    Nice and easy airport. Free wifi. I also saw one computer that has free internet access. There's a Great Lakes Brewing Co. where you can never go wrong. Try the Christmas Ale. CAK needs more clocks.

    Easily my favorite airport: Easy parking, attentive shuttle drivers, short check-in lines, quick wait at security, great lakes on tap and I've never had a significant flight delay--what's not to love?

    What a great little airport! There is an office area open to everyone that is comfortable and quiet to get work done. Quick security lines. And, the Delta gate was giving away popcorn!

    If you're round-tripping be sure to look at in/out of CLE. Cheap rental cars can be had as they constantly shuttle cars back and forth between locations.

    No need to arrive too early if you travel in the early morning- I've been here a dozen times and it has never taken me more than 15 minutes to get from the car to my gate.

    Uber is an available alternative to taxis here. Almost half the price! By the time you get your luggage, the car will be available to pick you up! Note: Ubers ETA is off, never more then 15 min.

    Don't fly Allegiant, especially if you have kids. They only let one person to the gate even if you have an infant and a toddler to get through security.
