Fantastic setting and location

Negative Reviews

Some updates would be appreciated.

Though most visitors have seemed to enjoy the retro look of the hotel, a few people mentioned that some updates wouldn't hurt. Fixtures and furnishings have been said to be a little dated and worn out.

More bang for the buck would be nice.

Several guests have said that given the cost they paid for a night's stay, they felt a continental breakfast and more amenities should be included in the price.

A little noise control needed.

There have been limited complaints about walls being too thin, enabling visitors to hear other guests. A few people also mentioned air conditioners were too noisy.
