Econo NOOOO

Returned back to our room after a family wedding. After changing out of tux and gown, my husband and I got ready for bed. Only hot water coming out of faucet in bathroom-awful for brushing teeth! Crawled into bed and found the remote doesn't work. Called desk only to be told to come down and get it myself because staff couldn't leave the desk and was the only one there. Upon checkout saw a sign that could be placed out in absence saying "the front desk employee is currently helping a guest. Please dial 101 for service."

Good Comfort, Good Price

The friendly staff at this affordable hotel might lead you to believe that they have to be that way to make up for beds like rocks, and pilows like sheets... but, this is not the case. The beds are more than comfortable and the pillows are more something found in higher-priced accommodations. Just a couple low points hardly worth mentioning but the only reason i can't justify 5 stars: lack of vending choices, lines on tv screen, and some remodeling noise before 10 am. Overall though, what a great find!

Is that water dripping on my head?

A poor to middling experience. The staff was pleasant enough, but not aware they're in the hospitality industry. Water leaked into the shower from the upstairs shower and the whole ceiling desperately needed TLC. The clerk didn't seemed surprised or apologetic when I mentioned the problem. The doughnuts in the Continental Breakfast were past stale. On the up side the room was large and the hotel is close to the airport.

Avoid this motel.

There are bunch of other motels you can choose in its area. So choose others This one has by far the worst facilities and staffs in my lifetime experience. Rattles floors and staffs' attitude made me exhausted as I arrive.

Amazing bargain!

A clean, inexpensive ($50/night) motel near the airport. The only improvement would be if the continental breakfast had fresh fruit in addition to juice. Friendly staff, comfy beds, everything was clean. Highly recommended. We used the parking during our trip, and it was very convenient, at the same price as the super saver, $5 per night.

Perfect for night before flight

Motel was clean and friendly. Very economical for a place to stay before an early am flight. Perfect for stay, parking available at motel while we were gone, shuttle to and from airport was very convenient. Continental breakfast was just right for a light snack before a flight.
