Promises, Promises
I knew I had a problem when there was no parking when I arrived. Evidently, management does not check the plate numbers, so local F&B establishments take advantage; hence no parking in the PM despite 40% occupancy. Chose the hotel for "ample parking" despite its location, but there is parking available only in the mornings and evenings, so not easy to use the car to go out for lunch or shopping. Must stay out until the evening. Then, no internet on my PC in the room on 4 routers. Managed a connection with no bars (just the dot) to send off a couple of lengthy emails at one spot in the lobby. No images. Cell phone got a "dot only" connection in the room, 1 bar on the cell. Used the cell. Some other guests were using portable routers. Young staff was friendly but generally not knowledgeable beyond key tourist spots and therefore not helpful. Took a while to find a cafe with free wifi as most are closed during RMCO. Lots of promises, no action. At checkout: "Internet is working fine. No one is having any problems." Not! Several fruit flies in the room. At least a Mozzy, too, as woke up with three hives. Another guest was complaining of a dysfunctional toilet, though mine was fine. Such a shame - the physical plant is rustic but charming. Will not be returning any time soon.
