Negative Reviews

Breakfast is Very Minimal

There were numerous comments from guests who were upset to find out that the hotel's breakfast only consists of coffee, and donuts that had become stale. Many said they didn't even bother with the breakfast once they discovered what was offered.

Dated and Poorly Maintained Rooms

This property looks very old, and specifically like it has not been updated in several decades, guests said. Furthermore, they brought up instances of broken furnishings, badly worn towels and generally poor cleanliness, which made them get the impression that the management does not put a lot of effort into room upkeep.

The Car Park is Too Small

Guests said the parking lot is too tiny to adequately serve those who need to use it. Parking was especially tricky for guests with large vehicles.
