    I have been a loyal customer since 2002 and have a wonderful experiences from the beginning. Navy Federal offers some of the most competitive rates on their CD's and as a bonus they also pay dividends on checking accounts as well as any type of savings accounts. The APR given to a simple checking account is higher than most other banks rates on their CD's and saving accounts, This includes other Federal Credit Unions.

    The only potential draw back is they do not currently have many branch locations however, they have made things easy with online services offered such as the automatic check deposit system offered (which is a tremendous feature when a local branch isn't an option). They are currently expanding by building several branch locations so this may not be a draw back much longer. I would highly recommend this financial institution; in my experience, they have been nothing but the highest caliber of financial institution one can could ever ask for.

    These people are dishonest! I have used this tailor for nearly a year now. Over this time I have spent hundreds of dollars. Although the last few times encounters have been extremely horrible. I explained as thoroughly and slowly as possible that the work I paid them to do was not done as discussed. I requested they complete the work properly after all they had already received payment. Not only did they refuse but they all but called me a liar. Here is what happened...

    I brought in a total of 12 pairs of slacks and 8 dress shirts to have them tailored. The first 10 pairs of slacks were brought in to have the waist adjusted. Later I found out that of the 10 pair 6 were not fitted correctly. Since I hadn’t had any issues with them, up to this point, when I picked up the 10 pair of slacks I immediately dropped them off at the cleaners. While picking them up the 10 I dropped off 2 more. I didn’t find out that until after I brought them home from the cleaners. Of course I found out while getting ready for work. I brought the 6 pair back when I went to pick up the other 2 pair. I explained the situation and asked to have the problem fixed, they denied doing the work in the first place. Here is the kicker, I tried on the other 2 pair that I had dropped off previously and one of the pair was exactly like the other 6 and still they denied doing the work. To say the least I am disgusted with these people and would not recommend them to anyone.

    Now on to the dress shirts, I brought in 8 Round Tree & Yorke Gold Label dress shirts to have them custom tailored. The result was just as bad as the slacks. They completely ignored what was requested and once nothing could be corrected they discounted the bill by $5. I was furious and left before losing my temper. Now I have 8 shirts at approximately $60 a piece and 6 pair of slacks ranging anywhere from $60 to 165 per pair that I will have to pay even more to have them corrected, well the slacks anyways. The shirts were unable to be corrected due to the amount of material removed so they are ruined.

    On several occasions when I went to pick up items they had no idea where they were located. I end up walking through their hole in the wall shop and finding my own clothes. I attributed their “issues” to language barriers but now I realize it was merely horrible customer service and a ploy to cheat the customer. Once I received my items I inquired if there were any other tailors in Sierra Vista, they stated that they were the only one in the area: I said it before, dishonest.

    Their talents are extremely limited. Everything seems to have overwhelmed them. Although I wouldn't recommend bringing even the simplest of jobs to them.

    DO NOT TRUST THESE CROOKS - THE LOWER INTEREST RATES ARE NOT WORTH BEING RAPPED.

    I would rate these crooks a negative star if I could. Although they offer competitive rates they have been nothing but a pain from day one. My wife purchased a car while deployed and we financed the vehicle through Andrews Federal Credit Union. While my wife was on leave she contacted the bank and after a short 45 minute wait she added me to the loan so that I could handle the account, when she returned over seas I contacted the bank and they refused to speak to me stating that I was not on the account.

    We ordered our vehicle directly from the manufacture using the Military Sales Special offered to the military members while they are deployed. They added a $799 fee for insurance even though we have had coverage on the vehicle since the day we picked it up from the dealership. I have contacted them numerous times, 4 times to be exact, and the issue was suppose to have been cleared. However, they are charging us interest on the amount and refuse to deduct the amount from the loan.

    Payments have also been a constant pain, I found out today that they bank rejected payments via ACH from another financial institution, their reasoning was the account wasn't active for a 90 day period (which is incorrect). To continue with the hassle I have mailed checks to them and rather than applying it to the vehicle loan, the account number written on the checks, they have deposited the checks into the "free checking" account that was established when the account was opened. Of course I found this out only after checking online, nothing was indicated on the statements. Speaking of statements, they have only since 2 statements within a 6 month period. I honestly believe they are doing everything they can to penalize and cause us to default the loan. The same loan that we put down payment of over $17,000 on.

    If I could give these people a half star or less if I could. They are Fu**ing crooks! My wife and I went there to get the normal exam and a pair of simple glasses each. First they told us that we did not have insurance and that we would have to pay cash this of course is after I called and the only reason we decided to go to them is because they were the only local eye doctor our insurance company covered. Of course the amount required was not disclosed until we were at the register. That's not even the best part, later we received an additional bill in the mail stating that we owed more. The companies reasoning was that the insurance company denied our claim, interesting since we didn't have insurance to begin with according to them. So at this point we had shelled out nearly $800.

    My wife and I requested expedited shipping because she would be leaving to Afghanistan a short time later. The answer we receive was "sure no problem, this isn't much of a prescription so it should be by the end of the day" not only did they take forever, nearly two weeks, but they called during my vacation, and I was told that they would get them (the glasses) to me if we paid the "extra cost" for shipping.

    The service was par at best. My wife was very angry with the lack of detail during the exam. As if that wasn't bad enough the company charged us for something "medical" as a way to get insurance companies to pay more. So all-in-all the horrible visit ended up costing nearly $1000.00 after all was said and done. There is no way in hell I would pay that much for an eye exam and two pair of plain jane glasses. This place would be the last place I would ever recommend to anyone. This includes my worst enemy. Although I would highly recommend Nation Wide Vision. They aren't horrible crooks, much better all around!

    If you are on a tight budget and find yourself looking for the most for your money, the Hyatt Place is the place! You will be extremely happy - this chain offers a modern sophisticated feel for a fraction of the price of their competitors. My wife and I fell in love with this place, every time and everywhere we travel we select the Hyatt Place. The amenities are great; each room has a large plasma TV to make matter better they also offer movies that are currently in theatres so you can actually relax and enjoy yourselves without the nagging babies or unruly patrons constantly engaging on their cell phones. This chain of hotels also has a kitchen where each morning breakfast is served, made to order if desired. For the price you can't beat it. I highly recommend that you stay a night and see how your experience compares.
