... we were positive about some of our stays is that there they got the customer service right: they brought what was asked for with acceptable delays. Some of the other places we stayed in seemed to leave a lot to be desired as far as customer service: extremely long delays for food (over an hour was not uncommon), cold food, presenting food that was not as described, and, in one case, telling blatant lies to try to avoid having to put themselves out at ...
