The Good
Guest reviews used for this analysis showed a positive response to the hotel's staff and location.

Several guests were pleased with the level of customer service they received at this hotel. They staff were characterized as helpful, friendly and polite, and provided a quick check-in service.

The hotel's location was praised by some reviewers. It was described as right off the highway, easy to find, and next door to a gas station. It was also mentioned some long-term travellers that this was a decent place to stay when travelling by car across Canada.

The Bad
Negative reviews found for this analysis mentioned the hotel's rooms, value, and free breakfast.

While most reviewers describe their rooms as clean and well-equipped with strong wireless signals, several guests were disappointed with other aspects of their rooms. These lodgers reported old and dated decor, stained towels, broken and inefficient air conditioning units, and broken locks. 

Those staying in pet-friendly rooms found them to be small and malodorous, made worse by the fact that the windows did not open.

The hotel's value was a source of complaint by many guests. They reported the rates as being too expensive, overpriced, and "not worth the cost". The hotel's lack of fitness room and pool were also cited as factors contributing to the hotel's lack of value. It should also be noted that although the hotel's website advertises their restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner, it is only open for breakfast.

Some guests were disappointed with the hotel's free breakfast. They described it as lacking variety and hot items, and felt it should be improved in order to make patrons' stays more worthwhile.
