After reading some of the reviews, I wasn't too sure what to think. However, after staying 3 nights there, I was happy I booked a room after all. The room we had appeared to have been recently renovated, with new floors, beds, and paint (I think whomever painted though should have done a better job in some spots, like where the wall meets the tile and removing door knobs, outlet covers, etc.) Bottom line... I booked a room in an area that had limited hotel options from where I needed to be, and also because, like many others probably did/do, the price was good. Yes, there are some things they could improve upon, but the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location was only 15 minutes or so from the airport. I'd go back.
As for the negative reviews and comments I read online before booking, here are my thoughts:
"small pool" (it's an outdoor hotel pool for splashing around and cooling off, not the US Olympic Trials pool. I was even able to do a few modified "laps" of actual swimming)
"it's near a highway" (as was obvious from the map, so shouldn't have been a surprise. Ask for a room away from the highway. Note: I was on the highway side, heard some cars, but slept well)
"they didn't make my bed" (The front desk staff let me know upon check in that, for environmental and cost savings measures, they offer housekeeping upon request. Make your own bed! The room was is great condition when I arrived)
"the breakfast was limited" (People! We're coming out of a worldwide pandemic. Get real! I ate breakfast 3 days in a row there. They had scrambled eggs, sausage, yogurt, HUGE oranges, apples, bananas, bagels, cereal, etc.)
