serious legal trouble with laborers in relation to work condition and company regulations. I wonder if they think that church works comes ahead of paying customers satisfaction?

    I stayed here because it was across the street from the golf course, where I had a very early tee-time. However the accommodation was like a apt/prison cell. Very uncomfortable feeling.

    청소는 좀더 신경써서 해야할듯 합니다. 작은 유리조각이 바닥에 있었어요 ㅠ

    가격저렴한데 방 컨디션은 오히려더좋아요.

    리모델링된방이라서 깨끗하고 쾌적했어요. 다음에경주에오면 또여기서 묵고싶네요 서비스도좋고 온돌방이라서 카펫아닌곳이라 더좋아요. 카페트인곳은 먼지많아서 피해서찾고있었거든요. 따뜻하게 잘 쉬다가 여행할수있어서 아이도 좋아했어요.가격비해 숙소내 컨디션이 더좋아요. 아이가어리면 코코몽 키즈카페도 이용할수있어서 아이어린집은 더추천합니다.
