We stayed at this motel one night. It is an older motel but not in bad condition. The staff was very helpful. The motel is near the harbour so it is a nice walk to the harbour. There was a microwave and fridge in the room. The room was clean and quiet.The internet was good. We would stay here again.

We found the staff friendly and helpful both over the phone making reservations and upon arrival and leaving. The room was clean and comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. We would definitely stay there again.
