I booked at this motel because it is convenient to reach the airport from it and the price was good as we were going to arrive late afternoon with our 6 year old grandson and leave early as we had a 7:30a.m. flight.
We arrived around 9p.m. and had a little difficulty finding the motel...everything was much smaller on the outside than the photos on-line had indicated. Then we had difficulty understanding what the manager said as English was NOT his primary language. We got to our room and again it was much smaller than indicated on-line. The room did appear clean but with a worn out look. I helped our grandson get ready for a shower before bed and discovered there no hot water so now we had three very hot, sweaty people with no chance for a shower. Which might be a good thing as the towels were paper thin and exactly 3 in the room. My husband went to get bottled water (most motels these days supply at least one per guest in the room) . He put money in the machine and no water, no money back..... so he tried to have a conversation with the manager and after quite awhile did get the money back....the vending machine was outside and there was nothing inside that allowed you to get a drink or snack. The air-conditioner was so loud it vibrated the front door, so we had to stuff paper in to stop that. Then all night long it went from a volume of a jet plane landing to a dull roar off and on every few minutes until we wanted to tear our hair out, but it was way too hot to turn it off. The beds were double beds, which I now know mean a full bed, not queen size bed and the bedding was smaller than should be and the pillows flatter - in other words very little sleep, like three hours and we had to get up at 5:00 to be at the airport by 6:30a.m. The manager had told us (I think that is what he said) that there would be coffee and breakfast available when we left the next morning.....as we pulled out of the parking lot the office and breakfast area there was no lights on and no one there to greet us for the promised breakfast....we left the keys on the desk tired, hot, hungry and upset! It would have been better to have slept in our car than at this place. NEVER AGAIN!
