Owner Response
twinsbayinn, Guest Relations Manager at Twins Bay Inn, responded to this review
Dear Misty Patch, Thank you for stopping by at around 6:56pm on 2/2/19 at our property and for calling the GM (you know what phrase you used). It's a shame that people are discriminatory to hard working human beings. Falsifying facts it is against the society's values and laws. We will be contacting Tripadvisor on how we can upload the video footage showing you Ms. Patch from the time of your arrival until you Ms. Patch were told to leave the property. Again falsifying facts it is against the society's values and laws. "If we desire a society of peace, then we cannot achieve such a society through violence. If we desire a society without discrimination, then we must not discriminate against anyone in the process of building this society. If we desire a society that is Democratic, then democracy must become a means as well as an end." Bayard Rustin-Leader The Staff at Twins Bay Inn
