although the shuttle service driver was nice/helpful as was the front desk staff, the room was not what I had hoped. Ended up with tons of bedbug bites the next morning! Didn't have time to report the bedbug problem

Well, for starters we left the hotel just 5 minutes after checking in because it was so disgusting. The odor of the hotel and the rooms were of cigarette and cigar smoke as well as animal droppings and urine. There were random people just drunk and high circulating the dump. The beds were hard as cardboard and you can hear...

First of all, it should have be advertised that parking must be paid for. This location sucked because it was nearly impossible to go out and about without hitting an exorbitant toll. The jet noise was obnoxious as well. We didn't get clean towels the entire 3 night stay. No coffee/no continental breakfast. This hotel experience was pretty poor to...

It was just what we needed for one night. Clean, comfortable, & convenient. Shuttle drivers were courteous, desk staff was pleasant, and the room service gentleman was pleasant.
