Negative Reviews

Slow Wi-Fi at times.

Some guests said Wi-Fi was weak and sluggish during their stay.

Minor complaints about rooms and amenities.

There have been a few minor complaints about rooms, such as a shower being a little small or pillows too lumpy. One guest was disappointed the Jacuzzi was out of order during their stay, and felt they should have been informed prior to arrival.

Sometimes a little noisy.

There can be noise from vehicles coming from the streets, primarily during the early morning and late evening hours. A few guests have also complained about being able to hear guests in other rooms moving around, but overall, negative remarks about the property have been limited.
