Negative Reviews

Value is debatable

Some guests say the hotel isn't up to par with other 4-star hotels they've stayed in previously. Room rates, parking rates and restaurant prices surprised a few guests and made them feel that for the price, the hotel didn't live up to their expectations.

Can be noisy

Guests say the rooms aren't totally soundproofed, so noise from neighboring rooms can be heard quite easily. You might be able to hear sounds of people talking as well as room doors opening and shutting.

A few updates are needed

Stained carpeting and dated décor have been noted at this hotel. For the most part, the hotel is in good condition, but some renovations are needed to address slight signs of wear and tear.
