Cleanliness and maintenance issues

Some critics commented that the hotel appeared to have seen better days and would be improved by extra modernizing to address maintenance issues like outdated decor, aging carpets and tired-looking furniture. Cleanliness standards were generally said to be good, but some critics disagreed. They noted issues including stained linens and bathrooms that could have been better cleaned.

Patchy free Wi-Fi

Although reviewers appreciated the Wi-Fi access, there were occasional claims that the network was beset by sluggish speeds and patchy coverage at times.

Nuisance noises and smells

Stale smoke smells and musty odors were detected by some reviewers in certain areas of the building. Meanwhile, noise from connecting rooms and corridors was sometimes audible for light sleepers as was occasional traffic noise in certain rooms facing the freeway.
