The Bad
Some complaints surfaced in the reviews found online recently.

A few guests were bothered by noise. These guests blamed barking dogs, the HVAC system and rowdy persons in the parking lot.

Some guests missed having a free breakfast included and several felt the additional price was too high (although others thought it was very reasonably priced).

Occasionally guests had difficulty adjusting the sleep number beds to their satisfaction and therefore found them uncomfortable.
