Some signs of wear and tear about the place.

Hotel parking is limited and expensive.

Some guests are disappointed to learn that the hotel only has limited parking, and certainly not enough to go around. On top of this, parking fees are said to be on the expensive side.

Not all rooms equipped with air conditioning.

A number of guests have complained that not all rooms at The Hotel California offer air conditioning. Some are fitted with ceiling fans, which some guests find to be ineffectual, particularly during the hot summer months.
