3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2010

I chose to stay at this "hotel" because I thought it was near the airport and advertised free airport pickup. Boy was I disappointed when we turned into the gated drive of not much more than a house on an isolated residential street what seemed far away from anything. While the room was ok, there was nothing nearby, no shops, restaurants, anything within what seemed like a safe walking distance.

Their website plainly shows Free airport pickup. But it doesn't say ONLY if you book directly with them. And, oh, yea... but NOT free RETURN to the airport. Lame.

No wifi or internet at all in the rooms. At least they were nice enough to let me use the reception computer to skype for a few minutes.
