The Bad

They reported poor Wi-Fi connectivity, dated decor, worn furniture, fixtures, appliances and carpets, broken heating/air conditioning, some cleaning issues and noise transfer from guests in adjacent rooms.

The hotel's free breakfast was a disappointment for a few lodgers, who described it as unhealthy, limited and not replenished when items ran out.
