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

Although the majority of reviewers were pleased with their clean and well-equipped units, a few guests had complaints about their accommodations. They reported noise transfer from people outside late at night, noisy heating units and guests in adjacent rooms, as well as uncomfortable sofabeds, no air conditioning in some units and dated decor.

A few lodgers were disappointed with the property's value. They found the rates to be overpriced and expensive and felt parking should have been included as well as a free breakfast. (However, parking is free from spring through fall, as noted above.)
