Negative Reviews

Old and dirty rooms

The rooms are old and dirty. Everything is mismatched giving the impression that the rooms have been remodeled several times over the years. The plastering and the painting of the room are shabby. The carpets are torn, smelly and terribly dirty.

Bathroom fixtures shaky

The bathrooms need renovation. The fixtures are shaky and the bath tub moves when a guest stands in it. Some tubs are cracked. Vents in the bathroom do not work. The towels provided are old and have holes in them.

Breakfast served early and limited items

The breakfast is served very early and guests coming in late are likely to miss it completely. The items served are rather limited too.
