Let me start by saying that I have read the previous reviews, and customer care responses and I can attest to what they promised, things HAVE improved.
If you get a special deal on the room, you can get it for well under $100 all-inc. I was expecting to "get what you paid for" but no, I was pleasantly surprised by the following:
1. Room was very nice, clean and spacious.
2. Bathroom was great, except for the curtain being a bit too narrow for the bathtub.
3. LCD TV was a lot larger than average hotel TVs.
4. 24hr coffeeshop in the lobby that's manned and has actually attractive baked goods!
5. FREE wifi that was actually fast and doesn't block VOIP apps like Viber.
6. Nice clean and presentable lobby that is actually manned.
My only criticisms were:
1. Parking is $12 (not bad I agree, but given the airport location, they can afford to give guests free parking).
2. The surrounding area is UGLY. You don't really want to look out the window (granted, they have little control over that).
3. The hotel exterior direly needs a facelift. You would never expect the quality of the lobby/rooms if judging by how the hotel looks from outside.
