We appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to share your perspective on your experience with us. It is unfortunate that our accommodations fell below our standards in cleanliness and comfort and we regret that breakfast was not a highlight of your stay either. Our team will follow-up on your concerns and address them entirely for the benefit of our future guests. Your experience is not one we're proud of, and we hope you'll give us a chance to do better in the future.
