If you can afford better......... Staff was super, room was very small but clean. No smoking was indicated but the room smelled from years of smokers. Rooms were very outdated and in need of fresh paint. We stayed as the Park-Sleep-Fly package.

Got the park and fly special here. I'm not exactly high maintenance especially when it comes to hotels I just plan on staying in for one night. But from the minute I walked into the room here I was blown away by how gross this place was. Long story short, I actually wound up paying an additional $70 to stay...

Came up as first choice with Trip Advisor. It was cheapest overnight stay. Staff was pleasant enough but the place is generally so old and run down that , even though we left our car there, we decided not to sleep there.

OMG, if I could give a zero I would. Where do I start. Stayed as a stop over after visiting family. Arrived, reception looked ok, then it hit us what a dive it really was, the stench of stale smoke and fresh smell of the what you can't buy in the store, type of smoke. Overwhelmed to say the least....

We chose this hotel primarily because it was close to the airport and we could leave our car at no extra charge and take the shuttle. At $130/night, we did not expect a luxury hotel, but also did not expect a dump, but a dump is what we found. To get to our room, we walked on carpet so dirty...

I debated on giving this terrible place two stars - only because the staff was friendly and the location was convenient to the airport. However I couldn't do it. I can't believed we were taken for $90 thanks to the Ryder Cup. Had I paid $39 maybe I wouldn't be surprised. The room was large and had a good TV...
