We chose the hotel because of its proximity to the airport, it's only a 15 minute car ride. However, be aware that it's located outside the regular city zone and thus a taxi fare will be around 50 Euro per trip. If you have a rental car that's not an issue. However, due to unforseen circumstances we had to return our rental car earlier and ended up with expensive taxi rides. One time the taxi driver overcharged us but we were able to get him to talk to the night clerk at Motel Corsi who helped us over the language barrier and corrected the fare.
The location is also close to several nice sandy beaches (about 6 km). We got excellent directions from the Motel staff and had a good time relaxing at the end of our vacation.
The room (we had a quad on the 3rd floor) was what we had expected for this price range: clean, just big enough, no luxury, decent sized bathroom with large shower that was great to wash off the beach sand. The mattress wasn't great but we've seen worse in Italy. Air conditioning was in good shape and very appreciated on a day with 35 C. Some train noise was audible even with closed windows. During the night it calmed down.
We had to leave before 5 am to catch our flight. The wake-up call was prompt. No breakfast offered at this time, though, and shuttle service to the airport starts not till later so it was another expensive taxi ride for us.
And yes, we can definitely recommend the restaurant accross the street.
