Yesterday morning we packed it up and drove 2 hours west to San Diego. Around 11:30am we arrived at the Mission Bay RV Resort. We didn’t have a reservation, but I called a few hours earlier to see if they had space, and they said they did. I asked if we should make a reservation and the lady said we didn’t need one if we would be there before 5. I said we would be there in a couple hours, so she said ok and no mention of a check-in time.
When we arrived, I went to the front desk and tried to check in. The guy behind the counter said I couldn’t check in until 2pm. Well that wasn’t going to work because we had to get our chores done before the birthday party we were going to at 3pm. The guy said if I wanted to check in at 11:30 am, I would have to pay for two days. Well no thanks, and I walked out.
As I was walking to the truck, the guy ran out the door and said that he could let me check in at 12:30. Ya, no thanks. I called Santa Fe RV Park Resort up the street and they said they’d let us check in right away. Cost for one night was $67.63.
We got our laundry done, scrubbed down the trailer and took long showers to get pretty for the 1 year birthday celebration for Madeline.
