Mustang Checks Out HoLLiday Inn
We didn't check in, but did check out the HoLLiday Inn at Folly Beach, SC. The emphasis on the 2 L's is significant. While the lettering on the sign IS green and the font IS somewhat familiar and it IS an inn, it is not, however, part of the famous chain of 1 - L hotels.
Long before the internet brought forth competition for and fighting over domain names, this establishment was out there on its own in a world awash in Holiday Inns. It is a family owned operation and has 14 rooms to let. By and by one of the 1-L Inns arrived on Folly, but it has a few more than 14 rooms to let.
Careless folks might mistake one inn for the other, but certainly that confusion is not intentional. Folly Beach, the Edge of America, was a relatively isolated island so perhaps the 2-L folks were not aware of the 1-L's out there. So, when it comes to lodging on Folly, it's an L of a world.
If you think we're barking up the wrong tree with all of this, wait until you want to board a pet in the Low Country area. We now have the Howl-A-Day Inn Kennel in Summerville. It's a dog eat dog world out there.
