6/10 Good

Positives 5 minutes drive from the airport. Provides complimentary hotel shuttle to the airport 24/7. Very clean room Staff were friendly Negatives The hotel had an awful smell when entered. There was a smell of sewage in our room when the AC was on. It was very unpleasant and made it hard to sleep. We turned off the AC and the room was tolerable. We felt safe at this hotel. Other than the unpleasant smell, the hotel was a great value close to the airport to catch a 4 A.M flight.

4/10 Fair

Good location, but room did not have sheets. Took well over an hour to get sheets. Then in morning discovered there was no bath towel. Internet in lobby did not work. Also, attempted to call hotel numeroustimes before arrival and they simply do not answer the phone.
