Negative Reviews

Lots of Noise

Guests often became very frustrated by the high noise level at this property, and they recommended bringing earplugs.  According to their feedback, there are many fire doors within the establishment and they all slam much too loudly. Furthermore, there is a busy road close to the property, and guests could easily hear passing traffic because of the lack of soundproofing withing the building.

The Rooms Quickly Become Hot

Guests remarked that the rooms become very stuffy, to the point where it was hard to sleep. They said the accommodations are very poorly ventilated, and guests were not able to open windows and get some relief due to fire code regulations that prevented the windows from being opened.

The Beds Are Not Comfortable

Guests noticed that their beds were smaller than expected, and this was problematic if they were sleeping with a partner or had large builds themselves. Furthermore, guests said the mattresses were thin and lacked adequate support.
