    We have a 10 a.m flight home on Feb. 14. We would like to stay with you Feb 12 and 13. Can I drop my rental car at the airport late afternoon on February 13, get a shuttle or cab back to your place, then get shuttle from you to airport on Feb. 14? Please advise. Thank you. Bill Earls

    Get the airport shuttle The folks who run the shuttle also manage the hotel. They are great people. Do not use a cab. They are expensive

    If there is no public transportation within walking distance, take the complimentary shuttle to the airport, I'm confident that there are buses making scheduled runs to the city center...check the airport website.

    They do not start the airport shuttle service too early, maybe 8 AM. They arranged a 4:30 AM taxi for me. It showed up on time and only cost about $7 (USD) with tip.
