My wife and I booked a room with a partial view of the ocean at a popular hotel in Tybee. The partial view was correct, what they failed to mention was that the room had so much deodorizer sprayed into the carpets, my wife could hardly breathe. We even tried to leave the patio door wide open to air it out, but to no avail. To the credit of the hotel staff, they did find us another room albeit with a much poorer view.
We decided to check out a B&B, even though we had never stayed at one. The first was quite nice, but we did find some air freshener in use with a slight fragrance. The second was the Beachview. We were shown two rooms and decided on the Private's Quarters.
The room was just like the rest of the inn: historical charm, intersting architecture, and friendly staff. ANd no perfumey air freshener to mask a smelly carpet -- just historic hardwoods here.
Karen is great, as is the chef that prepares breakfast -- really delicious.
We made a last minute change on a Friday of a summer weekend and were so lucky that Karen was able to accommodate us. Thank you. We will definitely come back.
