I am so sorry your stay with us did not meet your expectations. Our staff needs to be readily available to all of our guests at all times. I will share this review with them as I coach them on being visible and present. The issues you experienced in your room have highlighted the importance of our preventative maintenance program. A retooling of that program and emphasis on it is in place and your review will help underscore the importance of everything in a room being in place, being clean, and working as it should. We will be undergoing a major renovation soon and all of our guest rooms will be updates as well as the lobby and breakfast bar .

I am so sorry your location on the first floor was noisy. We are going to be renovating all of our guest rooms and they will be much more modern and updated. Our breakfast has already undergone a refresh. I know we only get one chance to make a first impression but I would love it if you would give us another chance to wow you.

This hotel had great staff who always greeted you with a smile. I had originally booked another hotel closer to family, but I could not possibly stay there based on the cleanliness. I then booked this hotel and drove the additional 30 minutes to get there. Pool was nice, the

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, especially after your less than satisfactory experience at another hotel. It is awesome that you were able to relax at our pool and in your room. Our staff is from the area and always willing to help with recommendations for restaurants. We can't wait to see you when you visit again.
