COVID-19 Safety

Dear Guest, Thank you for your business during these difficult times. In an effort to protect the safety of our guests and staff we have made the following changes. For stays that are longer than one night there will be NO ROOM SERVICE. However, we will offer a towel exchange in which guests can have used towels replaced with fresh towels. In addition, the use of face coverings are required in public areas of the premises such as the lobby and towel room. Lastly we have also updated our sanitation efforts in our rooms as well. We hope to return to normal operations when safe to do so, until then we thank you for patronage in these uncertain times.
