Negative Reviews


Hotel Undergoing Renovations

This hotel is currently in the middle of renovations. The staff do their best to help you navigate this, but some guests are still assigned old rooms which can be very dark. Common areas in the hotel are filled with work tools. Some rooms are partially renovated and the hotel is still selling them to guests. Be prepared to check back for when renovations are complete.


Possible Noise Issues

Some guests report that noise from the nearby highway can be a bit loud and bothersome. You can also hear everything going on around you because of the thin walls. Normal speaking voices seem to be heard without a problem from the surrounding areas.


Low Ceiling Issues

Several guests say the ceilings in this hotel are strangely low. Anyone over 6'5" may have to do quite a bit of ducking to avoid hitting their head.
