Less than happy

This hotel had some very negative reviews, but I selected it for it's location and the pictures looked nice. The reception and registration was smooth, the receptionist very pleasant The room looked clean and the beds were comfortable. Problem started with the shower, the free products were in the shower stall, not on the counter. When I went to use them, they had already been used, and were empty or nearly empty. We went to the pool at 8 pm and there were no pool towels available, had to go back to the room get room towels to use at the pool. When we returned the next day, our room had not been cleaned, garbage overflowing and no clean towels. To get a refrigerator was an extra $20/day. Will not stay here again.

Quick Place to Crash

My wife and I needed a place to sleep for a few hours after attending an awards gala downtown. All of the downtown hotels were over $200 a night, so even though it was a bit less convenient to drive out towards the airport afterwards, it saved us $100 (which was worth it). We arrived late (1:00 AM), slept in until 10:00 the next morning - showered and quietly slipped out. Everything was clean, bed was comfortable, parking was free, so we considered it a win. If you were staying here because of proximity to the airport, you'd probably be even more appreciative.

Good value

Arrived late on a Friday night for a wedding the next day. Staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and gave some great recommendations for activities I wanted to do while in town. Room was fine. Not the nicest as far as decor I've stayed in, but overall, it was fine for the price. It was rather clean, but it had a bit of a dated / used feel. Only other complaint is the A/C only kicks on once you come back... it maintains a very high 78-79F while you are away, so, on the 6th floor, it takes a while to get back to a more comfortable temperature. Overall, still worth the great price we got on the hotel, so not disappointed.

Very nice and close to the airport

The hotel was very busy but had ample staff to assist everyone checking in. It was located close to the airport with 24hr shuttle service. Very clean and nice!

Don't stay here with a pet

I booked a stay on an online site. When checking in, after a 12 hour drive, I was told there was a $150 non refundable fee for cleaning the room after my stay with my dog. The pet cleaning fee is NOWHERE on the booking page. It's extremely upsetting that I was stuck paying $150 fee for my small dog. I don't have an extra $150 budgeted for this one night.
