Dear 449leoj, I am very sorry to read of your experiences while staying at our hotel. Upon speaking to the Front Office Agent you are referring too in your comments, it became clear that several issues inconveniencing other guests had occurred. As a non smoking facility and pet friendly only to service animals, we were surprised to encounter complaints from other guests due to your occupancy in our hotel. We appreciate feedback and will continue to strive in delivering outstanding accommodations and service to our valued guests. Sincerely, Kent B. General Manager
