"Disappointed"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel was very clean and I would have not had any issues except I saw baby roaches. I saw two in bathroom (floor) of course I killed them. Then while laying in bed we saw a German Roach crawl up the wall killed it. After two minutes later another one OMG killed it again. No more bugs were seen but will not stay here again due to bugs. It's a shame because all staff were very friendly and overall the hotel was very clean.

The breakfast was pretty good. Had waffles, juice and pastries both days. Rooms were fairly good sized. One of the nightstand outlets did not work so we were forced to choose either radio or lamp. Room was on third floor so noise levels were Okay both nights.

"Cheap"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
It was very dirty all around. Could not find a bottle of water to buy. They did offer water by the coffee but the container looked dirty. Was told we could get a shuttle to the airport at 4:30 which was the main reason we booked. We get there later at night and stop before we returned the car and asked about the shuttle to pick us up when we dropped the car off. They stated no shuttle is running tonight so in the am, I asked about the shuttle and he stated they don't start until 5:30. There were 20 people waiting for the shuttle so we would have missed our flight based on them. Would not stay there again.
