This is great for Monahans. But i still havent heard the manager claim any accountabity nor have i heard anything about the young ladies comments at any point. I mean really. Why didnt the clerk know the guest was in a wheelchair on the 3rd? Why didnt the mgr. Inform the guest he has prevousl blackouts? Why didnt he immediately check on the guest? since he was on property anyway. Did he make any notification to anyone that this person would need assistance in an emergency. Where there any other staff avalible to assist or even informed?I mean obviously the guest had no problem until he woke up in 105 degree heat in the dark. The hotel was booked and hot. Absoulty no one was arround upstairs. Guests have been living there for weeks. Finally. If someone could have taken the time to actually 'investigate' both sides. Maybe some one else would discover that the young woman. Not even 100lbs. Has a medical condition herself and physically would have needed another to assist. HONESTLY DID SHE REALLY LAUGH?

It only took me a couple of hours to find that the girl has a medical background, a disability and really large family. Why couldnt you? Monahans has great people. Plus i stayed at the hotel. Why does the night clerk also responsible for breakfast? Shouldnt there be afood service person for that during serving hours. Im sure the manager doesnt pay them for two jobs. Why is there only one person only after three and overnight. I didnt see extra security. And finally did you know that the phone rings non stop with people leaving threats and expression their opinions non stop. The girl was fired. In no way has this everbeen the chains resopnsibilty. It has always been the manager who ran from the carmera!!!!! He lives there.

Come on people we all dislike the fact that there was an outage and the gentleman couldnt use the elevator and the fact that he obviously couldnt climb the stairs. I agree that no one I mean no one that is disabled should be disrespected! But lets look at the whole picture: the man was obviously upset he couldnt use the elevator right! So did the conversation really go as he quoted? There are 3 sides to every story (1)his,(2)hers and (3) the truth! Even tho they both were there im sure the stories got a little misconscrewed! Not only is she apparently a small framed woman as stated in the last comment it is a liability for the owners! Please look at their point of view.....
O.K. say Holly gets the call and goes straight up to help him down the stairs and she drops him or he hits something then there is a major law suit against the owner who pays the Best Western Franchise fee not Best Western itself cause they each are independently owned. So instead of a major complaint, a formal apology and the little girl getting fired its a whole new ball game! Like i sd no one shouldve been talked to in such a manor, if thats the case but come on open your eyes and see the big picture!
