Manatee Central Banquet Hall Nicole Howard Steven Johnson Security Deposit taken without explanation! Bradenton Florida
If you want your Honeymoon ruined, book this banquet hall! During our honeymoon we noticed that our $500 security deposit was cashed. We were never notified that there was even an issue. So we called to inquire about it. We were told that there was excessive cleanup, although we already paid a $175 cleaning fee.
We ended up paying $675 for cleaning because 'supposedly' there were flower pedals on the floor (that's what a vacuum is for!), she had to take down 5 hanging lanterns (hanging on easily removable 3M hooks), garbage in the parking lot (I know for certain there was no garbage in the parking lot, and she has no proof of this). I do not see where $675 is warranted.... We have called numerous times to speak with the owner of the banquet hall, but no one has returned our phone calls.
Nicole Howard, the Hall Manager, was very unprofessional. I had numerous complaints from my guests stating that she was rude to them and not very friendly. I would NEVER recommend this facility to any Bride wanting to enjoy her wedding day and Honeymoon.
