There was nothing wrong with the hotel, check in was fantastic, staff were great, room was updated and looked modern in stature. I think what irked me the most was you pay that much for a room, and there is no breakfast included or even a coupon for the restuarant downstairs, you think something would be added with our stay or least to tempt you to spend your money in the hotel rather then take it some where else.
What really got under my skin was the parking or lack of it! We parked in the lot across the street from the hotel, because I do not think the hotel has parking on site, we paid for as much as we could, the twelve hours, and because we over stayed our welcome by twenty minutes, there was a parking ticket sitting on windshield when we left. I did notice cars in the parking lot with parking passes from another hotel on the dashes of there cars, maybe the Coast could look at doing the samething.
I have paid a lot less at other hotels and have got a lot more in return.
