Pet friendly & close to the airport.

I typically stay in fancier hotels but I needed a pet friendly hotel close to the airport and this was the best fit I could find. There is a small pet deposit that you get back if your pet doesn't leave their mark in your room. I had a queen bed non smoking room. It was decent size and had a comfy lazy boy along with a table and 2 chairs, microwave, refrigerator, decent size flat screen and lots of storage areas. The carpet was definitely outdated and the bedding isn't fancy at all. The pillows were not comfortable but the mattress was fine. The air temperature stayed perfect with a push of a few buttons. You can hear the airplanes so it's not very quiet but I'm a deep sleeper so it didn't bother me. The hotel pays the cab fees from and to the airport so be sure to mention that to the front desk and cab drivers. All and all, it was fine for what I was looking for. If I didn't have a pet with me, I would prefer to stay at a 4 star or higher property or something newer/newly updated.

Spent 2 nites here. Bed comfortable. Room very clean and roomy. Everything worked. Only complaint was location. Had to go thru a maze of roads to get to the hotel.

Just to be clear, they do NOT have an airport shuttle. They will call you a cab only if you get added to a list the night before. Supposedly they pay for the cab. Morning desk guy had no idea how to do either. The manager when I checked in -- not the guy working the desk, who was great -- tried to harass me into signing up for the rewards program. Thought it would be fine for getting to the airport for an early flight. Turned out just barely OK.

Cons: security, security, security
I stayed here twice in same week; actually got same room. The faucet leaked whenever turned on and I told them the first time when I checked out; was not fixed when I got the room again. Unattended children chasing each through the halls; I called the front desk to complain about that. My room was downstairs; the upstairs children seemed to be jumping off furniture. It's not soundproof and don't expect it to be. It's an old hotel. Security was non existent, except for the keycard to get into your room. No security at any of the exterior doors. Most hotels now require keycards to get in; this one has nothing.

Cons: Totally non smoking hotel would help those with allergies.
Room comfortable. TV worked but not remote, staff was asked to help but did not. Too much smoke odor in hall way.

Pros: Price is the only good thing if booked thru expedia
Cons: Everything
As soon as your nose adjust to the smell after you enter the room. Room was not badly set up. Just needed newer Items. Continental Breakfast was not worth these words I say now.

It was really nice and clean. Remodeled nicely. Pillows would be the only downside.
