The price caught my eye -- well below average for the area -- and I carefully read reviews before booking. Seemed promising so I made my reservation. I arrived on an earlier flight than anticipated and the staff was most accommodating in allowing for an early check-in. The shuttle was easily found and the trip to the hotel was quick. Friendly and efficient service at the front desk. My room was in the main building (there is, apparently another unit, "the Compton House"), and on the snowy December afternoon/evening, the fireplace in the main lobby was very welcoming. (A great place, it turned out, for reading and knitting -- and, OK, a bit of people-watching -- while passing time.) The room was nothing fancy, but better than I had expected at the price I paid. The bed was very comfortable; bathroom clean and supplied with basic toiletries and hairdryer. Yes, I could hear voices in the hallway as people walked by, but, at least during my stay, I was not disturbed by ambient noise. Aircraft sounds are VERY muted; I can't say I heard any planes at all from my room. I highly recommend the Highlander; I do hope, however, that it doesn't become too popular and the prices rise disproportionately!
