"Great value for what it is"
I'm not sure this hotel is truly a 3 star, but I still have no complaints.
This is my second experience with Thon Budget hotels, (the other was in Bergen) and they've both been good. The exterior of this property may be a bit off-putting, I suppose, but if you're just looking for a comfortable bed, a good shower, and a hearty breakfast, who cares? My room was modern, quiet, well thought out, and clean. The bed was comfortable, the water pressure in the shower was good,and full breakfast was included. If pressed to come up with suggestions for improvement, I'd say that the bathroom was dark, and they appear to only have the most basic TV channels, which is pretty slim pickings in Norway. The shuttle does seem high at 70NOK, but it's not operated by the hotel. I have no reservations about Thon Budget,and should the occasion arise, I would welcome the opportunity to stay at one of their higher end properties.
If you're looking for a decent place to sleep near the airport at a reasonable price, I'm not sure you could do better than this.
