Called for our free shuttle service from the ferry. Was told it would be 15-20 minutes. Called back an hour later to see if they forgot about us. Call taker said let me ask "the boss" (the entire stay, everyone kept referring to "the boss" but I never spoke with him). Finally came and got us and tossed our bikes haphazardly into the truck bed, no racks or straps. took us to the back alley where an outside bar was set up. walked through the rear entrance to the bar and was directed to the restaurant side where a waiter fumbled through some paper work to try to find what room I had and some form to sign. We were told by him that we get 2 free drinks at the bar and that free breakfast starts at 8. We got neither. It was a Friday night stay and the bands from downstairs and outside were quite loud throughout our room. In the morning when we asked about our shuttle service back to the ferry, apx 5 miles, they looked at us like we were from Mars. We were told that we had to set that up with "the boss" the night before and he's the only one with a truck and doesn't come in till late. We were never told the night before that we had to make arrangements with "the boss". It just stands to reason that if we called for the shuttle here that we would need to to get back too. Rather than freaking out, we just asked for our bikes and we would leave. A guy from the restaurant, a server I presume, brought our bikes out to the street, turned his back and walked back inside without saying a word...no attempts at apologies, no attempts at helping us find a solution, nothing. A couple we ran into at the ferry said they cancelled their room and booked the Comfort Inn (which had quick shuttle service and a bike rack) after reading too many bad reviews. Unfortunately for us, there was a 3 day notice on cancellations so we had to roll the dice. EPIC FAIL! DO NOT GIVE THESE CLOWNS OR "THE BOSS" YOUR BUSINESS!
