The Good
While the bulk of reviews used for this analysis were critical, guests did like a few things about this hotel, most notably its location and its price point.

Guests liked this hotel's proximity to restaurants (a wide selection of restaurants were within a 5-minute walk) and to shops.

A number of guests were pleased with the room rate (which a number described as "budget"), and felt that it was reasonably priced.

A number of guests described their rooms as clean and basic, while some said that rooms were spacious and able to accommodate their needs. 

The Bad
Most of the reviews used for this analysis were negative and there were numerous and varied complaints. Surfacing most frequently were comments about noise disturbances and about odours of cigarette smoke.

There were a number of complaints from guests who were disturbed by noise from guests in adjacent rooms and in the hallways. They could hear things clearly through the walls, and suggested that more needed to be done to soundproof them. Guests also complained of street noise.

There were lingering odours of cigarette smoke that were fairly strong, both in common areas and in the rooms, according to guests. 

A few guests complained about the lack of selection offered at the complimentary continental breakfast. 

Decor was aging, according to guests, who suggested that updates to furniture and to carpets were in order.

Several guests complained about slow and spotty Wi-Fi connections. 

There were some peripheral comments from guests who  said that the beds and the pillows were uncomfortably firm, and who had challenges working the air conditioning units.

"Might be helpful to mention to customers of the $50 deposit prior to check in. May be inconvenient for some. In addition, the continental breakfast was a bit lacking. Staff assured me that it would be better the next day,however, my stay was just for that night. Otherwise, i think i received what i paid for. thank you to the friendly staff."
