The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints among them, which included the price and noise disturbances.

A few guests found this hotel to cost more than they felt it was worth. The prices these guests paid for a standard room were between $165-$175 per night, which they felt should have been closer to $125 per night. It was mentioned that because there weren't other hotels in the area, they had no choice but to stay at this hotel.

A couple of lodgers complained about noise during their stay. They found the air-conditioning units to be too loud and also experienced noise transfer from their neighbours in adjacent rooms. It should be mentioned, however, that most guests described the hotel and their stay as quiet.
