2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2007

We arrived late in the evening on our honeymoon trip through California and had no other choice. They charged us 336 $ (!!!) for one night, but after our return to Germany they charged us another 511 $ (!!!!!!!!!) accusing us for smoking in the room. We are both nonsmokers, the only smoke in the room came the whole night from the old oven which we had to feed with a lot of firewood. Stay away from this place if you dont like problems, better choose a cheap motel anywhere.

ElkCoveInn, Owner at The Elk Cove Inn & Spa, responded to this review, 18 May 2007
When we're wrong, we own up to it. But this review just isn't accurate. We went out of our way to accept these guests as walk-in's, long after our office had closed. We showed them several rooms as they requested, and they chose our best, king bed ocean front cottage at the regular rate, which included our Welcome Basket with wine, fruit and homemade cookies, a decanter of port and chocolates for bed time and a complete buffet breakfast. We are a smoke-free environment. When guests register, they sign a Registration Card, acknowledginging that if they smoke in their rooms, they will be charged a $500 cleaning fee. After the guests checked out, our Housekeeping Manager informed us that they had smoked in their room. Our Guest Services Manager inspected and confirmed it, noting that one of the guests smelled strongly of cigarettes at breakfast. We know the difference between the smell of a wood stove and cigarettes. The room had to be taken out of service for 2 days to rid it of the smell, and we had to upgrade the guests who had reserved it next. Incidentally, it was not cold enough that night to warrant "feeding the wood oven all night," and the guests were informed that the room had baseboard heat. All in all, we lost more than $800. The amount charged to the guests after their departure included the cleaning fee and $11 for the late-night snack we prepared especially for them.
