The Bad
While the majority of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of complaints among them about the hotel's visibility, prices, and lack of on-site restaurant.

A few guests had difficulty finding the hotel. They described a lack of signage and directions on Highway 21, and also described the hotel's entrance as hidden with poor signage.

The hotel's prices were a source of disappointment for a couple of reviewers. They found the rates to be "somewhat high", and "a little on the pricey side", and it was claimed by some guests that the rates stay the same in high and low seasons.
