The vast majority of reviews used for this analysis were positive and guest criticisms were rare. There were a handful of negative comments that were isolated.

A few guests complained of loud, rattling air conditioning units. One guest said that her unit made so much noise that it disrupted her sleep. Some guests said that the air conditioning units were ineffective and did not cool the rooms very well.

A couple of guests suggested that linens (towels in particular) were aging and thin, and needed to be replaced.

A couple of guests were inconvenienced by a lack of an elevator at this two-storey hotel. Guests with mobility issues or lots of luggage found climbing the stairs a challenge.
