 This was a getaway weekend gone bad. The Hotel was in tripadvisor which we never read and had 1 star. We ended up with no refund a room that had a door that wouldn't lock so we left. Found another place but it was pretty much a disaster with all the money spent and wasted full night. Well, all was not lost at least we ended up going through Daytona and took a little tour through the Harley dealership found this statue of Elvis pretty interesting... spent the rest of the day eating crab legs and drinking wine. 

Update: 3 years later that hotel there was condemned and torn down. Thank goodness noone else got screwed like we did.


  1. Not only was the weekend messed up, so is this blog images, not sure whats happened but none of the pictures downloaded. Sorry...

  2. I noticed the blog issues first thing this morning, and was not even able to comment. So very sorry to hear of your weekend, being less than hoped for. I hate it when these things happen, especially when so little time is available to relax and reconnect. Glad you are home and all is OK. Thanks for the great advice, read ALL the reviews.

  3. Sorry your trip didn't work out, but I enjoyed you lobster last night for supper - post will be up in a few days.

  4. Oh wish you had a better time this weekend and I wish I saw this blog post before we had breakfast! I am bookmarking it and will try this recipe perhaps next weekend!

  5. Oh that totally sucks Claudia, I'm so sorry for you. A waste of money when times are tough enough makes it even worse! If I were you I'd check out if they have a facebook and/or twitter account. Share the experience, you might get their attention and maybe a refund.

    I haven't had problems with blogger tonight.

    The bread looks fabulous!!!

  6. Yikes...what a disgusting resort! I would have left, too. But, on a happier note, your corn bread looks fabulous :)

  7. I'm so sorry about your weekend :( The cornbread looks terrific with blueberries, so yummy! your blog is working just fine for me actually.

    Your blueberry cornbread, really looks so inviting, and delish!

  21. Sorry about your trip :(
    I love your cornbread. I make mine with cherries but I just need to try it with blueberries, I love them. Thanks for the recipe!

  22. I can absolutely relate to your misfortunate mini getaway. With so little aggravating to waste it due to the misguidance from our so-called hospitality industry. I'm sure, that you did your very best to enjoy some part of it ;o) Hopefully the next experience will be better.

    I have yet to try making cornbread. Making some with berries sounds yummy.

    Ciao for now,

  23. So sorry to hear that you had such an unpleasant experience! At least you were able to see some beauty outside that place and got some pretty photos to bring home.

    As for this delicious looking cornbread, yum! It looks so moist and the bits of blueberry cooked in side are calling to me :D

  24. I hate when a much needed vacation doesn't go as well as it should!!

    I love the idea of blueberries in corn bread. The tart with the bread. Mmm

  25. What an unusual cornbread. I love the blueberries.

  26. I am definitely making this cornbread Claudia!

    I can't believe that they wouldn't accommodate you in anyway! At least give you a break on the weekend. Thankfully you were still in FL and not further away from home!


Thanks for visiting .. I love your comments :)
