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 and the rooms.

Some guests experienced issues with noise transfer during their stay. Because the rooms are accessed directly from outside guests described hearing noise from the parking lot. They also mentioned hearing noise from other guests in adjacent rooms and footsteps/stomping from the floor above.

The rooms were a source of a disappointment for a few reviewers. They cited old carpets, smoke odours in non-smoking rooms, and poor Wi-Fi signals as reasons they found their rooms unsatisfactory. It should be noted, however, that most reviews consulted for this analysis were pleased with their accommodations and described their rooms as clean and comfortable.
