The suites are nice. One suite was not ready. Front desk clerk was totally disinterested. Everything was prepaid so, I gave him my daughter's name so she could come back later and pick up the key. When she went back he wanted her credit card for "incidentals " after he already had taken mine. I guess he thought he could charge us twice. The breakfast is barely adequate and never varies from trip to trip. It is not inexpensive to stay there and I feel they could try harder.

Hello, Thank you for your response. We did allow early check-in for one of your suites, but the other was not available until check-in time. We do require security deposits for all rooms as well. Thank you.
