Some full time residents

Numerous guests weren't happy about the hotel being full of permanent residents. These individuals would often make strange noises and guests were frightened of them. In addition, multiple guests smelled smoke coming from these rooms.

Very loud in the rooms

There have been complaints about the lack of soundproofing at this property. Guests could hear noise from the hallways, neighbouring rooms, and outside throughout their stays, making it quite diffiuclt to sleep at times.

Unsatisfactory bathroom situation
