It is ok ..

I wouldn't stay there again.. Not for the price i paid. I was also suposed to have had breakfast included, but the guy who checked us in - forgot to give us tickets, so next morning we were rushing and didn't have breakfast. Long walk to the room, kind of confusing. Super close to the airport. Room was ok.

Needs a refresh

This hotel was just okay. The staff at check in and the airport shuttle guy were all very friendly. The hotel itself had a musty smell in the hallway. The rooms were okay, the beds were comfortable, but the bathroom had wall paper hanging off the wall, trim boards that were swelling from water damage and peeling paint. The tvs were tube and didn't work properly. Overall, it was a value motel, and was okay since we didn't stay long.

Average, clean room but not the best.

The beds and bathroom were clean, I liked the bathroom soaps and the staff was wonderful. The hotel is a bit older, and the hallway leading to my room had a funky odor. The actual room was obviously re-vamped a bit, but the odor lingers. Granted, I have a very sensitive nose.

Internet doesn't work.

Unequipped Gym. Scray old elevators that make a lot of noise and you wonder if it is going to fall off. Not much T.V channels or options to buy movies etc., You can stay here when everything else is full and you definitely need any place to stay.

Great Stay

The hotel overall was excellent. The only thing I would change is that there was no microwaves or refrigerator in room. This place has an amazing view in the garden.
