We arrived too late for the shuttle so took a taxi which was fine. The room had a clogged sink that would not drain, we could not get the heater to work froze through the first night. They then assigned us a second room. We could not get in, went back to the desk and were told that door has a problem and you need to lift the handle to open, not push down like the other doors (no one told us that at first requiring another trip to the desk). I did like the proximity to the airport and the check out worker when we left was very helpful because we could not use the internet in the room as it would not get us on line, nor the internet in the hallway, so she let me use the desk internet that worked fine.

Nice hotel, good location, good service, very clean I recommend this place, good customer service.

No sound insulation. A bunch of tourists were in and out of each others rooms and you could hear everything

Excelente service, shuttle service eficient, good selection at breakfast. I was very pleased staying there.

Small room, but fit our needs for one night. Close to airport, free shuttle (runs until 12:15am), easy check-in, and pretty clean. Only complaints: stocked one towel and 3 pillows for two of us and they were drilling into the wall next door before 8:30am.

Sub-standard, Room is very small, and was not very clean.

Just some things I'm not used to in a hotel. For example; the floor is not carpeted, seems like a vinyl tile of some kind. A Kuerig coffee machine instead of the old style coffee pot thing. A big, flat screen, smart tv was in the room. The bed was old but comfortable. All-in-all it was a good place to stay over night and I would do it again.

Really good hotel for the money...clean, updated enough, basic/simple and adequate.

Everything pleasant and smooth. Lucky to enjoy the complimentary wine and cheese the night I stayed; that was pleasant too. Online photos strategically shot to give the appearance of spanking new furnishings and facilities, but the reality is it's all just higher-tier refurbishing on what was clearly a lower-tier hotel.

booked a room with king bed. It was not available upon arrival so settled for the queen. Rooms are outdated.

Nice Hotel for the price. Rooms are very small and over all have certain smell. It’s a decent Hotel for the prices around the area. Not the best but for the price you can’t be too picky.

When I called for the hotel shuttle, I was told the driver had just left and was put on hold for 12 minutes before being told simply that a driver would come. Check-in was fine. The room itself was musty and loud with the street noise and with the steps and voices outside the hallway echoing and shaking the room. The ceiling had some stains. The bed was comfortable, and the tv and hair dryer were nice. I just felt I had overpaid by a great deal. I was disappointed by the service and quality of the room.

Looked like I was staying in a motel 6 so not worth it for the price I payed

Fine, comfortable and decently located, but a bit overpriced.

Overpriced poor value and bed bugs. Breakfast is limited and so small you won’t eat due to too many people. Bed bugs bit foot first night. Management more concerned about getting 13 per night for parking than anything else

Close to airport and convenient. Free breakfast was good. But requires parking fees

Not what I expected. I wish I had spent $20 more for a branded hotel. Clean and safe... but near three huge electric towers.

Bathtub had cracks in it, and the towels had hair from previous guests. No phone charger plug in next to bed. This hotel is simply not worth the price.
