The Good
Guests who liked this hotel typically found it located conveniently, liked the free breakfast and found the beds comfortable.

The hotel's location was praised by several reviewers. They found it to be close to restaurants, highway access, the hospital and the airport. A couple of guests mentioned, however, that the hotel is more suitable for those with a vehicle.

Several lodgers were pleased with the hotel's complimentary breakfast and described it as having a good variety of options. It was also reported that it was re-stocked when items ran out, and one guest stated, "The breakfast is more than adequate, with hard-boiled eggs, toaster waffles, toast, instant oatmeal, and fruits and cereals". It should be noted, however, that some guests found the breakfast area to have limited seating.

Several guests mentioned the comfort of their beds and the overall impression given by recent reviews found online (and used for this analysis) is that this is a decent hotel with comfortable beds and clean rooms.

The Bad
Guests who didn't like this hotel usually complained about the immediate industrial area surrounding the hotel, smoke odours found in the rooms, the hotel's need to update and the noise they encountered that disturbed a good night's rest.

While the majority of guests found the rooms to be clean, several reviewers had issues with their accommodations. They reported uncomfortable beds, cigarette smells in non-smoking rooms, dated decor, musty odours and worn/dirty carpets.

The hotel's lack of elevator was a problem for some guests. They found it difficult to climb the stairs with heavy luggage, and a few reviewers with mobility issues also commented on having to climb stairs to get to their rooms. It was recommended by these guests that they book rooms on the first floor.

Several guests were displeased with the front desk staff finding them unsatisfactory, but others said they were friendly and helpful.

Noisy rooms were a trouble for more than one guest, with various reasons, the nearby stairwell, other guests and a squeaky door were blamed.
