We enjoyed a large, clean room with comfortable beds in a convenient location. The breakfast we great, too. And the front desk staff was very helpful. There was also a shuttle to/from the airport and it's near the light rail line.

Room was not clean; sheets gray; no hangers and none provided when asked for them; no dining available which was one reason we chose it ; toilet ran unless took toop off to assist; when turned heat on a terrible smell came out so we turned it off and wore coats to sleep in.

I didn't know about the breakfast because it wasn't mentioned when I checked in. I wouldn't have made it anyway, because my request for an early call was not met. I did appreciate the shuttle to the airport.

Clean room, affordable, close to airport. Great value. Breakfast included which was nice. Great local taco truck a couple blocks away, walking distant. Only complaint was my non-smoking room smelled a little smoky. Other than that very happy with my stay

First we had no indication which shuttle we should take. If you book here do find the name of the shuttle from the hotel as we watched a shuttle that appeared to be for parking go and did not realize that it also was the shuttle for the hotel. I booked more than two months in advanced, asked for ground...
