Yes, you get what you pay for but felt like we paid $150 for a shower at a YMCA. Our flight was cancelled at 11pm and rescheduled for 7am so we opted for a hot shower and bed instead of sleeping at airport. With the weather every hotel was full so we ended up here. Magically the rate was twice what was advertised even though we only needed it for 6 hours. There were mattresses stacked in every hallway, in our room an extension cord ran up from the floor to power the lamps, cable line running in from a crude hole in the ceiling, and a space heater to heat the room which was on 3 out of 4 legs and was one of 5 things plugged into the extension cord. They offered a "free" airport shuttle every half hour BUT BEWARE, they only take you to a place you can get the plane train which can mean another 45 min to your actual terminal (if it's running). Actual drop off at the terminal was available again magically for an up-charge, which they only explained after loading our bags. We opted for a $10 cab ride instead which dropped us right at the gate. On the positive side, in a pinch we had a hot shower in an old but clean bathroom, mattress and bedding seemed clean and front desk was as helpful as needed. If you are stuck and need something close to airport I'd try all the other brand names around here first, but in our situation it was fine -- if it hadn't been twice the cost of our very modest Courtyard Marriott the night before, I wouldn't even bother to write a review, but I guess I can't fault them for taking advantage of desperate travelers to make a buck. They have to make a living too.
