I stayed at this hotel twice coming and going from the Caribbean. Each time I arrived around 10PM and left first thing in the morning. The hotel's location makes this kind of short stay workable -- no shuttle bus and you can walk to it easily -- and there is a good low demand security gate right in front.
The bad news is the they have yet to figure out how to have enough people to check you in when it gets busy. The first time I arrived there was ONE agent with a dozen people until finally a second one showed up -- it took 30 minutes. The second time was better but the agent told me the rush was just over. Be aware -- it can be enough to make you want to scream!
The rooms are older and in need of update -- and fairly variable. The first one was really tired, the second was better. But in both cases the plumbing was quesionable -- no hot water in one and a difficult to flush in the other. And they are small but then again it is only a short stay. They do need to update there sheets -- they were limp and barely stayed on the bed --not so nice.
The good news was the restaurant up at the top. The first time I arrived, I went up stairs and got a very quick bowl of French Onion Soup -- exactly what I needed with a glass of wine -- and they were quick! The second stop they told me there were giving a complimentary breakfast now -- so I tried it. The waiter came quickly, listened that I wanted it fast, and managed a pretty good scrambed egg breakfast. I was impresssed! That place is organized and works.
Would stay there again -- it is so so but great location.
