Negative Reviews

An update is long overdue

Some guests felt that the property needs an overhaul. One room had a broken glass pane and a bathroom had a leak underneath the sink. Dim lights in the rooms and bathrooms was not appreciated. They felt that all rooms needed a fresh coat of paint. The tile flooring in the bathrooms also needed to be updated.

Fitness center needs modern equipment

Guests noted that the fitness center is small with very few equipment. They recommend the management to spend money on more exercise machines.
