Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. I apologize you saw an advertisement for the hot tub which we no longer have. If you wouldn't mind telling us where you saw that as we cannot find it anywhere. We hope to see you again soon. Best, Shawn Green Director of Rooms Division

Dear Guest, We apologize your recent stay was not up to our usual standards of excellence. We did experience a temporary internet and phone issue caused by our outside carrier and worked quickly to resolve it and get all guests checked in. If indeed you were charged for the vending items in error please feel free to reach out and I would be happy to reimburse you for them. Typically if the item is not dispensed the machine is calibrated to not charge the card used. We hope you will give us another opportunity in the future. Best, Shawn Green Director of Rooms Division
