The Bad
As mentioned above, positive reviews for this property outnumbered negative reviews. However, there were a couple of common concerns.

A few reviewers thought that the in-suite decor and furnishings were dated. Guests described worn carpeting, chipped drywall, bed comforters with holes, and furniture that appeared to be "cheap".

A few guests mentioned that the front desk had limited hours of operation and was typically closed around 6:00pm. These reviewers complained that they were inconvenienced when they arrived for check-in after the front desk had closed.

A couple of guests complained about smelling cigarette smoke in their suites. A couple of other reviewers complained that this property did not have air conditioning.
