The Good

The Bad
Guests were not always fully satisfied with their stay.

Recent room complaints found were: difficulty regulating the temperature, uncomfortably hard beds, uncomfortable blanket, poor channel selection, analog TV, very dated room, no mini-fridge or microwave in the room, extra (unexpected) charge for a mini-fridge, bottled water an extra $4 charge, old smoke detector, and old electrical plugs caused plugs to fall out and did not make contact causing electronics not to charge overnight.

Some guests complained of very long waits for the airport shuttle very late at night.

Service was an issue for some. They complained of not getting their free breakfast vouchers or IHG welcome points, an icy driveway that was not salted, double billing, and rude front desk staff.

Noise was occasionally a disturbance from guests in neighbouring rooms and hallways, planes landing in the early morning or evening and vending machines.

Perkins was not very popular with guests overall. They complained of indifferent servers, small portions, extra charges for mayo, expensive prices and one guest found the beer selection lacking.

Other comments found were: a long walk to the elevator or front desk from guest room, no on-site pub or lounge, and sidewalks in the area are a little rough.
