For LBTS, my first choice would probably be UHRGS, but if that's too expensive or already booked, you might want to try the KJBV.

Patrick, I'd love to know which hotels/motels those acronyms pertain to. I have a list of accommodations along El Mar Drive in front of me and don't see any matching those acronyms. Please "spell it out" for me.

Thank you.

Hi Heartburn - haven't talked to you in a while! I think Patrick is just being silly!!!!

WhyNot: GoTravel is very reluctant to suggest Captain's Quarters, one of her favorite places, because of a problem I had there. But I have to honestly tell you that it is a very clean, decent place to stay with a beautiful courtyard and pool area situated on a beautiful beach! You just step down from the patio right onto the beach. I would definitely stay there again! There's a hotel next door that has a pool bar that serves inexpensive, yummy drinks and some food, which is a nice convenience.

It seemed as though some of the hotels in LBTS were dumpy (at least from the outside), and despite my room problem, was glad to stay at CQ's.

If you decide to stay there, just be sure to ask for the name of the person you make the reservation with, date and time, etc. They don't send a confirmation.

I hope this helps!

I can't believe that after the discussion about not knowing what LBTS, (and I for one didn't have a clue either), that somebody actually took my post seriously. Talk about whizz over the head. Sorry, if you didn't get it.

Sorry.... I was just calling Patrick on his silly response. Thought I'd put on my duhhhhhh cap and have some fun with him! I really do have a list of all the decent looking motels along El Mar Drive... in case anybody wants it. ([email protected])

It's difficult for anyone to find a listing of all those motels along El Mar, so I took a drive up that way a few weeks ago and made a list. By the way (I dare not write "BTW"...lol) all the motels that were owned by the same company north of the pier area on both sides of El Mar are fenced up and out of business or waiting to be renovated or something of that nature. Just thought I'd throw that info out there for anyone trying to reach them. Sorry, I don't recall the name, but would probably remember if anyone mentioned it.

Sorry, my fingers were moving too fast!

WhyNot: FYI (oh no, more intials).....

When I made my reservations with CQ's, I requested a room with double beds and a kitchenette. I was traveling with a female friend....not my husband. I asked the very male, heavy accented, gentleman who took my reservation if I needed to send a down payment and if I could get a confirmation. He told me it was not necessary. (Because this is a small mom and pop place, I didn't think this was strange).

Upon arrival (late at night, after the office was closed - they left the key), we found ourselves in the smallest room I've ever seen with one bed and no kitchenette! In the morning we checked with the office, and were told by the female owner that we got the room we asked for. I told her that was wrong, and she asked me who I made the reservation with. When I told her it was with a male who had a thick accent, she commented that she is the only one who makes reservations. I told her she sounds like a large male with a thick accent on the phone (the young office personnel were looking at each other uncomfortably).

I came to the conclusion that they don't ask for deposits and give confirmations so that they can change things around as they feel necessary. We ended up moving our luggage to four different rooms on our vacation, but it was better than staying in the initial room.

My suggestion to you is ask for the name of the person who takes your reservation, and then send a small down payment with your own confirmation - a letter or something stating what the down payment is for and who you spoke to.

I know this sounds like too much trouble, but I would definitely stay there again if I just took these few small steps.

Then again, I was so happy to get out of Buffalo in March on short notice, I might have stayed just about anywhere!!!

Have fun...and the beach there is beautiful!!!

the people who know LBTS, want to keep it a secret because it is such a nice beachtown that we never type out the town's name.
