I made a reservation through Park Sleep Fly. I had to cancel my reservation and unfortunately it was at 21 hours instead of 24. While I understand why they need 24 hours notice so they can book the room, I asked if they could try to fill the room (they are booked up so the chances are very likely they... More

Reasonable size room and bed, the was well serviced daily, a reasonable breakfast with lots of choice, the WiFi was not to good and did not... More

We were placed in a room near the lobby, which is near the street and the bus line, and the bus has to signal every time it crosses the street. Not to mention the traffic. You can imagine the noise. But the room was actually fine, even nice in some ways. Not sure what the rooms are like that are... More

Booked a room and left my credit card info. After a few hours of searching tripadvisor and reading the negative comments decided to stay some place else. After a couple of hours after making my reservation I called back to cancel. I spoke with the same person I had made the reservation and confirmed my reservation was cancelled. I never... More

This place was NOTHING that we had expected. The rooms need a serious makeover. The furniture was all banged up. The internet, shall I say, SUCKED!!! I understand its an old place but you got to take care of it!!! We had a room with 2 beds meaning usually a 'double' room. First thing had a problem with the TV... More

Chose this hotel for a Park, Sleep and Fly package. Place is very old and rooms need a re-vamp, although their web site says "All of Caravelle's rooms including mini-suites have been upgraded and furnished with contemporary Italian decor and theme." Either that was written 10 years ago, or the room I stayed in missed the upgrade. Carpet was threadbare.... More

Don't stay here unless you are absolutely desperate for a roof over your head for the night. Grubby rooms, I have loads of bites from goodness knows what. Joke of a 'breakfast'. Staff who are polite but don't actually care. All in all - dreadful.

We had clean spacious room on bottom floor for 90$. It is 5-10 minutes driving from airport. Accross the street are few Ok Asian food restaurants. The two younger receptionists were really kind, while older guy should change the job. Breakfast has to be improved also. Would stay again 1 night before flight.

The staff were horrible. Worst customer service ever. They charged an additional deposit after we had already paid for the room in advance. The booking said we could request a roll away bed and they wouldn't let us have one. My husband ended up having to buy a cot and bring it in. He kept requesting and extra pillow and... More

We got scammed and charged $310 by this place. We returNed the key to an employee and they claim it was lost and the room had a smoker. Not true. The room was run down and felt dirty. The cold water did not work in the sink. The cable tv did not work. Consider anyplace but here. We are in... More
