Though most guests didn't have a complaint, some did mention that the nearby hospital can be a source of street traffic noise, and the older plumbing can be annoying as well. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to request a room in the back of the hotel, away from the street. As a precaution, bringing a pair of earplugs is always recommended.
There is no elevator onsite. If you have a lot of luggage or trouble with stairs, you may want to request a "Lobby Level" or lower floor room ahead of time. Keep in mind that there are no "Value Rooms" on the ground floor.
The parking lot can get full on busy days, and guests say some spaces are tight. Fortunately, the hotel will happily provide an alternative.
