Email Problems

January 23rd, 2015 by Jeff

For the last couple of weeks, it seems as if none of our confirmation emails has been delivered. This coincides with a mail server problem with our Internet Service Provider which is still unresolved. They assure us that the matter is being addressed, but they do not have any idea when it will be fixed.

If you have made a reservation with us and still have not received your email confirmation, please contact us at our toll free number 866-427-8374. We have a workaround that seems to be working.
