The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few complaints about the location.

Although numerous guests were pleased with the hotel's proximity to the airport, as well as with the easy drives from the hotel to local areas of interest. However, some reviewers were disappointed with the hotel's surrounding area. They found it to be industrial, with few food choices in the immediate area. The hotel's lack of an on-site restaurant or in-room mini-fridges compounded these lodgers' disappointment about the area. It was also mentioned by a couple of guests that the hotel was too far from the downtown area for their needs (within a 20-minute drive).
