The Bad
While many of the reviews consulted for this analysis were very positive, there were a couple of common complaints among them which included noise transfer and sign visibility.

Several guests had complaints about noise transfer during their stay. The most common complaint was noise overhead, and a few reviewers suggested booking rooms on the top floor to avoid this issue.

A few reviewers found the hotel slightly difficult to identify from the road. They described the hotel's sign as being obstructed by trees.

One disabled guest reported the wheelchair accessible room was not truly so. He mentioned it would be very difficult to navigate the room without an able-bodied companion, due to the fixtures being too high and the bathtub being obstructed by the bathroom door.
