We made reservations for three days over Thanksgiving about three weeks in advance. I specified that we wanted a room that looked out on the lagoon (almost all the rooms do). "Sarah" assured me that we would have such a room. When we arrived, the clerk attempted to give us a room out near the freeway, looking out at the back of the breakfast room. My husband refused to accept it, despite the clerk's insistence that the room was all that was available (this at 3 o'clock in the afternoon). Another clerk heard the discussion and gave us the room we had been promised. The next day we discovered that the tub drain plug did not work. The desk sent someone to fix it, but it was merely tightened and still leaked. Over the three days, we noticed that the motel was not at all full. Strangely, when we checked out on Friday after Thanksgiving, another man was arguing with the desk clerk about not being given the type of room he had requested. This place needs some management intervention.
