We apologize for not meeting and or exceeding your expectations. We are still under renovations and we are working hard to get things finished in a timely manner. As far as the cleanliness issues we greatly apologize. This is not how things are done or should be done and I will be going over our policies and procedures to see where we can make improvements. Once renovations are complete the property will be amazing and we urge you to give us a second chance to redeem ourselves.
