Okay for a short overnight close to the airport. It served the purpose and was about what I expected. The staff are great and there was a nice breakfast.

2/10 Poor

Beyond disgusting
Disgusting… dried blood on the dirty sheets, pubic hair in the bathroom that hasn’t been cleaned in forever. I just wanted a clean place to sleep for the night, I escaped as soon as I could. The most disgusting place I have ever stayed. I would have been better sleeping in the airport.

Good hotel, nice people and good location
Hotel was good, i was picked up and drop off right on the 4 am time I requested. Usman was very helpful and checking in was pretty fast. The coffee I requested for 3.30 am was ready on time. Bed was super comfortable and shower was excellent. Anytime I have a flight that early it's the place to be.
