Do not bring one speck of sand back to your room
Posted Jan 22, 2017
Do not bring one speck of sand back to your room at this motel near the ocean. Upon arrival the owner had me sign a waiver and said it just meant that we would not damage the room and no smoking. I verbally agreed, and I do admit I didn't actually read the entire one page document, but apparently somewhere in there I also consented to absolutely no sand in the room.
The next morning after rushing to the beach so we could come back and shower before check out we were confronted by the owner when we went into the room to shower. He stated that if there was any sand in the room we would be charged and he came to our balcony and loudly swept the front porch tisking at us while we tried to get ourselves clean and out of the room. He stated he would need to see the room and check for sand and that I had signed a contract last night, which he happened to have on him.
After the harassment and when we finally did leave the room, I informed him he can come check and see if we had indeed inundated his room with sand. He then stated that he has had rather large plumbing bills due to the amount of sand left in the shower and this is why he now harasses his guests.
My boyfriend and his kids and I all felt harassed and like we were going to be charged even more for a room that was already a different price than I had originally agreed to on Expedia. Do yourself a favor and do not bother with the Pacific Coast Inn.
