Negative Reviews

In need of a renovation

Whether it’s worn or broken furniture in the rooms or drab interior hallways, some guests have noted that the older, dingier elements within the hotel have detracted from the overall magic of their stay. Nonetheless, experiencing life on the coast, with the salty ocean breeze blowing in through your window, may just wash away any negative impact from the decor.

Wi-Fi is not available en-suite

If you’re in need of constant connectivity, you won’t have access to free Wi-Fi in your room However, guests can meander down to the coffee shop, relax in the lobby or have a drink in the lounge and surf in style.

A few gripes that won’t ruin your visit

Most visitors to The Great Western have found it to be an enjoyable place to stay, but there have been some minor problems that added up to a less-than-perfect stay Musty smells in the hallway, hard pillows, soft beds, inadequate soundproofing in rooms and the walk from the parking lot are among the smaller concerns.
