No shuttle from the airport or the pier so the savings on the room may disappear depending on your method of transportation.

Barely acceptable, dirty rugs, missing towels and although it was a smoking room they could have sprayed some Febreze around

Just needed a clean, inexpensive room for one night. Met that expectation. Clean and felt safe, even though very busy with evacuees from east coast. Downsides - shower fixture was broke, barely a trickle. Upside, young woman at desk when I checked in was very nice and helpful.
