Facility called 2 days prior to stay stating my card wouldn’t process for a prepaid stay. Was told to call Travelocity and then call back. When I called back was told it was just because they tried to run it to early. Elevator was out of order for over 12 hours. Pool/hot tub was not available (would have been fine but we were told ahead of time they were available).

We are so very sorry for your experience with our hotel. We never expected for the elevator to go down as it was not planned but was able to get it up same day, which we were so grateful for. We also did not expect the pool to have issues as well but the company was called out and they were able to fix it as well. Such a bummer we know but definitely not the normal of our hotel as you can see form our reviews.

Using sustainable product and very little plastic materials. This shows that the company was conscious about environment.

Thank you for sharing your experience at our hotel. We appreciate your feedback and are delighted to hear you had a great stay. We take great pride in not only meeting, but also exceeding the expectations of every guest. We certainly hope the shared elevator wasn't an inconvenience for you and your family. Our cleaning staff try not to inconvenience our guest in any way so we hope this was the case. Hearing directly from our guests is integral to our ability to continue to enhance our service.
