Super close to airport and walkable to Sidney
Posted Sep 7, 2016
The best thing this hotel has going for it is it's proximitry to the airport and their shuttle service.
Only about 7 minutes to the airport and the shuttle runs every half hour. We did not hear planes during the night and were able to sleep well because the room was not stuffy .Some rooms have a ground floor walled patio which is very nice. The bed linens are very nice , towels are thin but the room is huge with a mini kitchen which is super for storing anything you need to refrigerate.
On the down side you can hear every toilet in the building flush and likewise for any running water. Same goes for noise in the halls but that is pretty standard for this level of hotel.
I was suprised at the relatively high cost as it is only a medium grade hotel however they are no doubt capitalizing on their location which does work out well for early and late arrivals and departures.
Breakfast is included but don't look for anything healthy, it's all vending style, white, sugary filler food typical of chain hotels. There are excellent eateries in town and don't pass up a chance for dinner at Haro's the restaurant in the ocean front hotel on the warf, upscale and expensive but very delicious and a definate memory maker! Fresh fish specials are recomended.
We used Travel lodge for the first and last night of our trip and it was a very very good way to cut travel time to airport and have a restful night in a comfy bed.
