The Good
Guests typically enjoyed their stay at this hotel.

The breakfast was generally appreciated as adding value to the stay.

Many seemed to appreciate the value of the hotel, although there were a few that felt the mid-range rates they paid were a little much.

The Bad
There were some nitpicks scattered throughout the reviews.

A few felt the hotel was getting tired and was due for some updates and occasionally guests mentioned that their bed was uncomfortably soft.

Some had noise disturbances from unruly guests, but this was not commonly occurring. Rooms near to the elevator and stairs were also mentioned as noisy and occasionally guests could hear footsteps from above.

A few guests mentioned that the immediate area was industrial and seemed a little run down.

Although guests often found the hotel well priced and good value, occasionally guests who paid in the mid-range area felt it was too much.
