    Nice place/ will go back

    This is a nice clean hotel that has God’s service. The food was good and the employees were responsive. There was an issue with my air conditioner, and it took 3 visits fort then to get it to work properly. Then in the middle of the night the panel for the AC just feel open/ fortunately it was in the middle of the night, or it may have right on the head.

    Quick layover stay

    Very quick stay in between flights. Nice room and good service overall. Nice pit stop if you’re on a short layover and need some quick rest without going into town.

    Tired and Smelly.

    Close to airport. Hotel is looking tired however and the rooms need a refurbish. The smell of the room was horrendous. However, as we only used the hotel for a few hours before a flight we were too tired to complain.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This hotel is new and looks better in person than the photos posted. It is conveniently located to the airport (10min drive with traffic) . Great security around the building as well. The sauna was a great addition to the gym, which also has an instructor. The restaurant was great as well. Strong WiFi options in the bedroom and around facilities. Would stay here again if necessary to be close to the airport.
