The Bad
According to a large number of guests reviews, this hotel was very much in need of some updating and renovations, both in the rooms and to some of the amenities. Guests also found the linens/pillows worn and said that several items in the hotel were broken.

Several guests noted the worn appearance of the hotel, both inside and out and some patrons used words like "old" or "tired" to describe the property. Specifically, some guests commented on the state of the carpets, the pillows and the televisions.

A few guests claimed they had poor sleep quality while staying at this hotel and they often attributed it to uncomfortable beds and noisy plumbing. A few guests were unhappy because several items they wanted to use were broken, like the vending/ice machines and the hot tub.

While many guests said that overall the property was clean this position was not entirely consistent as a few guests indicated that their rooms were dirty when they checked in. A couple mentioned problems with the hot water in the shower.
