The Bad
The vast number of reviews used for this analysis were positive and there were no common themes among the reviews sourced, but a small number of isolated negative comments.

One guest said that there were some inconsiderate guests slamming doors and that the noise was disturbing. Another guest advised to pick a room away from the highway as it would be quieter. One guest was disturbed by a AC unit fan that was noisy. Another said the Wi-Fi could be faster.

One guest said there were not many restaurant choices close by, but there were a few that felt the selection of nearby restaurants was good.

While a few commented on comfy beds and pillows, one guest found his bed a bit too firm and the pillows a bit too hard.
