The Vibe Hotel

f you are in your 20's the Vibe Hotel is perfect for you! We decided to stay at the Vibe Hotel because it was near Kelly's house and it looked cool and hip. We had no Idea how cool it was. (You may notice as you read this post hat our opinion of The Vibe hotel kept changing back and fourth between really good and not so good. :)

We arrived right on time for check in to unload our suitcases and our room was not ready for us yet. After a short and polite conversation the young hip 20 something guy at the desk asked us for our driver's license put them on the copy machine and agreed to let us put our bags in the room even though it was not clean yet. End of conversation.

About two stores later we discovered we did not get our driver's license back. We called the hotel and they told us they held them until we pre-paid for the room. Never mind he never asked us to pay-whatever.

When we got back to our room after a full day of shopping and our room was made up it looked cute and had a great kitchen space for art making. Friday night was super quiet. The hotel woke up at 8 a.m. and you could hear people being busy around the hotel cleaning, playing basketball with a soccer ball, the hotel music came on, (Yes, I said the hotel's music) and other things that 20 year-olds do when they are away in hotels. This was not a problem we were already awake it was just interesting.

We decided to wait for Kelly outside once we got a call that she was near so that we could people watch. A 16 passenger bus pulled up, loaded a bunch of girls up and took off. Again interesting. We later discovered a list of tour options on the back of our hotel door.

When we got back to the hotel that night we discovered that their was a free comedy routine going on and the 16 passenger van as no dropping all kind of kids off at our hotel. We could hear the comedy show in our room and continued making art. Following this show their was loud rap music-like a club right in the center of our hotel until sometime after 11:30 when I fell asleep because I was exhausted. Again, due to the exhaustion the loud music/party was not a problem. it just made me feel old!

On Sunday we woke up to clanging beer bottler clean up and again the hotel music. We think it may have been a type of wake up call so everyone checked out on time.

Why do I say it's the perfect hotel for someone in their 20's? Well aside from the drinking, music, basketball, and comedy routine, they also offered a "movie room" three computer's with Internet aces, a Foosball table, ping-pong, and a tiki lounge that served as a space for continental breakfast. Also, if you're in you 20's you wouldn't mind not having any water pressure in your shower if you could have all of the above mentioned luxuries. :) Would we stay there again? It depends on when you ask us but it was fun and it had a great art table!

"Dude, pass the bongggg..." It was an 'interesting' hotel, wasn't it?

I still think the kitchen was the best part! That table ROCKED For art making!

I dunno, Jeane. I am still in my 20's and this sounds like a nightmare. I would totally be yelling at those kids to turn it down and keep quiet. Then again, I am in my late 20's...
At least the hotel looks adorable.

and never mind the fact that they had my credit/debot card as a prepay, so that was all a bunch of "It's the best answer a 20 year old can dream up." Period. But it was funky.
