I called the Blue Lantern Inn a short while ago after reviewing its "Wish you were here" package and senionr citizen discount and was put off quite a bit by the curt reply to my questions about these "specials." I was told that one room is available for tomorrow night (a Thursday), but since it is the last room, it is not eligible for the "Wish you were here" package. I was told like a schoolmarm would that it is clearly stated on the website that such offers are discretionary. No "I'm sorry that we can't accommodate you," or "Please consider us for your next visit to Dana Point," or "Let me help you find the disclaimer on the website," or anything of this nature. With one room left, they don't need my business. I imagine this woman would have been much nicer on a slow night. The places I patronize are nice to me all the time, not just when they want my money. And savvy proprietors know they have no way of knowing just how much money that might be...
