Great Location Near Airport

Great if you want to be near the airport. I did not like the smell of the room and it needs to be updated. Old finishes. Other than that the place is good for the location and amenities.

rooms need updating.....

A hotel with musty smelly hallways and musty rooms. The rooms are 2 star or below. The Staff is 4 star - very professional and prompt, but even they cannot make a turnip smell like a rose. Also no one likes housekeeping going through their luggage. While I was out I purposely left my luggage on the luggage rack and knew exactly the placement of items in luggage, shirt i left on top was put back sideways and every noteworthy item had been examined and put back wrong. Luckily all my valuable items to be stolen were with me.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Plenty of good local resturants all within distance. Hotel resturant is above aveage and service was good too. But for the rate I paid per night I should have had breakfast included.
