Guest Recommendations
We felt neglected, like our room.
"My friend and I stayed two nights and found the bathroom to be dirty and pealing when we arrived (but with clean towels). After we returned the next day from our family reunion, we found our room not cleaned, wet towels still where we left them, beds unmade, nothing cleaned up and replenished, no coffee or new cups etc. We went to the front desk and were told the cleaning ladies had already left. We were given clean towels and coffee to carry back to our room and told that no one could help us because there were only 12 rooms filled and no one but him behind the desk. We thought that renting the room for 2 nights we might have been given better service."
