Average Room

Pros: Friendly staff. Sweet rolls and cereal for continental breakfast. Clean room and sheets. Cons: Air conditioner would not keep room cool. It would run for a few minutes, then stop and not restart. Grout from tile work in bathroom was not cleaned up when it was installed. There were globs of mortar everywhere that gave an unclean apperance. Continental breakfast area too small to seat more than 6 people.

So so

Nothing to do near there. We didn't have a car. They do not have airport pickup until after 5p.m. Room was nice but a little noisy. Old food was left in microwave which stank. No swimming pool. Very boring. Four miles from airport. Had to take metro transit to get anywhere. A less expensive motel would have been better. No one seemed to speak English. Asked for king, got two double beds.

The shuttle only works until 10 p.m.

This was a nightmare - the shuttle only runs until 10.p.m. and no-one answered the phone. Also make sure that you have a map of the airport area with you as the taxi-driver said he knew where it was - he didn't, The taxi ride should have taken 8 mins and it took us 45 minutes and only after I told the taxi driver to stop as a gas station and ask. Our flight was already over 1 hour late and this took us till 2:00 a.m. to reach the hotel and up again at 6:00 a.m. Never again. It was not the hotel's fault.

Good for one night

Very friendly staff. Nice rooms, clean and modern. This is a good place to stay if you will be there for one night, waiting to catch a flight the following morning. It's far from the downtown area, and there are no restaurants around the hotel.
