Negative Reviews

Parking presents occasional problems

A small number of guests had problems finding a space in the parking lot, often describing the problem as worse if you arrive at the hotel later on in the day. Several guests had to find alternative parking elsewhere.

Some complaints about the air-conditioning

Feedback about this hotel suggests that not everyone is all that impressed with the air-conditioning units. Some guests who complained simply found the units were not very efficient, but most just thought they were too noisy.

Infrequent issues
