The Bad
As mentioned above, most of the reviews used for this analysis were negative and many guests would not return nor recommend this hotel. Negative feedback focused on the price, the overall state of the hotel and noise complaints.

Several reviewers felt the hotel was overpriced for the accommodations and amenities provided. In part, the hotel's age and rundown state contributed to lack of value offered by the hotel.

Some guests described the hotel as rundown and old. One guest was displeased to see stained and torn carpets in the hallway.

A few reviewers had noise complaints and felt the walls were too thin. One reviewer mentioned they "had the worst sleep ever" because they were disturbed by other guests' conversations.
