I just wanted to give parents a heads up on our hotel experience. I planned my son's trip to the CGA for the Cadet for a Day program. Due to finances, and the fact that he is already 18, we decided to send him on his own. He was flying in to PVD, and we booked a room for him for two separate nights - the one before and the one after the program. When checking with the hotel on a different matter the night before he was flying out, I mentioned that he was 18, and found out that in no uncertain terms he would not be allowed to check in without someone 21 years old with him. I called the hotel 1-800 number, and they called the hotel as well, with no luck (these hotels are independently owned and operated). Sorry we can't help you was basically the message, but they did offer to give us phone numbers for other hotels. The hotel clerk told me she thought the whole state was the same, but fortunately we found a motel he could check in to being 18. Just want to let everyone know to check, because their website did not have any warnings that I saw (If they were there, they were not noticeable). I was in panic mode until I confirmed a new reservation......By the way, the NO ONE UNDER 21 hotel was the Best Western Airport Inn. Funny how these boys are old enough to join the service and be willing to risk their lives for their country, but are not old enough to check into a hotel room.
