Routine motel and it really does have 24 hour pickup and delivery to the terminals in only five minutes. (If being picked up, do not go the area marked "shuttles", but rather go to the main curbside.)
Internet access is expensive, but (according to their provider with whom I spoke) they didn't buy sufficient access to support their customers so that it effectively doesn't function during the evening. At 3:30 AM in the morning, it's acceptable, but even then only 512k at best, which is not acceptable to those who need to transfer files.
The dining facilities are too small for the demand. They recommend making a reservation, as often there is no room. The alternate is room service which isn't great, as the food is cool and soggy by the time it is delivered.
There are motels that must offer better service.
