The shuttle driver to and from the amusement park was amazing, and she also hosted breakfast one morning. She will be the thing I remember about this stay. The location is not ideal, but the staff more than makes up for it.More

You can also call the hotel. I know they have a shuttle if you reserve in advance to the airport, and I'm pretty sure it's free.
