Stay was excellent. We were there for a hockey tournament. My only complaint was there wasn't enough staff on when we all had to check out in the early morning.

A great experience. Clean, warm, comfortable rooms. Really nice friendly, helpfull staff. Great selection for the breakfast menu. Really nice being able to have breakfast right in the motel without have to travel out in the cold to eat. Enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again soon.
