Good day Megan, Thank you for the review , sorry there was a problem with your checkin . Sorry about the smoke break and when put smoke out and came in say sorry and ask how your day was and if reservation .

Good day Alexander, Glad to hear that your stay was good beside the breakfast time , we tell people at checkin the breakfast is lite and to be considerable to other people . We have a small breakfast area with not much room and we just ask people when there is lots of people to take turns sorry if you felt we were telling you what to take, it was not what you thought it was it was just to give other people a chance to use the ammenties . Sorry again if that how you took it.
