    The difference between online and in person was two dollars today so... I wasted two bucks on Habib

    Had the opportunity to tell him I wanted:
    Toilet paper
    Coffee
    Sugar
    Creamer

    Online? Uhhh yeah

    Those high rates go to the 5th when arkansas runs the oosers off public. They know me.
    Learning as I go. Mistakes are bound to happen.

    While waiting i could have hooked up with a lonely chatty woman from Wisconsin.
    If she only had blonde hair and a Wisconsin accent. Looked like arkansas moved to Wisconsin. JK.
    I'm happily married for 35 yrs.

    If you ever call the online or off site reservations center and they tell you they have no vacancies then call the hotel/motel directly.

    Many off site reservations centers are given a block of rooms and when they sell those they have no more to sell.

    Also if you absolutely need that property guarantee your reservation for late arrival.

    Otherwise they may “walk” you to another hotel which could put you out in BFE.

    IMO

    Probably. But at that rate you only get 1 square of TP. And it's single ply.

    When I stayed there they had all the windows siliconed shut, must be a summer thing to keep the humidity out. I was wondering if that is common down there?

    Window open but some clever carpenter took the egress out. This is a fire escape? Note the strip of wood nailed to the jam. 16094353595097502225364764470428.jpg

    Y’all might also consider renting an RV for your group hunting locations.

    Just two cents worth.

    I've been living out of the suitcase on and off for business since 1992 and have learned a few lessons about hotels. I've stayed in the roach infested roadside inns to the Ritz-Carlton in Vienna, Bahamas and France, I've seen it all. Since 2015 stateside, the only hotel I will stay in is the Holiday inn Express. They are the only chain that I found that are decently priced and have comfortable beds consistently across the country. The breakfasts are great and the coffee makers rock !! If you get a cheap hotel, you're going to get crappy accommodations.....
