The Bad
Guests that did not like the hotel were unhappy with a few common features.

Parking at the hotel was not possible for guests that were motorists. The hotel did not provide this service at all and that left patrons searching the nearby area for parking at additional cost.

Guest opinions were mixed about the continental breakfast with some appreciating the free offer and what seemed like a larger contingent feeling that it was just too basic, with not enough variety.

The area surrounding the hotel was deemed sketchy by several guests who described prostitutes and panhandlers nearby, people talking outside their rooms in the wee hours and creating a noise disturbance.

In addition, some guests felt the hotel was somewhat dated and need some TLC.
