We booked this hotel because we wanted something cheap and closed to the airport (within 15 minute drive). We were using the room to catch 5-6 hours sleep before our flight left the next morning.
We arrived from Hawaii at midnight and got to the hotel shortly after that, to be told that there computer systems had been down all day and they had manually check in and check out guests and that needed to set aside and wait a while before they could determine if they had any rooms available for us.
My hushand threw a fit and told the girl we needed a room to catch a few hours sleep before we checked out the next morning at 6am. Finally, they gave us a room key. It was 1:00 by then - Needless to say I got 4 hours sleep that night.
Room itself was just okay.
THEY DO NOT HAVE A HAIR DRYER ON THE WALL - so you'll need to call housekeeping and they bring a regular one up to your room. Bathroom is very, very small compared to other hotel rooms.
Bed was comfortable. Decor was a little out of date but that really didn't concern us too much.
