The Bad
There was a little negative feedback.

Recent room complaints were: room needs better lighting and the smoke detector was beeping in the middle of the night.

Noise transferred from: AC/heating unit, mini-fridge, ice machine, the street, the delivery trucks in Costco’s parking lot and airplanes.

Other comments found were: the shuttle bus was full causing a long wait at the airport and not a lot of restaurants very close by.
