The Bad
Complaints were definitely in the minority in recent reviews posted for this hotel.

Occasionally guests complained about the parking lot. Complaints included that it was not paved, had potholes, sometimes lacked enough spaces, was dimly lit especially for early morning departures and had unsavoury characters digging though garbage bins giving it an unsafe feel.

Guests who stayed in non-renovated (and pet-friendly) rooms remarked on their age, although they still found them clean and comfortable.

A couple of reviewers were disappointed to not have black-out blinds in their rooms as this allowed the bright sun in to early, disturbing their sleep.
