Receptionist, who was on the computer, just ignored us when we approached. When we asked about check-in, he just coldly told us that check-in isn't till 2PM (not looking up from his computer at all) No hi, hello or any eye contact. The shuttle driver kinda looked guilty at the side but didnt say anything either, but I asked him...

Worst best western anywhere - Unpleasant staff, crappy breakfast, poor security - side door open all night, parking full with their vans, noisy. I could go on but be assured I won't be back and I'd recommend no one else go there either. Lots of choices in the area.

This hotel is newly remolded, brand new furniture and equipment. We stayed in a suite and there were 3 of us. Plenty of room and absolutely beautiful! It was nice having the free shuttle to the airport. Could not want for anything!

Hotel and staff good breakfast was uninteresting! Remember commercial "where's the beef!" Here it's "where' the breakfast." As far as the hotel went staff very friendly, rooms nice! Plenty of nearby places to get food!

We enjoyed our stay here. The location was excellent and the hotel facility was really good. Generous parking, room was spacious. Friendly staff. The hotel was good value for money, very close to a lot of things including the airport. We spent 4 nights at another hotel downtown (more expensive)but in hindsight we should have stayed at this location longer....
