4/10 Fair

Transportation to and from the airport was reliable. Room was dirty and had bugs. Also the power went out several times.

Great Airport Hotel Option
Wonderful option for a hotel close to the airport. The room was very (!) large, nice amenities, clean and a friendly staff. There was some confusion at checkout about payment (they asked for my card when I had prepaid and seemed confused about why they didn’t know that) and they almost tried to get me to pay for a restaurant bill that was not mine - but they were apologetic for the confusion and did not press me for money I did not owe. I would absolutely recommend the location but encourage you to review the details when leaving.
