The Bad
Reviews used for this analysis were limited, with some negative points focused on the price and the hotel's need for updates.

Many guests felt that the hotel was a bit overpriced for the amenities it provided. A few felt the hotel was decent but nothing special and even a bit outdated. Guests thought that the inclusion of a free breakfast and more on-site amenities like a hot tub would have helped to increase the value of the hotel.
