We had to get a room around Seaside on short notice, and therefore hadn't had that much choice. We booked a room at the Highlands House via telephone, and the lady at the phone was very friendly. Still, we were a bit shocked when she told us a room for two would be 250$ incl. breakfast. Again - we were running out of time and booked the room.
When we arrived in the afternoon, nobody was there - another guest showed us the keys to our room and handed us a note with a telephone number. It was from the lady on the phone, saying that if we need anything we should call that number.
Our room was nice enough, but there were hairs on the towels, which by the way were so worn that you could look almost through.
But the worst was breakfast the next morning. Served in a dark basement, it was a joke. A spoonful of scrambled eggs, bacon and a piece of toast.
This was by far the most expensive night we had on our 3 week roadtrip from Tampa/FL to Houston/TX, and by far the most disappointing.
