After watching the Blough pass, we decided to grab dinner at the pasty place in Mackinaw City. That was pretty good although I got the chicken pasty this time (which is probably a bit of a sacrilege). Then we headed up to my final destination, Sault Ste Marie.
I was going to stay at the Holiday Inn Express but apparently the reservation I made for a room with two beds (I was traveling with my mom) turned into a room with a king sized bed and a jaccuzzi. So I asked for alternatives and the hotel was booked solid (probably overbooked). Then I asked for a rollaway but they couldn't give me one because of a supposed fire hazard. So then I asked for my money back but they said they couldn't refund me because I did the super saver and the reservation came through as "first available" or some such. I ended up saying I didn't want the room.
So I went to the Ojibway (which should have been my first choice anyway), they had a room. I called the 1-800 number for Holiday Inn and got the same runaround. So I called Discover to have the payment disputed, hopefully that will work. If not, I will chock that up to experience and move on.
It turned out fine for me, because the Ojibway is right next to the locks, so I could walk over to catch my next ship.
