    Very convenient for airport. Minimilastic entrance so not appealing on first entering. Room clean. Wifi good. Breakfast very good considering it was free. Great choice. Staff average - front desk helpful with taxi. Would recommend as so easy and convenient.

    I don´t think so. They barely have wi-fi (it´s pay to use). But then again, that´s part of the experience of being in the wilderness. Just my two cents.
