The Bad

Several reviewers thought that the neighbourhood immediately surrounding the hotel appeared unsafe, while a few guests had security concerns about the property itself. A couple of guests said that long-term residents of the hotel appeared to be engaged in suspicious activity and a couple of other reviewers noted that the police were called to the hotel during their stay. One guest said that this property was "not a good hotel unless you like the red-light nightlife."

A few guests found the hotel in need of upgrades. Reviewers described torn sheets, burns in the furniture, dated decor, inadequate hot water supply, dirty carpets, unpleasant odours, and televisions that were not in working order. One guest stated that the "bathroom floor was too dirty to take your shoes off".

The customer service at this hotel also received complaints. One guest said that he was charged for a room despite cancelling his reservation the day before, while another guest said that his request to switch to a non-smoking room was denied. Other reviewers described the front desk staff as rude and disinterested.
