    This Motor Inn is great for a short stay, located close to the city and airport. The room, though a little cramped, was clean and comfortable with tasteful furnishings. Good off road parking and easy access to local eateries. The staff are friendly and courteous.

    I am not aware of any shuttle service, but it is easy to get a taxi at the airport, and not crazy expensive. I can't remember just how much as I was on a business trip so not using my own money!!
