Thus far we have stayed at two Holiday Inns and a Best Western. The first Holiday Inn was a nice little place afforded to us by the folks that are interested in Clancy coming to work for them. They had cookies and milk. They had a free continental breakfast that was worth a darn with unusually good biscuits and gravy for a non-southern place. And they had a fridge in the room. The second place was a Best Western, which wasn’t nearly as nice. The breakfast was free but pretty pathetic. No cookies and milk.
So now we’re at another Holiday Inn at the Zaradome. It’s a reasonably nice room. An indoor pool that you would not believe. No free food, including cookies and milk and breakfast. No fridge. But they do have an overpriced restaurant that I eat at. And get milk, for a price.
All of this is the long way of saying that because of the free continental breakfast that I had at the first Holiday Inn and the Best Western, I didn’t get to eat the high-faux-fiber cereal that I brought and felt bad about that cause my cereal is certainly healthier. So finally we get to a hotel where there is no free breakfast so I am perfectly free to eat my cereal… and I have no place to store the milk. So, gosh, now I can’t have free breakfast and the most convenient option is to spend money at their nice little restaurant. The so-so Holiday Inn that we stayed at previously and the downer Best Western both managed to have a fridge, yet this posh hotel cannot manage it? Unlikely.
So now I walk to a nearby convenience store and pick up milk. My cereal is now costing me $3 ($1 for the cereal and $2 for the milk). Kinda sucks. But I’ll be darn if I’m giving into this hotel’s weak-arse attempt to get me to eat their overpriced breakfast. I’ll eat overpriced cereal first. Apparently.
