The Bad
Guests that did not enjoy their stay at this hotel were fairly scattered on their opinions but the condition of the hotel, noise disturbances, and parking concerns stood out as areas that were frequently complained about.

Guests that did not like the condition of the hotel of the hotel felt that the property was either old or dated. Guests felt that the hotel was "tired" or "run down" and seemed to think that updates were in order.

Noise complaints at the hotel were relatively common and the nearby highways contributed to the problem. Freeway traffic bothered multiple guests and one guest called that traffic "heavy" and "nonstop."

Parking at the hotel was also a bother for some guests as the hotel appeared to have a "new 12 dollar parking charge." One guest, for example, called this fee "ridiculous" while another guest felt the fee was "out of line."

There were also some complaints about the overall value associated with the room rates although opinions were mixed from this perspective. Some guests felt that the hotel should have included a free breakfast for the rates they paid. 

Guests that complained about their rooms were not too many and they were outnumbered by the guests that expressed an approval over the accommodations. However, one complaint that surfaced on a few occasions had to do with room size as some guests felt as though their rooms were small.
