A favourite hotel although when we arrived one of the double beds in our room had not been made up to completion this time. Air conditioning a bit fierce and noisy too. Breakfast in the Alamo restaurant very good although there was a long delay one morning. Used their very nice guest laundry and drier.
Unfortunately, we left my wife's new flight socks over a chair so had to ring up later that day from our next stop not too far away. No ring back after I rang twice to ask for a search on that Friday and on the Saturday, I didn't get a sensible call back (they hadn't been found) till Monday. Very lackadaisical. Like some other US experience shows, flight socks didn't/
don't seem obviously known about! Can be easily mistaken for cheap pop socks we think.
At a later Holiday Inn hotel, they told us that they bagged everything left behind in rooms, tagged it and kept it for 60 days!
About 45 minutes drive from the coast.
