If you prefer that we do not enter your room during your stay, please have your NO SERVICE sign on your door between the hours of 9am - 3pm. Otherwise, we will assume you would like us to freshen up. Abellona Staff will put an alert on the door while they are in your room. If there are any personal items on the bed, housekeeping will not make the bed.
Housekeeping is unavailable after 3pm. If you have chosen not to have us freshen your room, you are welcome to come to the office. We will do an exchange (only) on any linens and provide you with any other room amenities you would like. Our current office hours will be posted on the door.
