I love this place

Dear Ashburn1, Thank you for your review of the Red Lion. I would like to apologize your visit did not fully meet your expectations. I greatly appreciate your comments regarding the information our reception team relays at check-in especially the supply of fans in all of our bedrooms and the directions the team gives. I can only apologize as the team will normally try and give the shortest route to the bedroom which may not include the elevator. Again, please accept our apologies. Once again, I would like to thank you and I do hope you will stop by again in the future to see all the improvements we are constantly undertaking. Sincerely, William Weis General Manager
