I found a very good rate online, and booked without knowing for sure what would greet me upon my arrival (because of the low rate). Turns out I have stayed in much more expensive places with accommodations not nearly as nice! I was very pleased - the room was very clean, modern, and, wonder of wonders, the lamp bases had USB ports! I don't find them everywhere, so it was a nice perk. The desk clerk was helpful and pleasant, and the next morning breakfast was pretty good. Not a full breakfast bar, but I wasn't disappointed, at least. Possibly the best part - other than the great rate - was that I found out that I could leave my car at the motel instead of having to park in long-term parking at the airport, and the motel provided shuttle service via a contract with a local cab company both to and from the airport. The cost for this was half of the airport fee, and I didn't have to deal with taking my car to the airport. So all in all, this was a gem of a discovery! (NOTE: In the extra review tabs, the question asked is "does the motel offer free transportation to the airport?" The service is free, as far as I know. The cost for me to leave my car at the motel while I was gone on my trip was $6 per day, while the airport long-term parking would have been $12 per day, plus the cab service that the motel has contracted with is free to guests - the motel pays their fee. I did tip the driver both going to the airport and coming back 4 days later.) less
