Some rooms lack windows

The absence of windows in some of the rooms at this property proves disappointing to those guests who are allocated these quarters. The rooms can feel particularly cramped, reviews indicate.

Cleanliness and maintenance could be improved

Guests aren’t overly impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, with reports of bugs, smoky smells, and bedding that is less than fresh quite common. Similarly, maintenance doesn’t seem to be a top priority. Guests complain of leaky plumbing and blown lightbulbs.

Parking can prove problematic

This hotel doesn’t offer private parking facilities and guests must compete with others to secure a public parking space. As these appear to be few in number, guests can find parking here to be a bit of a challenge at times.
