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

While most reviewers reported a quiet stay at this hotel, some guests complained of noise disturbances. These guests reported traffic noise from the highway throughout the night in rooms located close to the road, and also mentioned loud in-room air conditioning units.

Another minor complaint was that the hotel uses plastic cutlery and styrofoam plates for the complimentary breakfast, which a few reviewers didn't find very eco-friendly.
