Damp Smell

Some guests noticed a damp smell that lingered in the hallways and found this to be somewhat unpleasant though it did not overly negatively impact their stay.

Dim Lighting

The lighting in the hallways, and some rooms, was found to be too dim and guests would have appreciated either more natural light or brighter bulbs.

Indifferent Staff

A number of guests found the staff to be indifferent and not very engaging when it came to customer service however other guests found to be perfectly pleasant. The majority of guests would recommend staying at this hotel.
