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 a restaurant on site.

A few guests mentioned having issues with noise transfer at the hotel. They described hearing voices from the room next door, footsteps from the floor above, and highway noise in rooms facing the highway.

Though the hotel serves a free continental breakfast, a few guests felt it would have been convenient if there was restaurant on site serving lunch and dinner. These guests mentioned there were not any restaurants within walking distance, but plenty of options within a 5-minute drive of the hotel.

As stated above, there were mixed reviews about the size of the rooms — some felt they were spacious, while others felt they were too small. A couple of guests also complained that the sink and mirror were outside of the bathroom instead of in the bathroom itself.

"The Best Western Plus In Fredericton"

"The room was excellent, very clean and comfortable. We had a great nights sleep. Customer service was great. Very friendly, polite and helpfull. My son loved the swimming pool and we all enjoyed the hot tub. There was only one elevator, making it a lengthy wait to go up or down and if they had a restaurant attached it could have been perfect."
