Your stay and safety are very important to rooms2stay. In light of the outbreak of the coronavirus, rooms2stay wants to assure you all the necessary precautionary measures are being taken to ensure a safe experience for our guests. To that end Cat, the hostess, is upping her game on cleaning protocols, disinfecting much as possible to keep rooms2stay “cootie” free as possible. This will also involve guest participation. The first request is to wash your hands, with soap, before you enter your room when you check-in and then again on return from your coming and goings. It's requested that reservations are done at the minimum 24 hours before stay to do the cleaning protocols.

Not only will common areas such as stair rails, doorknobs, light switches, surfaces, but laundry will also be sanitized (comforters) as well as the standard towel and sheet change. God willing there will be toilet paper. A new option is the availability of commercially prepackaged foods for breakfast choice. As much as she enjoys concocted special family-style breakfasts (which she will still do, one breakfast per guest, if so desired at no additional charge) and table settings she will do all with plastic gloves on. She is a food handling permit carrier! Cat’s preference is to usually not use bamboo or paper products when serving foodstuff. She is going "green" with future use of disposable and biodegradable plates, flatware, paper travel mugs, etc. use. She’s looking forward to the creative challenge of integrating all without losing the charm of a cozy quaint BnB and turning it into a sterilized hotel experience. Guest breakfast is served between 7 to 9:30 a.m.
