The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints among them about noise transfer and the lack of an elevator.

A few guests had complaints regarding noise transfer in the hotel. They described being able to hear other guests' footsteps and voices next door and from above, as well as being able to hear the highway's traffic noise. Most reviewers, however, described being surprised at how quiet their rooms were given their proximity to the highway. A few guests recommended that lodgers ask for quiet rooms away from traffic to ensure a quieter stay.

A couple of reviewers expressed disappointment at the lack of elevator within the hotel and complained about having to walk up the stairs with luggage to the second floor.

Although most reviews about the free breakfast were positive, a few guests had complaints that the breakfast room was too small to accommodate all the guests.
