although the views of the ocean were beautiful, the cost of the room was outrageous for what services we received.
the very meager cold breakfast ( basically children's cereal and toast) was buffet-style on paper plates and plastic forks!
the little closet that was set up as the "hospitality room" had water, soda and chips that you had to pay $1.00 each for!
when we asked for an extra pillow ( the pillows we had in our room were as hard as sacks of cement!) we were ignored.. no extra pillows
the innkeepers were ill-suited as innkeepers, I got the impression that we were an inconvenience to them as they were constantly babysitting for their daughter's kids. I felt like we were in a daycare center!
our room was never vacuumed and the bathroom was not cleaned daily, and when we left teacups for the chambermaid to remove the next day when she cleaned the room, they were left there for days!
the air conditioner leaked water so there were towels left under it to catch the water
there was no parking, you had to try to find a spot on the street everyday
Bottom line... perhaps if the room rate was at least half of what it was, maybe I would cut them a little slack, but we have traveled extensively and this did not meet our standards
