They are cheap and usually made of cheap parts - shortly lots of things will not work or there will be low water pressure or???
If they were going to build a cheap hotel, you would think they would have the common decency to at least make it inconspicuous!

Yep. Complaining that this is bad is like complaining that a Motel 6 on a highway is bad. This hotel will be for people who want to be in the Bayers Lake area and have easy car access, like those visiting the Community Outpatient Centre being built. It will not compete with tourists who want to spend money to be in a scenic and more interesting part of town. Because it is tall it will have nicer views and it uses less land.

How about: If they were going to build a cheap hotel, you would think they would have the common decency to at least not pretend it was going to look like this:

This would have been the perfect building for a crane to have toppled over on. With any luck it would have taken the building with it.

Yeah, I agree, but in reality it's probably only people on this site who are upset by this because they were hoping for an iconic skyscraper tower to be built in Bayer's lake (probably unrealistically).

Most other folks likely looked at the sign and thought "Oh, they are building a hotel here. Neat."...
