The Bad
Although the majority of reviews used for this analysis were positive, some negative comments focused on the price point.

Some guests felt that the hotel was a bit overpriced for being an older, albeit well-maintained hotel. For some, thin walls and limited hotel amenities qualified this hotel as basic. Guests thought it was decent but nothing special and that the price seemed to reflect a higher-caliber hotel.
