The Bad
Most of the reviews used for this analysis were positive, but guests did have a few complaints in common, most notably about expensive room rates and odours in rooms and common areas.

A few guests felt that the rooms were overpriced. They thought that the price they paid would have been more appropriate for a hotel with more on-site amenities. 

A number of guests complained about strong odours of cigarette smoke lingering in smoking areas and, according to some reviewers, in non-smoking areas as well.

Some guests suggested that the decor was aging and in need of updates. They mentioned bedding with cigarette holes, peeling wallpaper and older furniture.

A few guests were bothered by noise from other guests and from slamming doors in the hallways.
