This hotel is fine if you want an affordable room near the airport. It is located next door to Charley's Steak House which is a huge plus, so you can walk over and have a fantastic meal. The airport shuttle was friendly, but took 20 minutes to pick me up. The driver told me that he was on his way back to the hotel when I called in. He also informed me that the hotel operator should have told me when I called and offered me to take a cab and they would pay for it. Had I known that, I would have done it, but the hotel operator never offered it, so I was stuck waiting for him. When I arrived, the check in was prompt and the front desk clerk was very nice. She gave me a drink coupon for having to wait so long, which I thought was a very nice gesture. The bartender was very nice and the cocktail was good. The room was ok, a little old, but clean with a comfortable bed. My room was not on the interstate side, so it was nice and quiet. I enjoyed a good sleep and a very nice breakfast (Free- Hilton Honors Diamond). All in all I was perfectly satisfied with the hotel. It is a bit dated and the hallways are a bit 1980s office building like, but the room was clean and the staff friendly. When just staying overnight near an airport on a budget, it's hard to ask for too much more. It's not upscale accommodations by any means, but a clean room, with a comfortable bed, next to a great restaurant, a free shuttle, smiling faces, and a nice breakfast all work for me!
