Long term user having terrible customer service experience
My partner and I have been regular users of Airbnb for decades and use the service roughly five times a year. Recently we rented the top floor of a split home in the Buffalo area. The space was filthy, with mold, dust, grime and the bathroom was filled with animal hairs. My partner is highly allergic to dust. The listing was for 2 bedrooms, up to 4 people, but one of the beds was old, broken, and too painful to sleep in. We contacted the host but never received a response, and eventually had to book another Airbnb in the city. So we have now paid for two rentals for the same week. Airbnb customer service has been terrible. We have asked to speak to a supervisor for days and have been lied to multiple times that one would call us and they never have. Does anyone know how to get Airbnb to better live up to the service they claim to offer? We are long term customers who often suggest Airbnb to friends and family. Any help would be appreciated because we are becoming very discouraged. Thanks.
For whatever reasons, the customer service rep we spoke with today “escalated” our request to speak to a supervisor, and he called us after a couple of hours. He is now reviewing our dispute and we hope this will be resolved with the refund or credit we deserve after dealing with the nightmare that was our rental and subsequent attempts to get help.
