I stayed one night at the hotel. You have to call from the airport for the shuttles. They do not have a phone in the baggage claim area. The shuttle took about 15 minutes but that seemed reasonable when I saw where we had to travel.
It is a Holiday Inn Express, so do not expect the Hilton. But you pay less. The hotel was fine. I always look to see how clean the hotel and rooms are kept and I was very pleased with this hotel. I found the rooms well done, bright and lively and well maintained. The complimentary breakfast the next morning was very good. The staff was very efficient and friendly as were the shuttle drivers. There is a diner just a block away if you do not have a car. Without a car you are very limited as to availability in the area..
Overall I was very pleased with the hotel and would stay again. The one concern I had was with the internet access. It is complimentary but I had a great deal of getting online and staying online with my iPad. They might want to look at the access.
