The Bad
Guest complaints for this hotel were rare and without much concentration on any particular issue, as the few complaints that appeared online seemed to have been isolated occurrences. 

One guest said he encountered slow Wi-Fi, such as he could not accomplish his work without creating a hot spot through his cell phone, however, other guests praised the hotel without mentioning Wi-Fi at all. Another guest said his shower was not warm enough, although others did not complain about this and there was some mention of good shower pressure at the hotel.

A couple of guests mentioned having noisy AC units and one said his bathroom fan was noisy also.
