The Bad
Some guests offered their evaluation of the hotel.

Recent room complaints were: room was small and not very bright, water pressure was a little weak, room was a little cold and bathroom was dated.

Noise disturbance was mentioned on occasion from: an AC unit, guests in nearby rooms, the elevator and guests in the halls.

Other comments found were: hotel’s curb appeal was dated, smokers brought the smell of smoke into the lobby and elevator, and the hotel was in the west end and not the ‘city centre’ as it was named.
