Last week I was disappointed to find out that major hotel chain I usually stay with when I’m on the road had sold their property in Yuba City, California.
While searching for a replecement online I kept finding the Bonanza Inn. What concerned me was that it was only half the price of my regular hotel. That had to be bad, I thought.
Plus, I knew it was an older facility because I vaguely remembered it from when I lived in Yuba City as a kid in the mid-60s. But the pictures and reviews seemed okay so I signed up.
I could rough it for a night I figured. I didn’t even check to see if it included a breakfast bar and WiFi. For the price I was certain it didn’t.
Then I arrived and checked it out prepared to cancel and go hotel hunting again if need be. But…Surprise! Surprise!
The Bonanza Inn is a beautiful conference facility with great rooms including flat screen TVs and WiFi, etc. But there was no little breakfast bar.
No, indeed! It was a full American breakfast buffet with delicious bacon, eggs, and home fries, waffles and more! (I restrained myself…a little.)
I kept having the urge talk to someone there about how low their prices were but I thought better of it since I’m going back to YC soon and will certainly stay there again. And, who knows, maybe you will too! (shhhh…)
Anyway, I am still shaking my head in amazement that this hotel can charge so little or, perhaps, that the other one I frequent charges twice as without as good a breakfast. Somewhere behind the Bonanza there’s a very awesome manager or owner or team who knows the business and does it very well. Thank You! You are a good role model!
