The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints about the rooms and location.

Although the majority of guests were satisfied with their clean and quiet accommodations, a few lodgers had complaints about their rooms. They reported uncomfortable beds (too firm), as well as no-in room TVs or cooking utensils.

While several travellers were pleased with the hotel's proximity to shopping and highway access, a few reviewers had difficulty find the hotel, and reported poor signage. One guest noted, "The night time security duty guided me to the residence as I was a bit perplexed, making my way through the campus to the residence at night on my own. KEEP driving through the campus (veer left on the main road, driving until there is a secondary school in front of you, and turn right to the residenceā€¦it is not a gigantic campus)".
