Motorcycle rally activities mar annual vacation
Last week we were anticipating our yearly vacation at a Myrtle Beach resort and then in the middle of the week the Rough Riders Bike Club checked-in and the hotel became a site for burn-outs from 6 p.m. til 3:30 a.m., along with profanity, public drinking, pot smoking. We could no longer enter the parking garage for the make-shift drag strip.
I called the police and they showed up once and this nightmare continued for the last three nights of our stay. We were truly in a vacation prison. You couldn't leave the hotel and couldn't return.
Hotel employees were terrified and security was useless. Plus, I also want to mention the local news covered a story on all the good the Rough Riders do for children of the community. Where was this compassion for hotel guests?
The police department really dropped the ball, which is unfortunate for vacationers.
