The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with praise going to the hotel's rooms, restaurant, and location.

Many lodgers enjoyed their rooms while staying at this hotel. They described them as modern, well-appointed, clean, comfortable and spacious, with a strong Wi-Fi signal.

The hotel's on-site restaurant was a source of numerous compliments by reviewers. It was mentioned several times by guests that the inexpensive breakfast special ($3.99) was an excellent value.

Several guests praised the hotel's location. They found it to be close to the highway, Bathurst Regional Airport (ZBF), and Tim Horton's (located in the same parking lot), as well as easy to find. It should be mentioned however, that it was reported there was nothing else within walking distance other than the Tim Horton's.

The staff were also mentioned positively by several patrons, who characterized them as friendly and helpful. It was reported the manager's door was always open and he was always available to guests.

The Bad
While many of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints among them, which included noise transfer and the decor of certain rooms.

A couple of guests complained of noise disturbances during their stay. They reported being able to hear an alarm clock through the wall from an adjacent room, as well as people partying late at night after a sports tournament. It should be noted however, that many other reviewers found their rooms to be quiet.

As of December 2012, the hotel has renovated many of its rooms. There are certain rooms however, which haven't had their furniture and fixtures upgraded. A few guests reported tired furniture and worn decor in these rooms.
