Talked to KD today,


That's a great report. Is their pet policy staying the same?

Pet policy will remain the same...

I dont expect any changes for a little while, IF any..  I am trying to be optimistic,, ;D

The Lunch room downstairs is typically closed during the week, because of low traffic count... IF the motel is full it would be open... It is "almost" always open on the weekends.... This weekend it was open on sat and sunday as usual.

I did get to meet one of the co-owners today, KD introduced me and and we basiclally covered our "arrangment with him....  LOL, 
A lot of info for the poor guy,
They are still getting their feet on the ground,
AND I am pretty sure he was having trouble understanding English... (if you catch my meaning)..

I will be back Labor Day weekend and will try to talk to him again..

I am not getting real positive vibes from the owners yet, KD is very nervous and apprehensive,  as I said I am trying to remain positive..

I did try to meet with the other motel owner, but her daughter was having a baby this weekend, so I will call her Monday for more details..  And then meet with her Labor day weekend again..

Thats about it.. Town was slow this weekend considering it was supposed to be "Car Show Weekend"....  >:( >:(  Of course it wasnt because it has been rescheduled...

Questions? comment..     Post them..     PM me..

We set up reservations for the night of 9/2.  Everything was easy to do.  Had to call back to assure a ground-level room for my wife (who can't do stairs right now because of her hip).

Palallin... who did you talk to..  Did you verify room rate over phone?  IF not suggest you do so when you check in...  Maybe I will see you...

Okie....  The Hilton!!!  :o :o,    Special occasion?

My kid has his 10th birthday and is always talking wanting to stay down at the Hilton.  I am a diamond member so I figured I would surprise him.

My made the call, so I don't know, but the person acknowledged our record of staying there and quoted us $45 ($40 for the room, $5 for the 20 yr old boy, $0 for the 17 yr old--kid rate).

We'll be arriving sometime Sunday afternoon or early evening--not making rigid plans yet.

Report?,   Yes.  It;s not good..

I was there 3 days, never saw the owners, their vehicle was gone all day, but showed up in the evening..
K.D. Has been at work everyday open to close since the new owners took over, 4 weeks ago this Wed.
NO days off, NO time off, NO lunch breaks. The new guys are using her up! I am not sure how long she will last!!  This whole situation really frustrates me. !!!  we brought her in 3 meals this weekend, just so I knkkew she was eating. Obviously she was most appreciative for fresh food.. ;D   I do expect things there to change VERY soon :o 

I have made temporary arrangememts which we can take advantage of as of SEPT 20,. If we have to us these guys for the winter, it will work fine.. they are open all winter. and we have worked out a discounted rate..  Details later..

I also have 2 different avenues going for a full time location, I will know more on that in the next couple of weeks..

I also talked to K.D., If she decides to relocate to another Motel, AND if they are willing to work with us, I told her we would consider going with her. That would give her a little more pull on her resume'. :)

For the time being, we will continue to support K.D. 
If you do stay there, stop in and tell her hi, give her a friendly smile.  She is literally on her own at the motel right now...
If your staying somewhere else in town, stop in and say hi.. bring her a small pizza, hamburger and fries, whatever.  Guarantee the smile will make wirth your effort..

any other questions? Comments?  Post them or PM me....  Dan

My parents went today. They were given a room. When they opened the door, it was still occupied!!  Coolers, luggage, etc everywhere. It was around 3:00. That means 2 things...#1...the room wasnít cleaned or they would have known. #2....they were lucky someone wasnít actually in the room.

OK, That just sux!! 

She is so overwhelmed. Last week 125 hours for her!!  I can't even imagine... 6:30 am to 11pm or so.!! >:( >:(.

I will make a call tomorrow and see if we can get the TEMP motel deal rolling before the 20th..   That way if we try to stay at Classic and there is a problem, we have a back-up plan..

I will post tomorrow as soon I get a go ahead..

Bear with me people, I will get this ironed out..!!
