Longbranch Hotel Canton Texas

As a matter of fact, we did have a good experience despite the long branch hotel, we did stay at the Dog Springs B&B after we everything that happened with the Long Branch Hotel, and we did enjoy ourselves very much there. The people there went out of their way to make us feel welcome and have a good time in Canton. Everyone else that we delt with in Canton, from the Chamber, to the dealers out and about, were very good people, and we will be returning, just will not ever give the Long Branch hotel another thought, however maybe you should go try it out for yourself before you start blabbing on about me and my complaints, I speak from a VERY BAD experience thanks to Tony at the Long Branch Hotel. He is the one who should be treating others the way he wants to be treated!  (Nov 16, 2008 | post #12)

Oh, I do agree that CANTON is a wonderful place to go, but the longbranch hotel is a joke, and if you go to other websites and read reviews other than ones from the owner, you will see that it is not just my opinion, but alot of other people had a bad experience there as well. What is wrong with calling the chamber and the BBB and getting their opinion??? That is what they are there for. I did have a great time there, Tony surely didn't ruin it all, just the start of it, when he was VERY rude and cursing us with TERRIBLE profanity all because HE made a mistake and gave my room away! NOT MY FAULT, AND NOT CANTONS FAULT, just the longbranch staff, that is the ONLY bad experience we had. I will go again, and WILL NEVER stay at the longbranch, and will NEVER recommend that anyone else does either, but I don't have to worry about that because with the bad customer service and misrepresentation of the business, it won't be long until that place is in business no more. So, God bless you, and God will take care of the UGLY in Canton...all in due time!  (Jun 19, 2008 | post #8)

THIS IS SPAM!!!! Canton is a blast no doubt about it, but before you book a room ANYWHERE, especially here, call the chamber there in Canton, they will give you a good recommendation on where to stay, there are alot of really nice places to stay and in my opinion(along with ALOT of others), this is not the place, trust me, been there, done that, and it was not pretty! Also remember to check the BBB, and see who is a member, both there and the Chamber.  (Jun 5, 2008 | post #4)

The only catch to going on this website is that you see pic that do not show "THE WHOLE TRUTH" about the place. I know first hand. CALL THE CHAMBER AND GET THEIR OPINION...maybe find out who is a member and who is not....ask about complaints.....als o go to the BBB website....if a place is not a member of either, you may want to RETHINK staying there! just a thought before you get a bad deal! I DO agree that Canton is a BLAST and I will be going back, just NOT staying at the longbranch.  (Jun 5, 2008 | post #5)

The point is that he has to advertise this way, because he has been kicked off of too many other sites(in Canton) that know he doesn't conduct business with a professional attitude. There has been WAY TOO many complaints with the BBB and the Chamber there in Canton, so he has to get word out somehow, or go out of business!! Pretty sad if you ask me, how all of a sudden these "good" reviews came about, AFTER I told my story about this dump, and it's VERY rude owner. Like I have said PLENTY of times, if you need a good place to stay in Canton, do yourself a favor and call the Chamber, they are great and will give you a good recomedation on where to stay. I do agree that Canton is great,with the exception of this OLD, RUN down place with the VERY RUDE OWNER! The shopping there is GREAT! Good luck!  (May 28, 2008 | post #9)

Going to Canton? Don''t stay at the Long Branch Hotel

just an update. I did finally receive a full refund from the longbranch, however, I do not take back anything I have said on here, I am and have always spoke the truth about the events that have occured there, and as far as what you see, it is not the same when you get there as you see on the website, so beware. call the chamber or read reviews posted on all websites for all hotels or B&B's.  (Mar 13, 2008 | post #2)

Longbranch Hotel Canton Texas

It's so odd that you are from Dallas, TX, where Tony claims to be from, and all of a sudden these "good reviews" are coming out of no-where, why are posting on the Vidor, Tx site and not Dallas??? There were VERY few good things said about this place before all the true, bad things were posted, makes me wonder who they are really coming from??????? Well, I had a terrible experience with this place, first of all it is not what it appears to be, and the customer service that I recieved was just the same, terrible, I will never or would ever recommend anyone to stay there. I would say to anyone reading this, if you are thinking about staying there, call the chamber, see what they have to recommend, then check with the BBB, this place of business is NOT a member of the BBB, and there has been another complaint, other than mine, filed with the BBB on this business. Also, in an email I recieved from Tony, threatening to sue me, I noticed that he cannot spell worth a crap, kind of like your post on here....HUUUUUMMMM M......kind of weird, don't you think??????  (Mar 13, 2008 | post #2)

Going to Canton? Don''t stay at the Long Branch Hotel

I made reservations on January 20, 08, for February 29 & March 1st, checking out on March 2, 08, at the Long Branch Hotel in Canton, TX. The reservations were for myself along with my 3 sisters who would be staying with me there. My reservations were made with Tony Lewis (hotel owner I was told by him). He gave me the total price of the room, which was $451.52, and told me that he would charge $225.77 (my deposit) on January 20, 08, which he did, and that he would charge the remaining AFTER we checked in. He charged the remaining $225.77 on February 26, 08, 3 days before we attempted to check in. I called him the day before we were to arrive to confirm. I arrived at the Long Branch Hotel on Friday, February 29th to check in. Upon arrival, Tony Lewis, told me that he had made a mistake and had given my room away. He never apologized for his ďmistakeĒ, and when I got upset about it, he cursed me, and told me to get out of his f****** hotel, and that I was just a spoiled b****. Then he called the police and tried to say that we were trespassing. He had the attitude that I had no choice but to take the room or be on the street, because all the hotels and B&Bís are usually booked, as Iím sure you all know. He did offer me another room, which was smaller than the one we had reserved and not large enough for the 4 of us that were to stay there. After he gave our room away, he told me that I could take the smaller room or he would refund my money, I chose for him to refund my money. At this point, he ran my credit card through and instead of giving me a credit, he charged me an additional $225,(I did not realize this until I got home) which posted on March 3, 08, which brings this to a grand total of $677.31. I have contacted the police about this and they talked to him, and he told them he would take care of it, but still has not. I have also talked with the Chamber and the Better Business Bureau. He does have a non-refund policy IF you cancel within a certain time, but I DID NOT cancel, he gave my room away, and had no other rooms available to meet my needs. This man is a scam artist. Not a good name for Canton. We did however deal with many more people there, and thankfully everyone else was very nice, friendly people. I say to the people of Canton, this kind of people will give you a bad name, so do what you can to get this scum gone! We did call the Chamber, and they gave us the # to Dog Springs B&B, and thatís where we stayed, the place is VERY nice, along with the owners there. So a huge thanks to Larry & Kelly for a very nice stay! Thank you,  (Mar 4, 2008 | post #1)

Okay, now this guy is calling my cell phone and my sisters home phone threatening to sue us for slandering his name. Slander is when you tell a lie pal, and what I am telling is the Gods honest truth! I have proof of the credit card charges, along with emails that were sent back and forth, and the messages that were left on the phones. As far as the looks of the hotel, well you Canton folks can look on his website, then drive by there and you will see that he misrepresents his hotel. You can also go to different website and read reviews from other people than myself, that are along the same lines....SCAM! Canton is TOO NICE for this kind of thing!!  (Mar 4, 2008 | post #2)
