The Bad
In the reviews used for this analysis, a few negative comments were common. These included the age of the hotel, noise in the hallways, a limited breakfast and the location of the hotel.

Several guests felt the hotel was looking worn-out. They mentioned that the carpets looked worn and stained.

The thin walls, according to some guests, attributed to hearing noises through the night which kept them awake.

The breakfast was said by a few guests to have a limited selection and the eating area was too small.

Some guests liked the location in proximity to the highway, however, a few guests felt the location left something to be desired. They said there were few amenities within walking distance, so a car or taxi was needed to get anywhere they wanted to go.

"noisy on weekend!"
"I didn't get any sleep Sat. night because drunk people out in hallway yelling and running. Told front desk next morning, but they said they didn't hear anything. Hard to beleive. The facility was under construction which I didn't know at the time of booking.They are upgrading their breakfast meal to include hot food, which will be nice when done. The bed was comfortable."

"Hello the only thing I would like to comment on is the price. The Motel is very nice and I do realize it was a holiday weekend a BUT $155.00 a night is just ridiclous. We could have stayed at the Travelodge next door for $99.00 and they have a pool and a restaurant. Which we will be doing next year. thankyou Marilyn from Norwich Ont."
