We booked this hotel for a family reunion trip. It wasn't close to the location of the reunion, but we were sold on the fact that it was close-ish to the airport, had an airport shuttle, and there were 3 car rental locations within walking distance if we needed a car.
I got a great price on Hotwire, probably one of the cheapest places in town, as downtown hotels were going to cost almost triple and did not provide airport shuttle service. Considering the lower price of other locations around the area, I was happy to take what I could get from this place, but I still expected some basic amenities (which they did have)
The bed was actually VERY comfortable, and we slept very well both nights we were there. No complaints about the room in general. The floors weren't "moist or sticky" like other reviewers said. We did have one small water bug in our bathroom, but it went away without any problems, and Im not overly concerned about such a small creature. Most hotels have the bathroom essentials, such as soap, shampoo and conditioner. They had these, but they were in "pumps" attached to the walls, which I was somewhat taken aback by. I didnt use them as I had my own items, but I definitely wouldnt have used them if I didnt have my own. Just seems strange.
There is only one plug in the bathroom, so for women like me who like to have their curling irons heating up while they dry their hair, its not going to happen. Its not a huge inconvenience, but something to note.
Breakfast was actually pretty good. Scrambled eggs, bacon and biscuits and gravy. There was a short lull in the biscuits being restocked, but overall, it was hot, free and tasty.
My ONLY concern is the shuttle service. It arrived in a timely fashion (approximately 25 minutes from the time we called.) The hotel is about 20 minutes from the airport, so consider the time it takes a shuttle to get there and drop other passengers off. If you want them quicker, consider calling them as soon as you get off the plane to allow yourself time to grab your bags etc. However, my concern lies in the way the driver drove the shuttle. It was erratic, over the speed limit, and at times scary. Two people honked at the driver because the bus swayed over into the other drivers lane.
The location is good if you are looking to go downtown. The hotel offers a shuttle service to the downtown area (check with them for the specific schedule). Although we didn't use this service, it was about a $20 cab ride downtown. Not too bad. We also rented a car from the Hertz close-by as we wanted to explore outside of the immediate area.
The A/C works, the hot water was hot, the faucets work, the TV worked, and overall it was an average experience. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have :)
