Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location of city Inn was perfect for us to both explore and work! The staff were always so helpful with directions and help with the buses and the pass made it so easy to get back to the airport! We had an economy room so it was small but comfy bed and the WiFi was excellent for us as we were both on a work trip so needed good internet access.
