Negative Reviews

Needs updates

The hotel may not have the newest of the best of everything. Guests found the linens and mattresses to be quite old and sometimes used looking. They also found that the Wi-Fi was not very good, as it had a weak signal.

Smelly and stuffy

You might want to stay here when it is cooler. Guests stated that the hotel had no air conditioning, making it quite warm and stuffy. They also stated that it often had a musty smell due to very little air circulation.

Just plain small

Do not expect a lot of room to move around. Guests were a bit disappointed that the rooms and the showers were so small. They also stated that the walls were quite thin, so they could everything going on outside the room.
