          Hello, Wharf Masters Inn. My husband and I have been frequent guests in the past. The last time we visited was for our wedding anniversary in November 2012 or 2013. We stayed in the top room closest to the ocean. A maintenance crew fixing a leaky roof in that area didn't know that room was occupied, came down from the roof onto our balcony, and caught me standing there looking out the glass doors nude. The Innkeeper at the time - an elderly man, and what a wonderful character! - gave us a certificate for a free night in the same room with no expiration date. I still have the certificate (somewhere). My husband's birthday is coming up and we'd like to get away for a night or two between 10/2 and 10/4. I'm wondering if the certificate I have will still be honored. I'm disabled, so we will need an ADA room, hopefully with a balcony and an excellent ocean view. Please let me know if you can accommodate us that weekend and if you will honor my free stay certificate. Thanks, -Helen Dr. Helen E. Wilbur (Mrs. Mitchell Stegner)

          I honestly cannot se why anyone would want to stay at this hotel in Pt Arena. It is unbelievably over-priced and offers nothing. Even the view isn't especially good. The owner responded to my review with a lot of whining and absolute prevarication. This is definitely not an honest business establishment. Do not think of staying here.
