Hotel near Glasgow Prestwick airport

Could anyone recommend a relatively inexpensive hotel near Glasgow Prestwick airport? I will be arriving late at night so I want to be close to the airport. Next morning I will need to get into the centre of Glasgow so I don't want to be too far out.

Thanks

There is a Travel Inn right at the airport - and very inexpensive. They have a free shuttle bus - but with light luggage you could even walk to the terminal.

OOPS - I am so sorry - the Travel Inn is at Glasgow - not Prestwick. I saw the "Glasgow" in your post but completely skipped over the "Prestwick" bit.

A couple of years ago we stayed at a travel lodge on the outskirts of Kilmarnock - probably about 10 miles north of Prestwick, and within easy reach of Glasgow. Will you be driving? If so, that would work - it was quite inexpensive too.

First I have no first hand experience, however, a quick search indicates that most hotels are in the town of Ayr, about 4 miles from the airport. Two miles to Troon. From Ayr or Troon fast train service to downtown Glasgow.

These hotels are listed on the airport web site:
Parkstone Hotel, Prestwick +44 (0)1292 477 286
The Thistle Hotel, Irvine +44 (0)870 222 9156
Monkton Travel Inn, Monkton +44 (0)1292 678 262

I've stayed in the Travel Inn and it was fine for one night - it's only a short taxi ride from the terminal

Thank you all for your replies. I have in the end gon for the Parkstone Hotel in Prestwick because it is
a) very close to the airport and I will be arriving late
b) it is very close to the train station for me to be able to get into central Glasgow easily
c) very reasonable at £42.50 and
d) very pleasant and helpful people when you phone them.

I will let you know how I get on in about 2 weeks time.
