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

Some guests had complaints about noise disturbances during their stay. They described hearing loud music from the pub later in the evening, highway noise and noise from the train tracks located nearby.

The hotel's decor and fixtures were considered in need of an upgrade by some reviewers. Complaints included thin towels and sheets and stained carpets.

It was mentioned by a couple of guests that the hotel's sign was difficult to see at night, as there was no spotlight on it, making the hotel a little hard to find.
