Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize for any areas in our hotel that seem "less clean". We have been running full occupancy, due to "construction" in our area. Our hallways, if not cleaned constantly, will see above average "tracked in dirt." Carpets, comforters, and even pillows will go through a normal cleaning cycle monthly. I will speak to the staff to make sure guest do not land in rooms that are down for cleaning service. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I have been a part of this hotel for 28 years and believe there is an amount of pride and commitment that lives in this hotel among it's employees. Possibly part of the hands that built it? Thank you to your friend, and thank you for being a return customer always!
