“Thayer's Inn nightmare”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2003

Thayer's Inn provided a textbook case of how not to run an establishment. After reserving well ahead of time, we arrived at the inn only to be told that our rooms had been given to someone else under the false pretext that our credit card number was invalid. We checked his copy and mine. It was valid. This happened on a very busy weekend and there were no ohter rooms available in the lovely village of Littleton. Rather than trying to help us with our predicament, he stood behind the desk telling us how he couldn't help us in any way. But finally under pressure, he phoned some hotels and found us two rooms in Fairlea Vt. He told us it was a half hour drive to get there. We arrived more than an hour later. He told us that he would pay the difference between the costs of the rooms in each of the establishments. He didn't. In fact, he accused me of trying to screw him. I am glad that these review columns exist because it is the only way to get the word out. Traveller beware of Thayer's Inn!
