When picking up our rental car, the fellow at Economy suggested Hotel Santa Maria Inn and thankfully they had a room. When we arrived, the host was extremely pleasant. We were tired and just wanted to get a pizza and have an Imperial beer. He said he loved pizza and his favorite place delivered. So we did just that...relaxed and...

Clean rooms with friendly English speaking staff. Close to airport as traffic can be a big problem getting to and from airport. Courtesy car transfer provided. Safe area in which to spend a night. Has communal kitchen area if you wish to prepare a meal or snack. You do get airport noise but that is expected.

Cozy, quiet and quaint! Super friendly family that share running the hotel and the shuttle service. It is just far enough out of the city noise and yet still close to the airport. I will definitely be back :)

We had an early flight the next day, so wanted to stay close to the airport. They provided exactly what we needed. Secure location, clean room, and thats it.

No microwave, or room refrigerator in room, but a common use area has a refrigerator, microwave and counter top for food preparation.”
