Is there stayover service when staying at the Inn multiple nights?
For guests staying multiple nights, we currently have a no-room-access housekeeping policy—our team members will not enter a guest’s room to clean it. Instead, if a guest requests, our team will deliver new bed linens, towels, and any other needed amenities in a bag that is left outside the guest’s room door. The guest can then put any dirty linens and towels in the bag and leave it and any trash bag outside the door for our team to collect.
