We were very satisfied and would recommend to others. We...

We got vouchers for free pop, wine or beer for the two nights we were...

I used to stay at this hotel for a long time when visiting my sons.....it's been awhile since I've stayed.....and I'm very sorry to say that I came back. When I checked in, I stood at the desk for awhile, waiting for someone to check me in....I could see a "manager" sitting in her office, but she didn't seem to...
