D an I traveled all day yesterday; flew to Houston and then on to Ft. Lauderdale, arriving around 10:30 PM. The weather was lovely, breezy and 60ish and we enjoyed the feeling we'd finally arrived, had one night to spend and then.....off on week long cruise. Although we were hungry (no food on airlines these days), that was the only vaguely uncomfortable feeling. We figured we'd find someplace to catch a quick bite before turning in for the night.
Nothing in this room of ours worked properly; from the lock on the door to the bathroom sink. A funky musty smelling cramped space with an air conditioner that required a stiff kick periodically to quit making a grinding sound, a bag of a prior guest's food in the microwave, and burned out light bulbs were but some of the wonders of room 127. If this was an inexpensive room for the night, I'd (maybe) understand but this was not the super cheap deal of the season by any means. We've staying in Comfort Inns in Washington that were no four star resorts but were at least well maintained and functional.

This is our third stay in a Ft. Lauderdale hotel; next time we'll finally get it: no more overnights in places adjacent to the cruise terminal.
