We had been planning a 5 day reunion at this hotel for months. We reserved 8 rooms. If you are not familiar with Seaside, pretty much all the motels are old and run down. We had reserved Fri and Sat nite because they can book up, but left the other nights open because we figured they would be empty. I had reserved my 5 nights in advance, because I thought it would be easier. I was quoted a price, given a reservation number, and I even asked for a total with tax. I gave them my credit card number. When I arrived, I was told that the room would be more than I was quoted. Because we had reserved 7 other rooms, I had to contact everyone in our group to let them know they were not honoring the prices they had quoted us over the phone. Other family memeber elected to make other arrangements for accomodations, or shorten their stay.
Also, some in our group had reserved 2 bedroom units. These rooms have 2 double beds in the same room, and another room with an old sofa and kitchen sink. If they had told us this on the phone, we would have made different arrangements. Some of the rooms smelled really bad, others were OK. Some of the rooms had queen beds, but double sheets which did not fit the mattresses. Also, some of the rooms (2 bedrooms) had no place to hang your clothes, but they did have 2 TVs. There are no hair dryers, hand towels, or even a box of tissues. There are also no phones in the rooms. Bath towels are really small and thin. There are no vouches for breakfast after Labor Day, but we decided to try the restaurant anyway. No one was impressed with the food. We did not expect much from this motel, but there is no excuse for not being truthful. Also, the fire alarms went off in the middle of the night, and there were fire trucks, police etc....not very quiet. Beds were made and towels were replaced everyday, but that was the extent of the cleaning. Hope I can warn someone else with this review.
