Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this honest and detailed review. We want to know where we're getting it right and where we can improve so that we can always offer our guests the best service possible. I want to let you know, we are getting ready to replace our mattresses in the very near future, and that bed frame will go along with all of our old mattresses. Breakfast is an ever-evolving amenity that we offer and we love to hear feedback and ideas from guests on how we can improve - if you have any details or specifics that you would like to see, we'd love to hear them! Please feel free to give me a call at 618-351-6611 or shoot me an email at bwsigm@wnwhospitality.com.
