Nice Hotel - No Transportation Services
Posted Aug 29, 2016
I took the new American Eagle Airline into Stillwater for a conference at OSU. When I got there, I called-up UBER and they picked me up from the airport and took me to the hotel – perfect! I thought about getting a rental car, but with UBER, who needs one anymore (ha-ha)? The next morning, there was no UBER driver to pick me up at 7:00 am, so I walked to OSU – no big deal just a 25 minute walk. However, my flight to Dallas left Stillwater at 7:00 am on Saturday, which meant I needed to be there at 6:00 am to go through security. I called around and there is no Taxi service in Stillwater – they went out of business when UBER moved into town. I checked with the Hotel Clerk and Wyndam does not offer an Airport shuttle in Stillwater. The limousine service does not open until 8:00 am on Saturday. I was stuck with no way to get to the Airport. I asked the clerk if I could pay a janitor or someone to give me a ride, but there were no takers. Google Maps shows the 3.4 mile walk from Wyndam to the Airport to be 1 hour and 12 minutes. So I left the hotel at 4:45 am and waked to the airport. I know airline services is new to Stillwater, but perhaps you could consider airport service, even if guests need to pay more for it. It put a negative spin on my overall stay. However, I did get some good exercise.
