The Bad
While many of the reviews used for this analysis were positive, there were a few common points among the guest complaints, including noise disturbance in the rooms and ageing decor.

A number of guests were disturbed by noise in their rooms, naming noisy, rattling A/C units as the culprit. 

Some guests felt that the decor was tired, and was in need of updating and/or renovations. There was specific mention of old furniture, walls, towels and carpets. One guest said that the hotel overall was "worn".

A few guests, particularly those staying in pet-friendly areas of the hotel, noted unpleasant odours in the rooms.

There were a few peripheral comments on difficulties with remote controls and with voicemail.
