Negative Reviews

Some guests feel cramped.

Online advertisements and a spacious lobby hide the fact that the guestrooms at the Horton Grand Hotel are incredibly small. Many guests feel claustrophobic as well as slighted they paid so much money for closet-sized accommodations. open well into the night.

Various noise sources cause irritations.

Travelers of all kinds like this hotel for its location in the heart of the action, but the downside to this convenience is a lot of noise that guests have to deal with. Traffic and pedestrian noise is an issue, as is the loud music from the on-site bar that stays open well into the night.

Technology upgrades are needed in this old hotel.

As an older property the Horton Grand Hotel isn't well equipped to handle modern technology. The free Wi-Fi has a very poor signal, and limited outlets in the guestrooms will make it hard for guests to plug in all of their electronics.
