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

While the majority of reviewers found their rooms to be clean and comfortable, some guests had issues with odours. They reported cigarette smells in most of the hotel, as well as an unidentified odour in their rooms. One guest also mentioned the water had a funny smell and taste, and recommended guests bring bottled water to the hotel to drink.

Noise disturbances were mentioned by a few guests. They complained of being able to hear neighbours in adjacent rooms, loud in-room air conditioning units, and traffic noise in highway-facing rooms.

The hotel's breakfast was a disappointment for some lodgers. They described it as basic, with no hot items or fruit, and mentioned the bar area where it was serviced smelled of cigarettes and beer.
