Negative Reviews

Not many restaurants nearby

Past guests have found it difficult to find many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. This was a minor annoyance at night for these guests, since they had to drive to find something to eat, rather than being able to walk.

Loud air conditioning

There have been complaints about the air conditioning making a fair amount of noise at this property. This made it difficult for guests to sleep at night, particularly on hot nights when the air conditioner was forced to run for most of the night.

A little dated

Property guests have found the rooms to be a little dated and have stated that they could use an update, as this would make the rooms even more comfortable.
