    I liked the price and the cleanliness and comfort. Staff were congenial - room was warm and clean!

    I had to ask for a hairdryer, and they advertised a breakfast bar which they did not have.

    The facility was a little run down. there were large holes in the carpet and the heat registers were damaged.

    Showers were not water controlled, so when I showered I burnt my back a few times as the shower water gets hot and cold.

  • Older travelers

    There was no place to hang our dress clothes or winter coats. Perhaps even hooks on the wall would work well.

  • Older travelers

    We could leave our car there when flying out, even though they charged us.

    I wasn't sure if we should take off our boots, floor was not very clean. Staff did not know if she could call us a cab in the morning. Price did not include either leaving our car there or a cab to the airport. That was extra. WAY too expensive for what we got.
