    Before I booked the room..checked on shuttle to airport...was told no problem. There was a "BIG" problem. The shuttle didn't start until 7:30 am. Our plane left at 8 am...we had to pay a taxie $25.00 to get us to get us to the airport at 6:30. I would have never booked this hotel if I had known in advance it was so far away from the airport and the shuttle didn't run 24/7.

  • Group of friends

    I liked the location and the people of the hotel were very curtious.

    My only drawback was the restaurant in the hotel, we were given a coupon redeemable at the hotel, which we were delighted about as we only checked in around 7:30 in the evening after a full day of driving and shopping, so we were excited about having a restaurant within the hotel so that we did not have to go anywhere to eat. However when we entered the hotel, we found it impossible to eat there as you were overcome by this moldy smell which was a complete turn off so we went out instead.

    Large room size. Very comfy beds. Very quiet. Free hot breakfast.

    The mob scene in the breakfast room because of the free hot breakfast. (not the hotel's fault, obviously)

    Abigail - front desk employee, was extremely nice and helpful. The view from the room was nice and green.

    The fitness corner is small and not well equipped. Pool was fair.

    Staff did they best they could with a very worn property

    Old Tube-type TV, Mattress stuffing falling out, the drape around the bed frame was stained and torn and falling off. This is a property in desperate need of update. I would not return even though I travel to that area +/-12 times a year. I am concerned that if the rooms are that tired/unkempt, what am I bringing home on my clothes?

    The staff was wonderful, among whom was outstanding was ABIGAIL at the Front Desk. She was helpfu/discreetl and listened as I told her a few personal things I encountered with my friend. She's an absolute young woman to look into as a possible person for advancement. The breakfast bar was a delight! What a wonderful way to start the day. Thank you so much for everything.

  • 7.0

    The breakfast buffet was very good!

    Front desk clerks not very familiar with the area, so were not able to provide good directions.

  • 7.8

    The toilet was round and small. It felt like a potty trainer. Maybe an elongated toilet would make the bathroom a more pleasant experience. Not having a shower hose also makes it hard. The breakfast buffet was good but the coffee was horrible!! The ham served was also not that good.

  • 5.8

    Free wifi Friendly staff Location was great for my trip

    Mattress had a spring sticking out of it, quick fix - maintenance cut the spring shorter ?!?! Prank calls at 11pm from other guests Room was located across from elevator so it was noisy until 10/11pm each night
