One would think when arriving at a Bed and Breakfast, you would be greated with a pleasant and welcoming attitude and smile. This was not the case.
We were charged $55.00 extra from the agreed amount stated verbally and also in writing on the internet. The hotel made a mistake apparently. The attitude of the owner was" take it or leave it." (This could be a cause for poor relationships and possibly leagal problems if the written internet confirmation shown to the owner would be considered a legal document) When looking at this agreement in writing and reading the paragraph on the bottom that was obviously designed by a attorney, it mentioned nothing that would imply extra charges.
As it was the only place in town to stay, our group decided to remain at this location and pay the extra money. Good thing for the Inn, as we were the only people staying the second night and only one other room was rented the first night.
When discussing our encounter with a local shop keeper, she said that many brides came into her shop crying with various stories about the owner.
Attitude is everything as well as reputation. Be ware!!
