Negative Reviews

Atmosphere in and Around the Hotel is Very Loud

It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep at this hotel because there is a lot of noise. Besides normal sounds of traffic outside, the hotel seems to be a draw for weekend partiers. Some guests reported drunken patrons yelling, swearing and throwing bottles from windows. When staff is made aware of the situation, they turn a blind eye and ignore it.

Hotel and Guest Rooms in Need of Refurbishment

The guest rooms at Gallaghers are in need of some extra care. Guests have reported that the beds are very old and uncomfortable, the showers are so small that you can barely move, rooms are stuffy and smell like stale tobacco and alcohol, there are broken locks on some of the windows and doors and the décor is shabby.

Some Staff Members Lack Customer Service Skills

Guests have reported that they received a very cold welcome upon checking in and it seemed like front desk staff just wanted to push them along as quickly as possible. Some guests have also reported that when they brought up some issues they were having, staff either ignored them or refused to accommodate them in any way.
