Thank you for letting us know about your recent stay. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations but I am glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay overall. We are actually painting the guest room doors and throughout the property right now. The vending machine does work so I apologize that there weren't many items in it and I will double check to make sure it is working properly. We will also be doing updates over the winter so I hope you will give us another chance. Derrick Medcalf, General Manager
