I stayed here as an international visitor arriving and needing a place to recover from jet lag. It was easy to catch the shuttle in from the international terminal ($6) and thankfully my room was empty on arrival so I was allowed to check in early.
The room and bathroom are perfectly adequate and I slept well. Gorgeous hot shower. The breakfast is very scant (cereal and bread) but then it's inexpensive at $9.
The WiFi however is very expensive - $20 for 3 hours (there's no 24 hour option) and my experience of it has been shocking. Desperately slow most of the time and even at 4am it kept dropping access entirely, meaning I couldn't even log out of my session so it kept ticking away without me using it. I spent most of my time talking to the Helpdesk (thank goodness I had an Australian mobile phone already).
Next door are a Krispy Kreme, MacDonalds and KFC. I couldn't eat at any of those but it was an easy 7-minute walk to the Domestic terminal to grab some food.
Overall - great for sleeping and showering and fantastic airport access. Don't depend on the WiFi.
