We stayed there overnight when we needed a cheap stopover hotel when our flight plan got changed up. I was skeptical at first because low price usually means low quality but since it was for one night I decided to not even Google it just deal with whatever met me.
The taxi was about $30US because he drove us through KFC to pick up something to eat. It was probably more like $21 as the 4am return was $25. It was about 20 mins from the airport.
We got there late at night and they didn't have our reservation, which we made online earlier in the afternoon. However a quick call by the desk agent to 'someone' sorted it all out. I noticed as I drove in that it was quite new looking and pleasantly laid out with good parking. Rooms were on two levels. A few snacks sold in the office. Quick check-in process.
They took us to a building with a main door and then individual apartments to both of which we had keys - the main and our apt, so we felt quite secure. We could smell food and hear voices when we came in. Note to self - the walls are a little thin, but not overbearingly so.
The studio room (US$60 on booking.com) was quite pleasant and roomy with a little kitchenette and I have to say it was extremely clean. I've worked in the hotel industry so I know to check up top mirrors for dust and stuff. No dust, white sheets, very simply furnished, communal iron and board in the hallway. A few basic amenities, a/c and powerful free WiFi which we were THRILLED about. Cable and radio alarm clock which we never got to use. And most importantly squeaky clean bathrooms.
On checkout if the office is closed as it was because we left at 4 we are to leave keys and remotes in the room. The desk agent was to book us a taxi but we never saw it. However because the room guide had emergency after hours nos we were able to call Julie I think her name was and she came promptly (at 3:45am) to rush us to the airport. When we tried to pay her she said 'That's for putting the minutes back on your phone' :).
Overall we had a comfortable pleasant stay, though it was only overnight. I would recommend it and go again. Since I can't speak to a longer experience, if I do go again for a longer time I will post again. Thanks for everything.
