Negative Reviews


Wi-Fi only in Common Areas

Although the free Wi-Fi is widely advertised, it is never revealed until check-in that it's only available in the lobby and common areas - not in the rooms. Very archaic and inconvenient.Wi-Fi only in Common AreasAlthough the free Wi-Fi is widely advertised, it is never revealed until check-in that it's only available in the lobby and common areas - not in the rooms.

Tiny Parking Lot and Rooms

The free parking area can only fit a handful of cars, so get clarification on that in advance - especially if you have mobility issues or a larger vehicle. Rooms are tiny with minuscule bathrooms which are difficult to use if you aren't a pixie.


Needs a Refurb ASAP

This spot is a bit outdated, as well as in need of a good scrub in some areas. A fresh coat of paint would do wonders, as would some renovation on the steep and narrow staircases, improved sound-proofing above the bar, and some focused attention to the ancient plumbing and weak shower pressure. Overall, this locale has seen better days, but is still quite acceptable for most casual travellers.
