Lack of assistance by office staff
Lack of assistance for me ( over 58years old) in finding my 2 bedroom apartment while pushing a heavy bag in the half dark time of evening. I asked about getting a meal at restaurant but was discouraged as there was a bus group.

Same keys for all rooms
We stayed at this hotel on our way to the snowy mountains. So we were basically looking for clean and comfortable accomodation to spend the night. But what we didn't expect is really thin walls and other guests having the same keys for other rooms as well! A guest used his key for our room and apparently it worked at 3 0' clock in the night. Fortunately, we had the deadbolt on, so the door didn't open in completely. Clearly, security doesn't seem to be important here. Needless to say, I didnt sleep all night being able to hear other guest's voices and someone almost walking in to our room.
