I apologize about the Housekeeper entering the room . He has been reprimanded for this and informed to knock before entering any room. I apologize that we didn't meet you expectations on breakfast and our trailer parking. In November we will be renovating the breakfast and lobby areas and adding new items to the bar to allow our guest more choices. I will be speaking to clerk in question about his demeanor with guest. But I hope you will visit us again so we can try and give you a better experience. Thank You Lynn Horn -GM
