We waited almost 2 hours for the shuttle. The shuttle does not come around on a routine basis, like all the other hotel shuttles. When we called, we ended up waiting another hour for a shuttle. When we departed, the night clerk did not book the am shuttle for us. It was just due to the manager, that we were able to get a shuttle to take us to the airport. There is no restaurant close by, so you are dependent on the hotel shop for food. In all honesty, I would probably avoid this hotel. They just made a stressful day, more stressful.

This facility was well worth the price. They had a shuttle available for MCRD graduation to and from the airport and many local attentions. The staff was kind knowledgeable and accommodating!
