My stay here started off on the right foot; I didn't know what to expect in terms of finding the shuttle at the airport, but I literally walked out the door and boarded the shuttle that was sitting there waiting. I was a little confused because as we were driving to the hotel, the sign in the bus said that Bastion guests have to transfer to a different bus at Best Western, but the first stop was Bastion.
The room was spotless and comfortable. The bed was a little hard for my taste, but I slept fine. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the traffic noise. Sure, I heard planes in the morning, but my biggest complaint was car traffic noise since the hotel is right next to the highway. It woke me up several times throughout the night, even over the sound of a white noise machine that I always travel with.
My husband and I had dinner at the hotel restaurant, and I will agree with another reviewer that the service was painfully slow. All we ordered was 2 bowls of soup, and somehow it took half an hour to get our food. There were only a few other tables, and everyone else had their food, so I have no idea why it would take so long to heat up 2 bowls of soup. In the morning we walked to McDonald's for breakfast and this was super easy since it's in the Bastion parking lot.
Friendly staff. Free wifi worked just fine. All in all I would stay again.
