Negative Reviews

Ready for Renovations

While the rooms make for a comfortable stay, guests couldn’t help but notice that many rooms are in need of updates and renovations. The exterior of the hotel could also use a cosmetic face lift. Some additional things that could be updated is the dated bedding, and the squeaky and uncomfortable mattresses. In addition, guests also thought that the air conditioners are not the best, failing to cool the room properly on hot days.

Minor Traffic Noise

The hotel is located near two large and busy streets so some rooms can be noisy. If you’re a sensitive sleeper, you may want to bring along some earplugs.

Limited and Tight Parking

The onsite lot offers free parking but guests said that it’s small, and often crowded.
