Most everything was great. Staff, shuttle and comfort were good. The only complaint I have was the shower cleanliness. There was mold at the top of the shower.

Great Value

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, clean
Cons: cheap fitness center not functional
Friendly staff. Nice casual grill with lots of good food options. Open lobby and pool area. Clean rooms. Quiet (except for the occasional airplane taking off, which you'll have at an airport hotel). The mattresses seemed old and not too supportive. The fitness center left much to be desired as there was only one treadmill and four people wanting to use it in the morning, the elliptical machine which felt like it was going fall apart, and the stepper didn't work. Other than not getting my planned workout, the hotel was a great value.

GREAT HOTEL!

Pros: Quiet
Cons: no free breakfast
The hotel was excellent, the staff was excellent, the room was excellent, the bed was so comfortable, the only bad thing I can say is no complimentary breakfast (a donut or bagel would have worked). I will definetly stay there again, and I will recommend this hotel to a friend!

super clean and a comfortable bed where you could choose the pillow that suites you best.

Pros: Quiet
The room was very comfortable and clean. We loved the fact that we could choose the softness of our pillow. The value was great for the price.
