    Rooms were clean and staff were nice. The breakfast is plentiful compared to other hotel chains. The selection is just the same as other Holiday Inn Express hotels. The location is good and far enough away from all of the traffic.

    You can also call the hotel. I know they have a shuttle if you reserve in advance to the airport, and I'm pretty sure it's free.
