This hotel has been recently remodeled - half of it is new and the other half is an older roadside motel. The hotel required us to sign a notice about the non-smoking room and said that we would have to pay about $300 if we smoked in the room. We requested non-smoking and were given a room on the old side. As soon as we walked in, the smell of a smoking room was VERY noticable. The beds were visibly dipped in the middle. We pulled down the bedspread and saw holes from cigarette burns in the blanket. There were also lots of stains on the furniture and the carpet.
We requested to be moved to a true non-smoking room and were given a room in the newer half of the hotel. It looked and smelled better, but it still wasn't great.
The hotel has free breakfast and a free shuttle to the airport every hour.
I would recommend staying at the Holiday Inn Express right across the street.
