Dear redhartleybatman, Let me first thank you for choosing to stay with us and also for taking the time to leave a review. I am so sorry that we were below your standards and our standards in housekeeping. This is totally unacceptable and I assure you that we will address this as we pride ourselves in service and cleanliness and this is very upsetting to hear. I hope that you will give us another opportunity to allow us to earn back your trust. Sincerely, Michael J Hayes, GM

I have never slept bettet in my life!!!!! The beds are awesome! We even checked out the mattress, we are planning to get a new mattress when we arrive back home this week.. i'm not going to stop until I find the ones at the commander! Comfortable isn't a strong enough word lol You will sleep for 8 hours + , with no problem ;) my husband told me, since we have been here, I don't move around all night, like home haha, I wake up in the same position as I did when I went to sleep :) Sheets, pillow cases, are the ideal quality!!!!!!
