We arrived quite late around 12.30am. Called up the motel by using the freephone near the exit and dialed #19. A friendly voice greeted and said he would pick us up within the next 10 minutes.
Fast forward; we were stunned with the room. Although it wasn't that BIG, but it was adequate enough to room all 4 of us. We booked a one bedroom unit. It was complete with a kitchenette. It's about the right size for 4 of us.
It was cozy and we sleep soundly later that night. If you are looking for a place to stay near the airport, I would highly recommend this motel. Fantastic!
