All I can say is the COVID -19 travel downturn has resulted in a lot of inattention to rooms and facilities: That is apparent here: 1. Ice only on 1st floor - not on 2 or 3. 2. Hand sanitizer by elevator on first floor (where sign says to use as we enter and exit) was empty around 7:00 p.m. I reported the problem but not filled by 0830 next a.m. I was told maintenance needed to do the refill. Too bad they didn’t check the level before they left the day before. 3. Our room had a very loose faucet - moved about 1/4 inch every time we turned it on. 4. Sink drain plug lifted about 1 mm so it drained very slowly - just not pleasant 5. Our microwave did not heat - it just turned on lights and made noises. 6. Cover for elevator panel broken The bed was really high and difficult to get in and out of. I liked that the sheets were soft though. Final note - Management is taking a very cavalier approach to IHG masking guidelines. This is egregious. My husband and I observed the manager for about 30 minutes on the morning of 2 Dec keeping her chin nice and warm with her mask on while she worked behind the front desk (getting the breakfast bag and coffee for guests was one of the tasks she performed). She had exchanges with guests (masked) and at least one employee (unmasked). When I asked why her mask wasn’t on she replied “I am having my coffee”. What I didn’t say was that her coffee must be terribly cold since her mask hadn’t been on for at least 30 minutes. Apparently IHG guidelines allow staff to have their masks off while interacting with guests as long as a convenient excuse, such as the need to enjoy a cup of coffee, is available. I would avoid this hotel if you have any concern about catching or spreading the virus until the virus is no longer a threat.

We are all about giving exceptional service to our guests and are committed to comfort in every way. I'm sorry there were a couple of issues you encountered that spoiled your stay.

I have conveyed your comments to the Hotel Management to work with the proper departments and the necessary improvements needed on our end. Your safety is our utmost priority during these trying times. I understand your disappointment when you saw that there were lapses in following the COVID 19 policies. Your feedback will help us improve our guest satisfaction experience. We will be working to improve and strengthen our commitment to the guidelines on health protocol measures against COVID-19 so that the same will not happen again. We hope you will join us again in the future and impart a better stay. Safe travels, Deborah R. Case Manager IHGService

Although it’s advertised on Trip Advisor that airport transportation is included, it is NOT. The description also says 3 miles from the airport, it’s twice that. 14.50 for an UBER ride. The place is filthy, front desk rude and grab and go breakfast gross. It’s in the middle of nowhere.

Stayed here again, but this time during a pandemic! This place is so great! I pass through from time to time and they are always so friendly! They are taking lots of precautions at the hotel during this time. Masks and gloves being worn is very assuring to me especially during this time. The rooms were beautiful and very clean as usual!! Stay at this place! The staff is great and it is in a cute little town!

I had to make a quick trip last week. I did not reserve a room because I did not know how far I would get that day. When I arrived I they young lady at the desk took care of me promptly. The place is super clean and the rooms are comfortable.
