“All things considered, I found the experience not only fascinating, but very professionally run and staffed with obviously talented, experienced, and caring people. The facility is beautiful! I don’t know what it’s like on a normal day – who remembers normal, but yesterday I got a pretty good tour. The controls in place to deal with COVID-19 were obvious and understood by all and I felt very safe.”

“I traveled from York, PA for five and a half weeks and would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Everyone and everything was truly Five Star! Chris from valet, Christian, Nicole, Morgan, and Michelle were all outstanding and always knew how to make me smile even during this COVID-19 crisis. Christian even gave me a smiley face on my mask to show my happiness when I rang that bell. Thank you for a wonderful experience!”
