The hotel could benefit from some interior noise abatement measures. Talking in the hallway was loud enough to be disturbing. It seemed that the door was extremely thin or perhaps had a large gap on the bottom. It was difficult to sleep due to several incidences of loud talking or door slams.

It was a nice motel close to the airport. We didn't like the fact that the bedspread was the blanket.

Clean, friendly, and close to the airport.

Pros: Chocolate Chip cookies baked fresh shortly after we arrived.
Cons: Folks with early flights would benefit from a sack breakfast of something as simple as fruit and muffins.
Location: Hotel is located near the airport and a few miles from Southridge mall. Also several restaurants nearby.
Our room was adequate size and was very clean. The hotel staff s very friendly upon check-in and check-out. There were fresh baked cookies available in the lobby the evening of our arrival. Unfortunately we were unable to enjoy the breakfast due to a early flight. It would be great if they could make a sack breakfast available for early travelers.

Decent hotel for the money

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Hotel was generally clean but the room quality was probably somewhere in the 25% of all hotels (of all price ranges). Toilet bowl got clogged once and i had to unclog it myself after staff provided the plunger. But it was not that bad. The free breakfast was very basic but at least coffee was decent. In general, decent hotel for the money.

Experience ok

The only problem we had is that there were no drawers to place clothing items other than the night stand. When I called front desk, a young lady (obviously not on the job long), and asked for extra hangers (there were only 5 in commode), she told me there were no extra hangers and suggested I go to a convenience store and purchase some!!?!!! I explained that there were no drawers so we really needed more hangers in order to hang some of our things. ""Sorry"" was all I got. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. I'm sure if Manager knew what had happened in our conversation he/she would have been upset! We enjoyed having the coffee carafes full into the evening when we arrived back at the hotel and would stay there again.

Use extreme caution when checking in

We were quoted a price of $ for our room for a three day stay. Upon checking out the room rate increased each day. It cost us $ more then what we expected and were quoted over the phone. Had no luck with trying to deal with the staff to correct this they claimed because we signed the register it was a done deal. Please be warned these people are very deceptive and do not till you the room rate increase. Watch what you sign when you check in.
