Front Desk Agent (Current Employee) – Redwood City, CA – 8 June 2013
This place is family owned so the rules are basically whatever they say goes. At first this was a great place to work, then once the owners got used to you they would treat you like you were also their property. If you need a day off, forget about it because they control who can and can't cover your shift which meant you couldn't request one off. Don't expect to ever be promoted because like I said this place is family owned.
You get to meet a lot of people who get to travel and have such interesting stories, there's a lot of down time especially during the winter season, you get to reserve at other choice hotels at a discounted price depending on availability.
Owners are very rude and it's very difficult to request a day off.

Started out great, until the new owner took over.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Midland, ON – 14 May 2018
Working here, I was tasked with cleaning, luggage handling for large groups and occasionally helping the maintenance worker. I quite enjoyed my time here, until the new owner came in and forced many people to quit (luckily I was gone days before he took over, but I used to go there to visit family who worked there). The owner was very unpleasant to his employees, and had actually made a few of them cry. Needless to say, when he took over most people left.
Friendly staff, guests leave tips
New owner was extremely intolerable, no job security
