Delightful hotel

Clean and updated hotel and conference center and good breakfast but not in town so you must drive everywhere. The breakfast was "order off the restaurant menu" which was nice - lots of choice. It is ... more

Dishonest Cleaning Staff

Good Day Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I am not sure if you communicated this situation with your partner but I did meet with him and showed him the damages from your stay. As per our signed pet policy from yourself because of the damages to the guest room from your pet we did put charges through on the credit card given. These damages were discovered once the housekeeping staff went in to clean the room after you had left. I offered all of the damaged linens to your partner should he want to take them with him. He declined. It is unfortunate that the dog urinated on the unused bed in the room. We have to dispose of the duvet cover, duvet and mattress cover. You were charged the amount of our replacement costs of those items. I apologize if you did not receive satisfactory explanation when you spoke with housekeeping but as mentioned I did meet with your partner and went over everything with him. Respectfully Roberta Sawchyn, CHA General Manager
