Needed a one night's stay before a cruise and discovered this hotel online. Reviews were consistently good and the Entertainment rate was a steal so couldn't pass up. Good thing we didn't as this turned out to be a perfect pre-cruise stay.
Called the hotel upon our arrival at the airport and they said a shuttle would be by to pick us up in 15 minutes. Well, 15 minutes later the shuttle came, which was a pleasant surprise given the fact that the hotel usually only does pickups once per hour, on the hour.
Hotel is located 10-15 minutes away in a quiet area next to a Holiday Inn Express. Was greeted by a friendly front desk clerk who provided us with a welcome bag of water and chips for belonging to their reward program. N/S Room was huge with a kitchen area, sitting area, and a king bed.
There is a great restaurant bar located just outside the hotel and the complimentary breakfast offered in the hotel is more than adequate with both hot items (eggs, some spam-like hash, waffles) and cold (yogurt, cereals, breads/pastries, fruit). Finding free tables was not a problem. Free internet is also available on 2 computers in their business centre.
For those looking for an inexpensive, yet quality, place to stay short-term near the airport, this hotel is perfect. The free airport shuttle is convenient and cost-saving, and the taxi to the cruise terminal was less than $40 without tip. A super deal overall!
