One big bummer after another!
Posted Aug 12, 2016 on Hotels
I was really excited to stay at the Daniel and picked one of our stops along the Maine coast based on reviews alone. I usually do not choose boutique hotels because I feel like they are overpriced and lack amenities. This confirmed my feelings. The hotel is very nice. Upon arrival we waited at the front desk for about 10 mins to find the front desk attendant in the restaurant. We were quickly checked in and off to our room. We wanted to use their vintage bikes to cruise around town but one of the bikes had a flat tire and they needed supplies to change it. We even offered to change the tube, but they did not have tubes. The private hot tub was closed due to a water leak/damage. So we decided to take a bath in our room. After filling up the tub, the water slowly drained out over time. We went downstairs to use the gym and the Tvs didn't work because some of the cable boxes were not plugged in, they had Xfinity remotes and Comcast boxes. Pressing power 100 times from all remotes to all cable boxes did nothing. I was so disappointed with the hotel, especially after all the glowing reviews. Just bad timing. We paid a lot of money to stay there! We were told that we should have let them know but they couldn't have moved our room anyway because the hotel was full. Lastly, if you want a fridge in your room, you need to request one. There isn't a fridge in all rooms! Super bummed. Great location, beautiful hotel. Needs some work before they can charge premium prices!
