I made reservations for 3 nights including a Sat, as we wanted to explore the nearby ocean towns. Thurs and Fri were quiet nights but not Saturday, what a terrible experience. A bus came with a group who was having a private party at the hotel. They literally took over the lobby and dining area. We wanted to sit downstairs by the fireplace but it was taken by some of the group and kids were running and screaming and playing in the hallway. Adults were not correcting them and allowed them to act like that, even the front desk people did not say anything.
They also must have been cooking as the first floor and elevator smelled very bad.
We went back to our room on the 2nd floor. Not much later some of the group came upstairs and stood in the hallway chatting with each other and once again there were young children running up and down screaming. They also must have had to bring food up to their rooms as the smell was now upstairs. It was so strong and disgusting. Even when we went to bed we could still smell that horrible odor. And some of the people kept leaving and returning to their rooms as the closing of the doors was very loud. (very inconsiderate guests) Needless to say, we did not get much sleep.
I would think if a bus load of guests was to arrive they would be put together in a different area away from other guests, as this was possilbe with the size of this motel, maybe in the back of the building. We have stayed in other motels where buses stayed but never experienced anything like this in the past anywhere else. Will make me think about ever staying here again.
As far as the room goes, it was clean and spacious but disappointed they did not have a microwave and also the 2 charis were extremely hard. I asked if they had bigger, more padded chairs and was told no. We put pillows down to sit on. There was no ice machine on the 2nd floor so when we wanted ice we had to go downstairs for ice. We were told there was only one ice machine in the motel.
As far as the desk clerks, they were not friendly, no smiles, no greetings. So disappointed as other Best Westerns were so much better. less
