We stayed here as a stop prior to our cruise. For what you pay, I dont think you can do better. Major perks: free airport shuttle, good free breakfast, optional secure gated long term parking, close proximity to airport, pool, hot tub and most areas are renovated. Other hotels in the area dont offer one thing or another. The area is good if you want to be close to the airport. Other than that, the areas near the hotel are trashy (literally). There are a few food joints in the strip mall across the street, a grocery store and a cvs/wallgreens but the parking lots and streets are full of trash. Some stores, you are hard pressed to find people who speak fluent English. The hotel and grounds are quite clean and nice. The common areas appear to be updated. Our room looked like the bathroom was updated with a dark vanity and modern fixtures. The bed was decent and had a warm down comforter(bit too warm for us). The rest of the room had dated oak furnishings and a gold trimmed full length mirror. Overall quite nice and clean, especially for the price and proximity to the airport. We would stay here again.
