For most of the necessities in life, there are adequate products that do everything you need at a very low cost. Many levels of higher priced products are available, but they won't provide a better solution. It is only through marketing that consumers are convinced that the higher priced product is better and will somehow make them happier. This is a really great hotel that made me very happy because (over a 3 day stay) it did everything I needed when staying in the BWI area at a fair price. Heck, it is a true bargain. Friendly shuttle drivers pick you up at the airport -- just specify which door to meet you, upper or lower level. There is a clean and tidy office with friendly accommodating staff. Elevators are available to the upper floors. The rooms are clean and large. OK, the art on the walls is nothing to write home about, the sheets aren't starched, the bedspreads are boring, and the carpet is a bit worn (but clean).The beds are adequate and the bathrooms are plenty big enough and equipped with soap and shampoo. The shower works well, with plenty of hot water. The free wireless internet is fast most of the time except in the evenings when the hotel is busy. There are electrical outlets but if you want to work with your laptop on the bed, it will be easiest if you bring your own extension cord (I always do). There is no restaurant in the hotel, but there is a Quiznos next door and you can walk to a McDonalds (open 24 hours -- they will take walking customers at the drive-through if the sit-down restaurant is closed). However, I'd stay away from the McDonalds and walk up the hill to the Chili's restaurant where you can get the Quesadilla Explosion Salad, with dressing on the side. A healthy option (if you don't eat too many of the Quesadillas and avoid the dressing) which will titillate your taste buds due to the terrific combination of spices and the taco strips. You don't need a lot of money to survive comfortably today. You just need to select basic products like this hotel and avoid the marketing messages that up-sell to more expensive products that don't satisfy needs any better. By the way, a team of painters was working on the hotel, so I expect that it will be even nicer when you arrive.
