The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints about the in-room heating and air conditioning units, the lack of breakfast offered and noise transfer.

Some guests had difficulty with their in-room climate control units. They described them as difficult to manage and inefficient, creating conditions that were too hot, too cold or too dry.

Although the majority of lodgers were pleased with the hotel's value, a few reviewers mentioned they would have liked the hotel to provide a free breakfast and felt the prices warranted it.

A few reviewers complained of noise disturbances during their stays, and reported traffic noise as well as noisy in-room air conditioning units.

Finally, although many reviewers were quite pleased with the hotel's location, a couple of reviewers pointed out that the nearest grocery store is about 45 minutes away on foot.
