Hotel Evacuee Lisa Chretien says, "FEMA didn't extend me, so I'll move in with my daughter." It may not be ideal, but at least Chretien has somewhere to go. Chretien says, "I have to stay there from now until September. It's not easy moving from here to there. By the grace of God, I guess I'll make it. Too bad it will be hurricane season again by the time I move back home."
One time of the year Lisa and the other 79 families staying in the Best Suites Hotel, don't even want to think about, especially not on check out day. Best Suites Manager David Rothschild says, "We still have 20 rooms in house that need to check out, none of them have authorization numbers. So we're just asking for another form of payment, so we can get all this resolved. They're a few guest that are really frustrated, and we're just trying to help them. They're getting pretty upset, and I don't blame them."
