The Bad
While the majority of reviewers very much enjoyed their stay, a few common complaints were made about the rooms and parking. However, these complaints were minor, and did not ruin or define anyone's stay.

Although many lodgers enjoyed their rooms in general, several guests complained about noise transfer during their stay. Several reviewers noted noisy in-room air conditioning, while a few guests complained of noise transfer from guests in adjacent rooms.

A few patrons also mentioned a lack of privacy in the bathrooms due to a glass wall which faced onto the rooms, and although a shade can be drawn, it's not perfectly opaque and thus still offers a silhouette of those using the bathroom.

The hotel's parking was the source of a few complaints. A couple of guests found the $10 fee too expensive, while a couple of reviewers complained of a small lot and small spaces for larger vehicles.
