Thank you so much for taking the time to review and rate us. We are so happy that you enjoyed the room, our location and the breakfast. Also, we are thrilled that you found our staff to be excellent and I will be sharing this with them. Thank you! Lastly, I will be addressing the additional staffing needs regarding breakfast with the supervisor today and ensure that this does not happen again. Our apologies if you or anyone else had to wait for food our drink during our breakfast. This is not acceptable and we will take care of it immediately. Thanks for your candid feedback and kind words, once again. Warm regards,
Good hotel stay marred by one problem.
Jun 12, 2016 by Chelsea, Front Office Manager
Thank you for your comments. I am sorry to hear that your stay was marred by the original elevator being unavailable for use. We are currently in the process of moving our main entrance to Calle Principal to ensure that those needing the elevator will be able to access it easily without the short flight of stairs. Unfortunately, until we are able to do so, we are making do with what we have available. The original elevator is unable to be fixed whatsoever, and has had its cables cut, as it does not meet modern standards in terms of size (it is very small). If you decide to come and visit again in the future, please let us know that way we may ensure we place you in the ADA accessible rooms nearer to the working elevator. Thank you again for staying with us!
