Sunday was soooo much better than Saturday! I’m not sure if it was the weather or the normal course of things, but there was hardly anyone there!

After we were finished, we went to eat downtown.

We walked around and found this cool paper store.

We also found the Beekman Arms, where we will probably be staying next year.  The Quality Inn was B.A.D.  Take a look:

Those are the keys to all the rooms we were shuffled into during our 3 night stay.   We checked into room 219 Friday night.  After we had unpacked our clothes and gotten ready for bed, Mrs S discovered there was no hot water in the sink.  After several minutes of running, it still felt like ice.  Deciding this was not too terrible a problem, we decided to use the tub instead.  It was then we discovered the tub did not drain – at all.  There was 2″ of standing water.  Needless to say, we had to move.  The front desk quickly brought us the keys to room 210. 

We stayed in room 210 Friday night and Saturday night.  Though, the shower was a little on the chilly side.  Sunday morning, Mom was in the shower and the water completely shut off!  I called the front desk and asked that they check our room.  When we returned from the festival Sunday evening, we got a call from the front desk.  They said our toilet was leaking into the room below us.  They said we needed to move to another room.  Now, this was not such a big deal; however, they did not offer to compensate us for all the trouble.  We had to ask.  They acted like it was no big deal.

Once again, we moved.  Now in room 212, we began unpacking, again.  The room felt very chilly and a little loud.  After a few minutes, I asked if the window was open.  Mom & Mrs S thought  not, but I asked them to check anyway.  Sure enough, not only was the window open, the latch was broken and would not close.  Now, the temp was dipping into the 30s, and we were only on the 2nd story. 

We finally ended up in room 213 late Sunday night.  Yes, they finally did compensate us; however, I think next year a B&B is in our itinerary.  There is no way I will risk another experience like this one again.

Tomorrow: WEBS and stash addition
