Guests complaints for this property were numerous and they almost exclusively fell into two categories. Many guests disliked their room for various reasons while several patrons were highly critical of the hotel’s pool area.
Guests who expressed some sort of dissatisfaction with their rooms complained about several different problems. Mold in the bathroom, insufficient hot water, room dirtiness, and complaints about uncomfortable beds stood out among the varying complaints.
Guests also frequently complained about the hotel’s pool. Many guests said that the water was cloudy or dirty and that the pool area smelled badly. Those factors alone turned many people away from the area without going for a swim at all.
Those who actually went into the pool frequently said that the water was so cold as to deter any kind of prolonged enjoyment. The pool had a waterslide but the comments about the pool were convincingly one-sided and negative.
