Negative Reviews

Road Noise

Though most guests had no problems, some guests were bothered by some rooms' poor soundproofing. The rooms next to the roads can get some traffic noise. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to ask for a quieter room, and bring earplugs with you as a precaution.

Dated Decor

Even though the rooms are tidy, several guests thought renovations are necessary as some rooms have begun to show their age. The decor is dated, the furniture looks old and the carpets appear worn.  Guests also noted that the rooms could be better maintained.

Vanity Space

Several guests were bothered that the bathrooms have limited counter space to lay out your toiletries.
