The Bad
Negative experiences at this hotel were difficult to find. Of the rare guest complaints, there were only a few aspects that were criticized: the slightly outdated decor, the older style bathroom plumbing, and lack of soundproofing in the room.

A few guests felt the hotel furnishings were out-dated. One reviewer mentioned that the hotel was beginning to show it's age and could use some renovations (particularly the bathroom plumbing).

Another guest mentioned having wireless Internet problems on the 4th floor and said she was only able to connect to the hotel network in the lobby.

A few reviewers had problems with noise in the room. Some guests complained about hearing sounds from adjoining rooms while other guests had concerns about traffic noise from the nearby street. However, there was little mention of any sound disturbances from airplane traffic despite the hotel being so close to the airport. 

Several guests complained that on-site parking was not free.
