Stayed for 5 nights while dealing with a family medical emergency. They only made the bed twice. They never vacuumed or cleaned the room. I had to go down to ask for toilet paper, tissues and soaps. They had made the bed but nothing else. One night we came back from the

Dear Kevin, Thank you for your feedback. I would love to speak with you to see if we can get more information and see what we can do to make it right. We will certainly investigate the housekeeper who serviced your room. It is normal to have the sheets changed every two days unless requested otherwise as was indicated on the environmental sign by the bed or on the bed when you arrived. It's standard for hotels for quite a few years now to save water and energy however the other things should have been cleaned, vacuumed and replenished your toiletries. I wish you had spoken to the staff regarding this before check out so we could have made it right. I do know that you brought some things to their attention which the handled right away. I know it can seem like an inconvenience to not be able to extend the pool hours but I checked the occupancy during your stay and we were actually about 4 to 5 times busier than you thought and the that are by the pool were occupied on some days. The lights are actually on a timer and so we want to make sure you are safely out of the pool area before they turn off to avoid any accidents. However, it does sound like there were many other issues and we will certainly address them all and ensure that everything is handled. In 10 years I have never heard of anyone getting folliculitis before so I'm not sure what happened as we do have a very strict cleaning regiment for our pool and hot tub. I am so sorry for your experience when you stayed with us and we would really love to have you back and make sure your stay is exceptional.

Staff is super helpful, we got one of their fancy rooms with a balcony overlooking the pool and amazing jacuzzi tub! Our only issue was the hot water not being hot, they quickly turned it up because when it’s slower mid week it becomes too hot, that makes sense so make sure to

I stayed here because the hotel was close to my work place, and it was near my family. I was able to visit my grandson and relax, plus close enough to work the next day. Service was excellent m I showed up earlier and was able to check in. Staff was great. Breakfast could have

We have stayed in MANY hotels. I have never seen a hotel that didn't have an elevator. They offer luggage carts, but that only helps if you are downstairs. An there are no ramps up to the sidewalk from the parking lot to get the luggage carts up. Now I know why it asks if you

Dear Lovely Rita, Thank you for your review. Yes, that is why we indicate ground floor or 2nd floor due to not having an elevator. I am sorry if it was an inconvenience, it is quite common for hotels with just 2 floors to have no elevator. Thank you for letting me know about the note that said we offer rollaways in that room, I searched all websites and found one 3rd party website that had the wrong information and I fixed it. The max capacity for 2 queens is 4 guests and it is impossible to book more than 4 online so I"m not sure how it let you book 5 guests in the room but I'll try to find your reservation to see where it was booked to ensure that all the settings in all websites are correct. I do appreciate your honest assessment of our property with sharing what was good and what was a challenge for you. We appreciate the feedback.

"rooms are too small for 2 beds. request single bed room if that meets your needs"
