The Good
Guests had a number of good things to say about this hotel, much of it about good customer service and clean, comfortable accommodations.

Reviewers felt that staff were accommodating in meeting their requests. The front desk was mentioned specifically, and several guests felt that they went above and beyond to assist.

A number of guests reported that the rooms, the common areas and the property itself were all well maintained. Guests commented that rooms were sizable, conveniently configured and that there was a high level of detail given to the cleaning. 

Location was also a positive factor for a number of guests who felt that the hotel was easy to find, and that shops, restaurants and the airport were all conveniently nearby.

There were some additional comments from guests who enjoyed the quality and the selection offered at the buffet.

The Bad
While many of the reviews used for this analysis were favourable, guests did have some common complaints about a lack of parking and noisy A/C units.

Several guests commented on the inadequate size of the parking lot and on the limited availability of parking spaces. A few guests felt that the lot was difficult to access (located behind the hotel) and was dark. Some had to secure parking elsewhere.

A number of guests indicated that the A/C units were loud and rattling. One guest felt that they were so loud that she had to choose between being too warm or enduring the noise.

There were a few additional comments about thin bedding and others from guests who objected to paying a $5 fee to take the shuttle from the airport to the hotel.
