My wife and I left Fredericksburg, Virginia, December 27th heading back to our home in Florida. We planned a stop in Beaufort to visit our son who is a chef on the American Cruise Lines "Independence". We called ahead on the 26th and made a reservation for a late afternoon arrival on the 27th. We arrived, as planned, in Beaufort and called the hotel for final directions. After arriving and parking in front of the hotel we lugged our bags upstairs to the lobby where we were met by two of the staff and were told that the hotel was overbooked, a mistake one said, and just discovered, but overbooked nonetheless. We asked why had they not called us earlier in the day, since they had both our cell phone numbers, they told us not to worry as they had booked us at a "nicer" hotel a block away and even though it was more expensive they would pony up the difference.
My wife and I are in our sixties and fairly active; however having to lug our luggage up one flight of stairs only to be told "no room at the inn" is a total lack of courtesy and consideration since they knew we were coming, had just finished talking to us on the phone, and could see us arrive from their perch on the second floor.
