Negative Reviews

What's for breakfast again?

Guests say the hotel's complimentary breakfast did not have enough options. The breakfast has some fruit, cereal, bagels and a few other options, but visitors noted the spread felt incomplete.

Wi-Fi signal moves around

The in-room Wi-Fi at the hotel is reportedly unreliable as it can be hard to stay connected to the network for extended periods of time. You can head down to the lobby to use the internet for a more reliable signal if you feel so inclined.

Not in working order

There were quite a few areas of the rooms that didn't function properly according to guests who say the TVs were unreliable and the electric outlets were very hit and miss. Visitors also point out the hotel was old and this could have led to some of these problems.
