Prepare for Possible Smokey Smells

Guests cite that even non-smoking rooms at this hotel still smell of smoke. So for those with allergies or sensitivity to tobacco smoke, you may want to think twice before booking this hotel.

Walls Have Little Insulation

Guests mentioned that noise can be a factor here. The walls appear to be very thin so you can hear your neighbors. Some guests also commented that they can also hear noises outside from traffic. So it's advised you bring your earplugs when staying here.

Hotel Can Use Updates

Visitors mentioned that there are some places within the hotel could use a little work. In particular, they mentioned the guestrooms and bathrooms could use sprucing up.

They also cited the breakfast area is a bit too small so you get overcrowding on busy days and weekends.
