Dining options were scarce

It disappointed several visitors that there were few restaurants located nearby. Those looking for places to eat reportedly faced a short drive to reach dining options and other amenities.

Occasional criticism of flaws in some rooms

It also disappointed some reviewers that there were no toiletries or coffee-makers provided in the rooms.
