Negative Reviews

Needs update

Guests booking through travel websites are given secondary treatment and not allowed to choose a preferred room. The hotel needs a general update as it appears dated. The carpets are dirty and unappealing.

Overpriced hotel

Many of the amenities like Wi-Fi in the rooms, parking and breakfast are charged. The pool area is too small for the size of the hotel. Maintenance and cleanliness does not meet the standards for the price charged by the hotel.

Room issues

The rooms are old with the walls showing a lot of repairs and repaint. The doors are heavy and old and make noise while being opened and closed. Toilet dispensers are hung off on the bathroom walls and sinks are cracked.
