We chose this hotel based on the proximity to things around town, but not necessarily on airport. It turned out to be about 15-20 mins away from everything which wasn't so bad only because we had a car and a GPS. Even without it, it's easy to navigate to from the downtown core because you're driving through two major streets. There's an outdoor strip mall called 'Cascade Station' and an IKEA that's a 4 minute drive away if you want to do some shopping; however if shopping downtown is your main attraction, then you might want to consider staying at a closer hotel.
The pictures on the website definitely makes the hotel seem much newer that it really is. The hotel is quite rundown and needs to be saved from its late 80s vibe. Having mentioned that, everything was quite clean considering I'm usually one to wipe everything down before I put my clothes on hangers and hang my bath towels on the back of the door. We stayed in a section of the hotel that's a little further from the lobby area where you have to walk down the hall from the pool to get to the room. The room we stayed in was surprisingly spacious which included:a king sized bed with a flat screen tv, a square table for eating and or writing, a couple of chairs and a counter top with a little bar sink, fridge and microwave. Overall I was quite happy with the size and cleanliness.
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Their internet wasn't working when I was trying to look up a good restaurant to eat at so I decided to ask the hotel staff behind the counter. He ended up giving me a list of places that locals go to and really spent the time to help me out.
I was able to hear the tv of the hotel guest that stayed next door to us, but like any other hotel, I'm sure it would be the same unless you it was sound proofed. The loudest part most disrupting part of my sleep was when the person next to our room was running the tap in the bathtub/shower.
I would only recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be close to the airport, but otherwise, I'm very happy with my stay.
