          Great location, clean room, good waffles for breakfast. Only complaint for those of us not accustom to 4 hours of night would be lack of light blocking drapes. Would wake up at 4am to a brightly lit room.

          We have reservations for June 6 and 7. We arrive at 0600 on the 6th after flying through the night. Can we bring our luggage there prior to check in so we can do some local stuff and not have to leave luggage in the car. It would be a great help. Thanks and looking forward to our time there.
