We made a big mistake driving late on a holiday weekend. We started looking for a hotel around 1 a.m. and stopped at half a dozen hotels without finding a vacancy. This one alone had a room. Bad omen. The rate was $157 for a king bed and a sleeper sofa, much more than we pay at much better hotels. At 2 a.m. and having no other choice, we took it. The room was a time warp, with decor and fixtures circa 1980 and a hole in the bathroom ceiling.
The sofa had no sheets or blankets. We called the front desk. The clerk said he couldn't leave his desk to get linens until security could cover the desk but promised to send them up. They never arrived. Exhausted, our son slept under bath towels.
I'd asked was there breakfast. Yes, I was told. Trouble was you pay for it. $9 for a meager buffet, worse than you get free elsewhere. The waitress asked did we get a voucher. No. Nobody told me you needed one. "Let me check," the waitress said then rang me up for the full $9 with no explanation.
I ate there, regretted it and took my wife and son to the Shoney's across the street for all you can eat for $3.99.
Don't be caught here without alternatives, I'd caution. And ask to see a room before paying.
