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

Several guests complained about the hotel's parking. They offer only six spots total at $20 each per day, which some reviewers found to be expensive and also located in a dark alley. Other guests reported difficulty finding parking around the hotel when the hotel's spots were full.

Noise disruptions were mentioned by some lodgers. They reported being able to hear guests in adjacent and overhead rooms and from the hallway. A couple of reviewers reported traffic noise from street-facing rooms.

While the majority of reviewers described their rooms as clean, spacious and comfortable, some guests had complaints about their rooms. They reported old decor, peeling paint and dirty carpets.

The hotel's breakfast was also a source of disappointment for a few guests, who described it as limited, low budget, and in a tiny, dark breakfast room.
