I registered my reservation with AIRBNB- given the 3 night price, hit all the buttons, end of story. Get to the hotel- they say they have no reservation. It was only thanks to the head of the onsite sushi restaurant and her kindness that I turned back from walking off the site in disgust originally- back to that later.
So there was no staff to welcome guests- very unimpressive, and the owner , Leonard, agreed to come down so I could get a room. The room that I'd though I'd reserved was not available so he offered me another- turned out to be a dismal little, side room with on air conditioning and the deal breaker- NO TV. Leonard defended his position on this by saying "Well, you can go out and do things like hiking" Fat lot of good that does after sunset!
I immediately told him that was it and I refused to stay the night. In fact I got a much better hotel nearby as a result.
Last year when I came- great stay but now with the owner switching to this AIRBNB nonsense- forget itMore
