Barely acceptable

There was a sign that said "If your room is not acceptable, tell us immediately and we will move you or give you a refund". I should have taken this more seriously. There are many other hotels in this area, choose one of them.

Could have been cleaner. For staying almost a week no clean sheets. Towels were very thin.

Pits

There was continual noise from the hallway, the room was dirty and poorly kept. The free breakfast was not available until 8:00 well after I had to leave at 7:00 and then it would have been cereal and coffee.

Excellent service, perfect for a short stay

This is by far the best value for the location! If you are flying-in, just call the front desk when you are ready to step out of the airport, and a shuttle will come pick you up within minutes! Breakfast is simple, yet enough to get you started. One thing to be aware of is that the hotel is within reasonable walking distance to restaurants, but sidewalks are not always present in this rather active traffic area. Buy you always have the option to have your food delivered.

price per night too high for amenities.

The staff was Very nice, friendly and willing to please. Almost like being at home. In spite of distance from where I needed to go, if I had my car I would stay again if I got a better rate. I would prefer a 3 or 4 star hotel for the price paid.

Staying night before flight out

The staff was very nice. We loved the availability of shuttle service to and from hotel and that we could leave our care there for free.
