There was very little negative feedback.

Recent room complaints were: room had little floor space, the floor creaked, and bathroom and bathroom sink was a little small.

Occasionally a guest mentioned that on-site parking was limited (to 4 spots), but there is free street parking one street over.

Other comments found were: there are steep stairs to climb to access the front entrance.
