Absolutely no where to eat our breakfast. Concierge was snippy at both check-in and at breakfast. Won't be back.

Thank you for staying with us and for taking your time to review our property. Our guests/staffs safety is our number one concern and we have a very small lobby that is used for breakfast. The best option to safely serve breakfast is have people use our outdoor benches located in the front of the hotel or we have 4 tables with chairs surrounding the pool area. We apologize for not allowing people to eat in our lobby but we have already lost people close to us and cannot take that chance merely for convenience of eating breakfast. We wish you better luck at hotels in your future.
