Aging Gracefully

Though the property is well-kept, several guests thought renovations are necessary as some guest rooms, bathrooms, and various hotel facilities have begun to show their age. The decor is dated and the rooms need cosmetic touch ups. Guests also thought the fitness room and the pool area could use an update.


Minor Noise

Though most guests didn't have a complaint, some did mention that rooms near the elevator can be noisy and the air conditioned can be too loud to sleep with. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to bring a pair of earplugs as a precaution, and request a quiet room ahead of time.


Keeping Clean

Housekeeping is not always consistent and several guests reported their rooms not being vry clean at check in and not well maintained during their stay. Most guest had no complains, however.
