No Vacancy There But Delightful Stay Here

I just returned from St. John’s Newfoundland.  Newfoundland and Labrador is Canada’s easternmost province.  Its strength and beauty lies in the people who live there.  They are friendly, down to earth, full of good humour and proud of their heritage.  The province’s economy is on an upswing and downtown St. John’s (capital of the province) shows evidence of the boom.  

I was attending a conference in St. John’s and was tardy in booking a hotel room.  By the time I made inquiries the rooms were all taken.  I found accommodation at At Wit’s Inn, a very comfortable Bed and Breakfast (B&B) a 20 minute walk from the conference hotel.  In the end, I am happy to have stayed somewhere unique, quiet and clean, where you are very comfortable and at the same time supporting a small family business.  There are 3 rooms in the B&B.  I’d stay there again.

Have you ever found a no vacancy sign and then found alternate accommodation and felt you got the better end of the deal?
