Where do I start. I booked this room six months ahead of the trip. You would think I would get a decent room (three rooms actually) but I was stuck in an annex. With no elevator. On the third floor. No ice machine. Long hairs in the bathtub. Coffee packet was there, but it was missing the coffee maker. Not even next door to the main lodge, it was two doors down. Not at all happy.

Puffin was OK ...Travelocity was a complete failure and I will never consider using them again. the motel was not paid for the room by Travelocity and my crew was just lucky we ended up with a room. Just a lousy outfit.
