First of all this property was impossible for us to find. Construction around the airport clearly contributed to the confusion, but the hotel is located in somewhat of an industrial area vs. where the other hotels are located. I looks like a minimum security correctional facility. Surrounded by a tall fence and you have to be "buzzed" in making you wonder why the perimeter enclosure is necessary considering anyone could drive in right behind you. I suppose the extra security is nice, but somewhat of an inconvenience. You could easily drive by the hotel and not even notice it.
The hotel is very clean which I attribute to its recent opening. No restaurant, no bar - no frills! There is a snack bar located behind the front desk, but it is pricey. The rooms have microwaves so you might want to bring some snacks along to save a few bucks. Continental breakfast starts early and provides a nice selection. My kids especially liked the mango smoothie shots.
