I would like to first thank very much for taking time to review our hotel. We are working very hard to make this a comfortable place for every guest. We are sorry that some of the amenities that you once enjoyed are no longer part of the hotel, but we also know that the reasons most people come to visit are to make memories with family, and friends. We would like the give them a warm and inviting place to do that. Thank you very much for noticing the upgrades that we have put in place. If you ever feel that we need to make a change to a room to make it more comfortable for you and your family, please feel free to ask. Something as little as change the lighting for softer light we can do very quickly. We really do want you to enjoy your stay. Our apologies for the chairs in the parking lot although unsightly were being donated to charity for families in need. They have all been removed since your stay. Almost all of our furniture is donated to needy families. I am not certain who stopped by to ask about housekeeping services. I am the manager and I do not recall stopping by your room unannounced. I will most certainly speak with my staff to assure guest are not disturbed this way again. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Thank you again for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate your loyalty and we look forward to having you as our guest again soon.
