While many of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple common complaints among them, which included the lack of elevator and the size of the breakfast room.

Some guests found the hotel's lack of elevator to be an inconvenience. These reviewers recounted having to carry heavy luggage up the stairs, and recommended that guests with mobility issues book rooms on the first floor.

Although many guests were pleased with the free breakfast, a few reviewers complained the breakfast area was too small for the amount of patrons.

"Close to it all"

"Comfortable, affordable rooms. Also close to downtown. Would have liked the queen size room we reserved instead of two double beds, but besides that we can't complain. We are smokers so it was nice to be able to smoke inside or outside of the patio doors if we wished. It is not a luxury hotel, but if you are looking for a comfortable room while you travel this is the place."

"Dreadful"

"BOOKED THE THE ROOM A MONTH AND A HALF "NON SMOKING". WHEN I ARRIVED THE CLERK SAYS SHE HAS A SMOKING ROOM FOR US AND EVERYTHING ELSE WAS BOOKED UP. HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN? WE WERE SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS WEEKEND > THE ROOM SMELT AWEFUL. IT WAS THE WORST ROOM I HAVE EVER STAYED IN. WE CHECKED EVERYWHERE THERE WASN'T A ROOM TO BE FOUND > THE FREBREEZE DID HELP A TINY < WHICH I HAD TO PURCHASE AFTER THE CLERK TOLD ME SHE NOTHING TO FRESHEN THE ROOM UP."
