Negative Reviews

Bugs Everywhere

Guests report that they were upset and unsatisfied with the cleanliness condition of the hotel, noting that there are bugs in the bathroom and around the pool.

A Big Disappointment

Guests remark that the hotel was a major disappointment, not as clean or as well appointed as anticipated. Guest commented that the staff was trying hard to work with the limitations of the facility, but could do nothing about the strong cigarette smell that permeates throughout the building.

Beds Could Be Better

Some guests complained that the beds could be better, noting that the mattress are very firm and uncomfortable and detract from rather than encourage a sound night's sleep.Other guests noted that the hotel is a bit noisy at night and the soundproofing could be better as it was hard to rest with noise from the street traffic and people shouting in the hallway.
