When traveling with pets, you have very limited hotel options. We booked this hotel as it was halfway between our home and our vacation destination. Upon checking in, the front desk attendant was nice enough to move our room to the bottom floor because we had dogs and it would

Hi Rebecca M, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with our hotel. Firstly, I am so sorry about the problems you had with the cleanliness of your room and especially with the noise from the fire alarm. I understand this is not the experience you want to have halfway before your vacation. Your review will be shared with our management and maintenance team for immediate actions necessary. I would also like to follow up on this situation that is why I have sent you a private message to obtain more information. I hope that you can respond at your soonest available time.
