Well I had an eventful weekend down in Sarasota seeing some friends and ended up staying the night in a hotel. What a disaster! Surprise, surprise on checking in the hotel was full and so I ended up having to pay full rate but when I asked for a room facing the sea I was suddenly offered quite a few rooms to choose from which kinda ruled out the full hotel bit.
The room was clean but small and a little worn but in fairness it was fine for one night. We then hit the beach and had a great time enjoying the beautiful clean clear water which was still warm and also managed to top up our tans on the beach. We then went back to the hotel for a quick shower and went out into Sarasota for something to eat in the evening.
The problems started when we returned to our room later that night – the couple in the room next door spent the whole night arguing and playing their TV very loudly. I had to call in security at 1am to try and get them to be quiet but the racked continued till about 4 am. As my wife told me the next morning – we should have stayed in a holiday villa!
