I stayed for one night in January 2013.

We had one of our worst accommodation experiences ever at the Highway Inn. The service was the most appalling and the outside of building was filthy.

Basic accommodation. Single beds, TV. Share bathrooms - used by truckers and next to a truck depot - wasnt noisy on my stay. Rooms at back of bar.....food and drink on offer but nothing else nearby. Late check in available. Easy drive ( I actually walked 40 minutes) to airport. 15 minute walk to public transport.

Good location for airport. Clean motel, friendly staff, very helpful. All the faciilities you need for a nights stay, plus food and bar. Obviously aimed at lorry drivers. Nonetheless, as a lone car traveller, I was made welcome and made to feel comfortable. Would use again if I am in the area.
