Recent complaints regarding the rooms were: renovations seemed sloppily done, one guest's bathroom was partially redone, a slow shower drain, bathroom small and cramped, a stained carpet, beds too soft, toilet not flushing properly or making noise and unclean odour in a guest room. 

Recent complaints regarding the hotel in general were: halls and stairwells in need of new carpet and paint, smoke smell in hallways, no elevator, and no drive-up access.

Recent complaints regarding the restaurant were: a guest claimed he was refused service 40 minutes prior to closing and the restaurant is open limited hours.
