Hotel Reservations

So before our trip, I made sure that i had found and decent hotel for a good price and have a reservation. Well when we got to the hotel and about 5 o'clock they didn't have our reservation. They were however, extremelly accomodating and happily offered us their last room for twice as much as i was quoted when i made the reservation. I was also told that there is no way i was quoted that price even though on the wall next to the kind lady was a price list which showed the price that i was quoted. i was so excited at their offer that i quickly said that we would find somewhere else to be staying. Now friday night around disneyland proved to be a difficult place to find a hotel. Eventually we did find a place on priceline.com, made the reservation, and drove over to our hotel. This hotel was not as nice, i was reminded of john candy movies from the seventies. When we walked in to check in the man behind the counter was not happy to see us. I am not sure what happened, but they either did not have enough rooms or they were not supposed to be renting out anymore. I am not sure but the man called expedia and was not happy with them. We were trying to be polite and asked if he had a room for us and he said "i don't have a choice." Room 215 did not have working air conditioning and was about 150 degrees when we walked in. The room was clean enough and thus far we do not have any diseases, hopefully we will not discover them later.

sounds like our first anniversary to santa cruz. how does one vomit on the ceiling?

I would say that you should have vacationed to Nashville, but you already know that about now.

Say "hi" to Pluto for me.

brody~ I was thinking of that same thing when reading this....

that hotel room was so disgusting, there was trash everywhere, and when checking in they literally told us the room had not been cleaned, because the cleaning lady was gone!!!!!! I think we wore a few layers of clothing while sleeping, and got out of there as fast as possible.

I hope the rest of your trip goes better, and that you don't have to stay in any more nasty hotels.
