casa madrona- Sauslito,CA

If buying or bidding on a travel website such as Travel Zoo, etc - which we did.......Beware of bargain prices. We got what we paid for- a room with a view, alright , but with 85 steps to climb to get to it!!After the bid, we called the hotel to discuss room and bedding ( queen- twin ..? etc ) and never once were we seniors told about any steps at all. Of course when we realized what was ahead of us- they had no other rooms available. For one of us it was a miserable situation and we could only make the climb at the end of each day- 1 time per day and that was way, way too many times.

That's really bad that your stay was so significantly impacted by your room's location. But for future reference, if the lodging is a historic hotel as Casa Madrona's is, be sure to ask specifically about handicapped access, if the Website doesn't make reference to it. Not sure if Casa Madrona's does or not. It is fairly common for vintage/historic lodging to have flights of steep stairs to traverse.

You certainly did the right thing by calling the hotel and checking on the room and bedding. But I would suggest to anyone to inquire also about elevators and mention any mobility issues.
