It's located right off a ramp so if you miss it, you'll have to go around again. Staff was nice and met all needs. There was some damage to the lamps and stains and spider webs in the upper wall areas. I wish there lighting near the full body mirror.

Unsatisfied, will never stay again. Poor room quality aside: While the property can’t control people they should be able to enforce their own policies with regards to quite yours for guests. Both nights (Fri/Sat) we had unruly guests next door in the hours of midnight to 4am and the staff was lackadaisical toward their effort to implement their policy and suggested we call the cops on them…lol what? It was unacceptable and we contemplated leaving at 3am it was that bad. a little noise is fine, but the walls are paper thin and Jesus was it unacceptable from the staff to suggest we solve the problem ourselves.

We checked in at 2:00am because our flight was delayed. Checkout was at 11:00, we asked if we could check out at noon and they said we had 15 minutes to check out. I guess you get what you pay for.
