The Bad
Some guests found the hotel a little old, in need of renovations and a little expensive for what it offered.

Although many guests enjoyed their rooms, some guests found them somewhat dated with a stale or musty odour.

Some felt the building was well maintained, but occasionally guests found it older, cited minor repairs needed and said the carpets were dirty.

Several guests thought the hotel was overpriced. A few reviewers spoke of high restaurant prices, but several others thought the room rates were too high based upon the dated condition of the rooms and the somewhat isolated location of the hotel which was not "walking distance to anything".

A few guests found the hotel difficult to locate due to poor signage on the highway.
