Negative Reviews

Service Could Be Faster

Guests report that the service staff is helpful and accommodating but that the service is rather laid back and slow, noting that additional staff in the dining room during busy times would alleviate the problem.

Poor Wi-Fi

Some guest commented that they appreciated the free Wi-Fi but that it did not work in all public areas and that the signal in their rooms was sketchy and not dependable for business needs.

More Variety Needed

Some guests have noted that the food is fresh and tasty, but noted that the same dishes were prepared each day and that they would appreciate more variety in the breakfast entrees offered.
