6.37km from Interstate BridgeMy husband and I have frequented the Staybridge for years. This time we arrived from overseas and stayed 8 nights in our usual 2 bedroom suite. Everything was pretty much closed down, due to the measures to protect all guests and we appreciated the hotels efforts. I am writing this as I would like the manager to rethink the way they are requiring quests to go "outside in the weather" to access the laundry room. This is NOT necessary and sure is NOT convenient for your guests. The access to the laundry is through the exercise room and of course, it is closed. I would argue that you can still close the exercise room but allow guests to pass through to the laundry. Management could disable all machines, put sheets or blankets over each of them and tie down the cover with rope, remove the free weights and put signs explaining the closure and stress that if any guest abuses the closure requirement, they will immediately be asked to check out/leave. It is not acceptable in April in Oregon to require your guests to go outside to access the laundry room!!! It poured rain on us and we were pretty much soaked-it was ridiculous. I understand the need to keep your guests safe and I very much appreciate your efforts. But the way you are handling the laundry room is not acceptable. Please consider my suggestion to disable the exercise room and allow guests to pass through to the laundry, doesn't this make a lot more sense? Also, the first evenig we did laundry it was very dark outside at the entrance to the laundry. After speaking to the front desk, we realized that the motion detector light was turned off. This is not a safe situation for a single female, not acceptable at all!!! In closing, there is no reason that your guests have to go outside in the rainy, stormy weather to access the laundry. I believe with a little effort and time on your part, you could make this a much better situation for everyone. Obviously, this covid-19 situation is not going to go away soon, so the laundry situation needs to be rethinked. I can not stress more how unacceptable it is to make your guests go outside in the rain to access the laundry, especially with the lights turned off. THIS IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE SITUATION!!!!! Also, the management needs to supply disinfectant wipes in the laundry room so that each guest can wipe down the machine handles, etc between uses. The disinfecting wipes were removed during our stay for some reason. This really is not acceptable either.
