Basic accommodation. Single beds, TV. Share bathrooms - used by truckers and next to a truck depot - wasnt noisy on my stay. Rooms at back of bar.....food and drink on offer but nothing else nearby. Late check in available. Easy drive ( I actually walked 40 minutes) to airport. 15 minute walk to public transport.
