The Good
Overall, guests enjoyed this hotel and considered it decent option for an overnight stay close to the airport.

The rooms were comfortable and clean, spacious, and usually considered quiet. Guests liked having laminate floors, glass showers, mini-kitchens and families especially enjoyed having a separated bedroom with a second TV.

The location was appreciated for its proximity to the airport, although considered a little remote otherwise.

Many seemed to have had successful airport shuttle service, although this was not always the case.

Guests typically found the staff friendly and helpful.

Guests often enjoyed the free breakfast with some thinking it was better than most hotels.

Some appreciated having a small bar/restaurant on site. It had an adequate selection and the quality was good for the most part, although there were complaints about it as well (see below for more on this).

Guests who used this hotel to park and fly, seemed to find good value here and some were pleased that the hotel supplied Denver Boots to prevent theft.

The Bad
There were actually a fair amount of complaints in the reviews found online.

Guests often mentioned that the hotel was rather isolated and far from any good dining choices in walking distance.

Guests were sometimes made to wait for the shuttle service at the airport and occasionally a reviewer said it only ran once per hour (instead of every half hour).

Guests often found limited or poor service at the restaurant. Shortened hours, not being open at all, running out of food, a very limited menu, slow service and unpleasant servers were all mentioned.

Concerning the rooms, guests occasionally mentioned difficulties keeping the room warm. In the winter there was some mention of drafty windows or the heating system not working all that well. There was also the odd complaint about the renovations that were done, and once in a while a guest said the rooms needed a little better maintenance with particulars given such as mould in the tub surround, a slow shower drain and laminate flooring lifting. 

Occasionally there were noise complaints. Guests cited the highway, the airplanes, people in the hallways and doors closing.

A few reviewers said the hotel had a limited amount of parking.

Cable channels were mostly in French, according to some reviewers, and English-speakers sometimes found this difficult.
