FIRST the gritty stuff:
There was nobody at the desk when we arrived. We called out and it seemed to us that when Jeff finally emerged to greet us that he'd rather play what appeared to be a video game behind a wall. He was brief in his diction indicating a lack of refinement that is harmful if this is a first impression. A hotel is made or broken on first impressions.
Secondly, when he again showed us the pool and hot tub area he denigrated himself even further by saying and this is a direct quite, "should I put up the curtains if you're going to fool around in there?" My wife was so insulted and I gave him a look that would have killed... if he was smart enough to understand that look. (I do not think he was.)
The hot tub was foamy... and didn't appear to have been cleaned in a while so we just wrote it off completely. (in all fairness, all was better a few days later, and we did choose to enjoy the services provided.)
Now the good stuff:
Everything else was AWESOME!!!!!
Nicole was our maid (forgive me if that is an antiquated term.) She did everything and made us feel like we were guests in her home. Call it attitude, or whatever, I've seen so many of her peers do so much less than she did to make us as comfortable as possible. Nichole is a STAND-OUT in service.
Another crown jewel is that sweet little lady that worked so hard to provide us all with a stunning breakfast each day. I failed to get her name, mostly because she never sat down to play a video game! She served everyone like we were all royalty. OH, was the coffee great too!
We'll definitely return to this place on our next visit to Crossville. I only hope that Jeff doesn't continue to show such disregard to those people that he should serve half as well as Nicole does.
