    The smell was unbearable- like gas station perfume- and it was everywhere. The pillows were also some of the worst I've ever encountered. Really nice staff and it's a cute place, but I won't be staying here again!

    The Sam does not have a shuttle to the airport. They typically recommend Uber as the least expensive way.
