Thank you Jesse for taking the time to do a review. We apologize for the restaurant being closed. We are like everyone else are short staffed. We apologize for any inconveniences. We are also going under room renovations this fall. We hope you will come back and see our improvements.

Thank you for your feedback! We actually just completed a full hallway renovation within the past year and are currently in the process of a full room renovation as well. Could you happen to let me know what room you stayed in so I can follow-up with my staff regarding room cleanliness? That is definitely not a normal occurrence for us, and I would like to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Thank you very much for all of your feedback and the 4-star review! We do apologize about the elevator and pool issues. We are working on resolving both of them now. As for the glass in the pool, that is definitely not allowed, so we will make sure to better monitor that in the future. Please join us again in the future!

Thank you very much for staying with us and for leaving a review of your recent stay. While we pride ourselves in our room cleanliness and service, it is evident that we did not meet our standards. A band-aid in the room is unacceptable and a prompt follow-up has been completed. We would really appreciate a chance to make this up to you. Please reach out to Neil U, Director of Hotel Operations during your next visit.

Thank you for staying with us. I deeply apologize for the musty mold odor that experienced during your recent stay in one of our first floor rooms. This is highly unacceptable as we try to provide a memorable experience to all of our guests. I would really appreciate a chance to make it up to you and your daughter. Please let me know next time you make your reservation. I really appreciate your feedback.
