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

Some guests complained of noise transfer during their stay. They reported being able to hear college students yelling, slamming doors and partying in the hallways and common areas, which they found to be quite disruptive.

The rooms were a source of disappointment for some reviewers. They described old carpets, no Wi-Fi (although wired internet is available free of charge), and worn decor and fixtures. These guests stressed this is a college dormitory and not a hotel for those who were expecting hotel accommodations.
