I wasn't expecting much from a "cheap" airport hotel ($171.90) but I didn't expect to be given a Smoking room! I didn't know they still existed! they said it was a last-minute booking (true) and they were sold out. The room, really, really stank. I didn't want to open my suitcase. My Travelocity reservation clearly says non-smoking. I called the front desk and they miraculously found another room. It was a very long walk away--I wish they told me to drive--but the non-smoking room is much better, except for the gaping cigarette burn hole on one of the bed spreads! The whole place is old and dingy. The staff are perfectly nice and helpful. There is plenty of parking and there is a pool. They have wifi, although you have to log on repeatedly. There's soap and a hair dryer. If that's enough for you, okay. ... But I say, Don't stay here unless you have a strong stomach. Which reminds me, breakfast is no longer free.

Room Tip: Ask to face away from the street and be sure to get a smoke-free room. I didn't know smoking roo...

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in July 2013. Our car was broken into on the second night - the rear window was smashed and a gament bag with $800 worth of stuff was stolen. Parked right next to the pool. Police report was filed. The policeman mentioned that there have been numerous recent break-ins within the same parking lot. Manager did not care, and never came to see the damage. Never apologized. The glass on the pavement was never cleaned up. The police have been begging the motel to install security cameras, but they refuse to. If you value your stuff, do NOT stay at this hotel!!!! These people do not care about you!

As others have mentioned, the condition of the rooms was horrible. There was barely room to turn around in our bathroom.

We had an early morning flight and this fit the bill in terms of location and price.

It really is basic but we had none of the horror stories that some people have reported.

It is what it is. We got there late and there was a bit of chaos in the check-in area. The accommodation blocks seem spread out - bit like a barracks - but the room was adequate for our purposes and we left early anyway.

If I were not afraid of picking up some disease, getting mugged in the parking lot or if I could actually fall asleep right at the end of a airport runway next to a freeway this motel would be funny. Alas it’s not funny; it’s awful, especially considering this is a major hotel chain. The bathroom light didn’t work, the fan was deafening, the tub surround was moldy and coming off the wall, the wallpaper was pealing and stained, When I pulled the bedside table away from the wall to plug in my phone charger there was graffiti on the wall. I’ve stayed in some dives in my life, but this could well be the worst motel room ever. This is a $35 a night room for $190. Wow.

Room Tip: Bring your disinfectant wipes!
