Black Meadows Landing has to be one of the biggest jokes I have ever been to. You read the reviews on here and you think to yourself, "Maybe after the drive and them wanting you to pay extra if you get here 15 minutes early, just maybe the last reviewer was in a bad mood. Well, I can honestly say every reviewer before me was being kind. As far as cockroaches, they were nice. If you asked, they would go get you coffee in the morning and put your boat in the water. The roach with the cowboy hat was the nicest!! OK, seriously, they were big and there were lots!! In the daytime, while the motel was filthy, you only saw a roach or two. When you came home at night and turned the lights on, it looked like there was a blanket over everything...and the blanket was moving. It was disgusting!! I still had to sleep in this room. Please let me sleep with my mouth closed!! The family that was staying next to me had to go to Parker's emergency room because their son got a roach stuck in his ear and couldn't get it out. Luckily they had insurance!!
Now, let's go to the friendly owners. One guy on the beach had reserved his site 6 months before and when he got there, some was in his spot. He had a beer while they were trying to resolve it because the guy who took his spot refused to move because he liked it there and he had reserved a space 2 lanes up that WAS NOT on the beach. So, the guy who hijacked this other gentleman’s spot told the owner he will pack up and move in the morning. The guy who had the beach spot said hell no. He reserved it and he was not going to park in another spot and hook up, just to move in the morning. The guy even offered to help the other guy move. The guy said no, he will move in the morning. By this time, the guy who's spot was hijacked was on his second beer. The owner SHOULD have told the one guy move or be thrown off the camp ground. BUT, in a move that still blows me away, he told the guy who reserved the beach spot to leave the camp ground because he didn't need to have people on the property who were un-reasonable. My jaw hit the floor. THEN to it off, the owner called on his radio to the front gate to call the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department because someone is coming down from the camp ground that had been drinking!! I will be the first one to say drinking and driving is not cool. More-so at the river because people drink and do stupid things and get killed. But this by all means was a joke. Because of this, I have posted everywhere I can to allow people to know the quality of people who run this resort. First, you threw the wrong guy off the property. Second, now this guy knows what he has to do to reserve a cheap RV space and get a beach RV space. Then last, but this is the deal breaker for me, you called the police to have this guy get arrested for a DUI. He was with his wife and 2 kids. You think this might have scared the hell out of the kid’s not even get into the fines and other trouble if he did get a DUI.
All I can say is Black Meadows Landing is a joke. It’s run by people who have no business being in any type of service industry. This last incident was just the icing on the cake of everything I saw for 3 days before this. The front gate people are rude and I’m surprised they are not armed because I saw PLENTY of people come out of there that wanted beat the crap out of them. While I know sometimes you get frustrated working with customers, you don’t tell them if they don’t like something to leave and don’t ever come back. I can tell you what, that was the best bit of advice I got the whole weekend!!
