The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints among them, which included noise transfer, the rooms, and the price.

Some guests experienced disruptive noise during their stay. They described hearing people running in the hallways, and children yelling in adjacent rooms. One reviewer also mentioned hearing a dog barking from inside the hotel.

Although most guests enjoyed their rooms, some reviewers felt the upkeep of the hotel could have been improved upon. They described issues with cleanliness, worn carpets, scrapes on the furniture and outdated TVs.

A few lodgers felt the price of their rooms was too high, especially in the summer months. They felt that although the hotel was satisfactory, there weren't a lot of options in the town of Drumheller, so they didn't have much choice but to pay the rates.
