Old, dated decor

Rooms not serviced

Guests have complained that their rooms weren't serviced, other than clean towels being provided, after they arrived. These guests would have preferred to have fresh linens and dishes available in their rooms each morning.

Poor Wi-Fi

Past guests have mentioned that they were unable to get a Wi-Fi signal in their rooms and instead had to head to the lobby when they wanted to use the internet.
