The Bad
Guests did leave some complaints in the reviews.

Several reviewers found their rooms to be too small. These guests typically had a king bed that was squeezed into a room that was too small for it. These guests described cramped conditions in these rooms. One guest said they only had one chair and the second guest had to sit on the bed and described having to get out of the way for the other guest to pass by.

Occasionally guests complained of expensive room rates. These guests usually complained that the hotel was older, the bathrooms were a bit outdated, their rooms were small, or they had other issues such as noise disturbances.

Guests who complained of noise were few in number, but seemed upset about it. A couple of guests said the pool was noisy due to kids or sports teams enjoying the pool, another guest complained of a clanging noise that came through the bathroom fan from the roof loud enough to disturb their sleep, and yet another found their room that was near to the lobby, to transfer noise from guests in the lobby.
