COVID-19 Cleaning Standards and Practices:

Based upon the Alberta Hotel and Lodging Association recommendations, we are making every effort to increase cleaning in all areas from guest rooms to common areas. We have also implemented efficient procedures that minimize contact between guests and our team while maintaining the guest service you expect from us. Please note the below standards which have been put into practice:

1.      Our Team:
The Acorn Motel team will follow strict guidelines including utilizing Personal Protective Equipment and frequent and stringent hand-washing protocols.
Employees are asked to stay home if unwell and follow procedures recommended by the Alberta Hotel and Lodging Association.

2.      Front Desk and Lobby:
Social distancing signs will be prominently posted across the motel.
Enhanced sanitization procedures will be in place at the front desk, lobby and across all guest touch points throughout the Motel with disinfecting taking place regularly.
Sanitizing stations or wipes will be available at the front desk.

3.      Housekeeping Service:
Thorough cleaning procedures will be executed in our guest rooms.
Guest rooms may not be entered for 24 to 48 hours after check-out wherever possible.
All linens and all touch points such as motel directories, telephones, faucets, door handles, light switches, thermostats, clocks, dressers, night stand handles, hangers etc. will be cleaned with industry approved cleaning products.
For our guest and our team's safety and protection, housekeeping service will be by request.
