The Bad
As mentioned above, the reviews used for this analysis were mixed. Some reviewers felt the hotel was overpriced, were disappointed that the pool was closed for maintenance and thought the hotel could use updating.

Several guests said the hotel was overpriced largely because they felt the hotel was too old to justify the room rate. They felt that the hotel could use several updates (decor, furnishings and parking lot). Also, some guests felt the rate was too high considering they could not use all the amenities (like the pool and jetted tub).

Due to lack of notice regarding the pool closure, some guests were disappointed upon arrival to the hotel. The pool has been closed since September 2012, with no definite re-open date.

A couple guests thought the beds were uncomfortable and hard.
