We needed a hotel near the airport where I could fly in and then take the shuttle to meet my husband, spend the night and be on our way the next day. And we needed to do this twice, coming and going.
When I flew into the airport I called to ask the desk person to send the shuttle. She gave me no guidance on where to pickup the bus and there were no signs in the airport so it took me a while to find it. I missed it on its first run but was lucky enough to get a tiny corner seat on the second run. I walked into the hotel, past the desk and headed for our room (my husband had told me the room number when I called him when I landed). The woman came after me from behind the front desk and got pretty confrontational. I was very surprised considering I'm a pudgy, gray-haired 60 year old female federal employee and not considered scary by much of anyone. It was weird. This all kind of set the tone for the first visit.
On our second visit, the property wasn't very busy and the atmosphere was quite a bit friendlier. The location is key here and yet it is a two edged sword. The location close to the airport is very convenient, but some of the area immediately around the hotel is pretty rough. We moved our car away from the back fence although we probably didn't need to as we didn't have any problems, but the neighborhood next to the hotel did give us some concerns.
The property and the rooms were quite comfortable. The decor is older and in need of some updating but the room was clean and the appointments were sufficient to our needs. We did not pay a premium price for our stay so I felt that overall we received good value. This hotel is fine for a one night stay before or after a flight, but I would not recommend it for anything more.
