Thank you for your comments about our hotel. The shuttle is one of our best assets. I'm not sure if you have noticed, but we are currently renovating the hotel. We have finished our lobby and breakfast room and working on the guestrooms. We hope to see you again in the future.

Thank you for your feedback. We are a little disappointed that you found the breakfast lacking as many of our guests have been quite happy with what we have to offer. During your stay, you may seen construction on the rooms, with new carpeting, new bathrooms, etc. We are happy that you liked the shuttle, though and hope to see you again in the future.
