Booked a hot tub suite, other than a red wine stain on the floor everything seemed okay. The main problem is that our room for $162 a night was ground floor and backed onto the parking lot. We heard some commotion outside and saw a few people standing around a bed of a truck wearing full camouflage and appeared to be putting meat bags. Now given the recent breech at the US Capitol, my wife did not feel safe and we decided to leave and stay somewhere else.
I’m sure it was just hunters splitting a deer or something but again not something that you want right outside the sliding door to your room.
If you stay here I would give the ground floor rooms that have sliding doors onto the parking lot a miss. If they are full then similar accommodations are available at the other hotel on the lake.
Why did we leave and not complain? It is not our job to be the “world police”. I felt that my wife was maybe being a bit over sensitive but I respect her feelings and so wanted to fix everything in the least bothersome and combative way. I’m also not sure switching rooms at that point would have made her feel any more safe and relaxed. I think moving location was the best choice. Probably not for my wallet but you can’t put a price on feeling safe.
I would say that since the parking lot is somewhat secluded in portion, security cameras be installed to detect unusual activity so that the hotel can investigate unusual goings-on.
Just in addition this was the first hotel I have stayed at that seemed unable to assign British Airways Avios as my chosen reward at the front desk. I was directed to call the 1-800 number and talk to customer service that I will never get around to. British Airways Executive Club is shown as a Best Western partner on the Best Western website. Not sure why I had to call? Would have thought if front desk did not know how to do something that they would have a support number to call? less
