The Bad
While many of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple common complaints among them, which included noise transfer and the complimentary breakfast.

Some guests complained of noise disturbances during their stay. They reported being able to hear guests shouting in the parking lot, neighbours talking in adjacent rooms and hallways, and loud air conditioning units.

The complimentary breakfast was a source of disappointment for some reviewers. They found the selection of items to be lacking, and mentioned that hard boiled eggs were the only protein item available. It should be mentioned however, that several other reviewers were pleased with the breakfast selection.
