This is actually my second time staying at this hotel. The first time was last August for a bachelorette party. I wasn't impressed, but didn't really expect much either. Our room was nice actually, and the pool is a lot of fun. The DJ really gets the crowd going. But both last year and this year, the hotel makes your write down each person's name that is staying in your room, which I felt was odd and sort of an invasion of privacy. This year we also had to wear these ugly green wristbands the ENTIRE weekend to prove that we were staying there, and not one person ever checked to see if we had one on after getting them the first day, so I'm not sure what the point was. When we checked in, all of that made me feel really uncomfortable, like I was about to go to prison instead of have a nice getaway weekend. Also, right after we checked in we were waiting for a couple others to come and the rest of our luggage to get across the ferry in our car. so when the car finally did arrive we started bringing in our bags and coolers and food, etc. Since there were 8 of us going to be staying, we had both guys and girls in our room, we brought an extra mattress pad in case someone did not want to share a bed. I'm an engaged female, so I definitely did not want to share a bed with a guy. This mattress pad looks like a rolled up sleeping bag. You can put it on top of a bed for extra comfort or if needed on the ground. So the moment we brought that out, someone from the hotel swarmed over to the room and said "we were watching you unpack and I know you have an airmattress here, so you will need to give it to us so we know you are not trying to have extra people stay in your room."
First, of all, after being banded, and our names taken down immediately, I was already uncomfortable, and now they have people watching people unpack their cars? Talk about CREEPY! Like, do you want people to come back to your facility? Do you want people to enjoy themselves? This place clearly does not. We also asked about a couple of friends that were staying at a different place, if we could invite them over, and they said NO! The other people would be allowed in the pool area of the hotel, but not in our room! So we basically couldn't see our friends for fear the hotel staff would be watching us like hawks and get us in trouble for lettign a friend use our bathroom or something. Also, the TV in our room sucked and didn't get a clear picture, there were sheets on the beds and no blankets, and the hotel offers a continental breakfast every day EXCEPT SATURDAY. Like, what is that? Are you that cheap? I assume that most people come up for the weekend so they are the most busy Friday-Sunday, why can't you still offer your guests some food on Saturday? I find that pretty ridiculous. I think I've been to Put-In-Bay enough times to not need to go back for a while, but if I ever do I will not stay here.
