The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple complaints among them regarding the lack of included amenities and the front desk staff.

A few patrons were disappointed with the lack of mini-fridge in some of the rooms, as well as the lack of free breakfast included in the price. These guests felt that for the price they paid, these amenities should have been included in the room rates.

Occasionally guests complained about certain front desk agents who were not that friendly.

Also, some guests found the inn a little difficult to find.
