The hotel is neither luxurious nor seedy, but somewhere in between. I was alone, so opted for a small room with one queen bed, which was the cheapest. More U.S. hotels should have this option. I needed proximity to the airport and restaurants plus a free shuttle. The hotel met all of these requirements. Naturally I assumed that it would be clean, which it was. It was too cold for the outside restaurant at the hotel, but the little Italian restaurant across the street was cheaper and was excellent enough that I was moved to write a TA review! I would stay here again under the same circumstances, namely an overnight between flights.
