Owner Response
Gordon M, Owner at Best Western East Zion Thunderbird Lodge, responded to this review
Now for the rest of the story: Your rather large purse, having been found on your bed, was turned in within a half hour of your departure. We searched your purse looking for contact information. We found one credit card and one one hundred dollar bill. Your purse was then placed in our safe. Then we called the phone number we found and left a message, we also emailed you to inform you that we had found your purse. I called a couple of days later and left another message. I asked my groundskeeper why there would be bugs crawling/flying around. He intimated that, per chance, it might be due to the fact that our property is surrounded by hills and mountains. As for our custom made aspen log furniture, we do occasionally have guests that prefer the standard mass produced compressed wood, cherry/mahogany stained furniture which, gladly, we are unable to provide. concerning the employee that you feel a need to belittle, that particular employee was impressed with how well you eviscerated her.
