This motel is in a good location in the sense that it has some decent restaurants and supermarket nearby, while at the same time being airport-accessible. The room itself was totally fine for me and my brother and had everything we needed (beds, big bathroom, and small kitchenette that was sufficient for what we needed it for).
However, I did have two concerns while we were staying at the 540 -- the first was that the woman who worked at the reception came off a bit rude. When we arrived, we came via airport shuttle (the man who drove that shuttle was absolutely wonderful and I want to give him credit for that here) and had to fly out again the following day, and so requested the shuttle for the next day. My brother asked quite nicely, but the response he got was, "I guess," which came off rather rude to me.
My second concern was that we paid for unlimited wifi, but were unable to connect to it in our room. When I asked about this, I was told to walk around the room to look for a better signal. What I ended up having to do was walk out of the room and down the hall to pick up a decent signal. Now, I would've endured this had the wifi been free, but since we paid, that was pretty ridiculous.
Overall, if I absolutely had to, I would stay again, as the place is cheap and in a decent area, but I'd be a little more cautious the second time around.
