As another review post mentions, this place definitely seemed better days and the price would fit if it was half. I booked this hotel on Hotwire as a mystery airport hotel for one night before leaving to go to our real destination. However, after realizing that I would have to pay for a shuttle service ($13 one way, but we were charged $15 because our flight was delayed) , I kind of regretted it because I could've just booked at a traditional airport hotel such as a Holiday Express that offers free shuttle service every 20 min for a similar price. However, the service was pretty good at least as well as the breakfast in the morning (Juice, sweet biscuits, eggs, mixed fruits, coffee). Host was very accommodating and very friendly!
The room itself was clean but outdated. Floors were evidently swept and sheets were crisp. It has a motel-esque feel to it because everything is old, but at least it's clean! However, I wasn't too excited to find little black ants all along the shower and the sink. Other than that, everything was functional. It has all the basic necessities you would need. I would recommend this hotel for a one night crash if your flight is getting in late.
