Easy access from the airport and to surrounding routes. I requested a late check out and was told that wouldn't be a problem, very much appreciated with an afternoon flight as the 10am...

This motor inn was quite nice actually, a standard above your average. The bathroom was immaculate and very modern. Loved the shower in particular. The room service lady was lovely. The staff were generally very nice. $20 for 6 hours of wifi though wasn't awesome.

A bit difficult to find without Sat.Nav.The Shower unit requires attention as the flexible hand unit would not stay in place -kept drooping down towards the floor.A couple of wall mounted hooks in the ensuite would provide a means to hang up clothing rather than on the floor. Only mirror was in the ensuite and another one in the living...

There are normally 4 Towels in the 2 Bed room Apartments, but as you were 5 guests we provided you with 6 Towels.
