Our check in was super efficient and friendly. Our party of 5 (4 adults and 1 child) stayed in a three bedroom apartment at the front of the complex (that's it upstairs in the photo above) and what a comfortable place it was to stay. The rooms were a good size, the lounge/dining area was very spacious, the bathroom well... More

Great, comfy room with good beds and a jetted tub. There was plenty of room to spread out, and the location was very convenient for our rental car dropoff (just down the road from Abell). We had a good laugh at the shiny satin pink curtains. The window opens and the A/C works great. Recommended.

We stayed 1 night in a Studio Spa Unit at the back of the complex. The room was spotless and nothing left to chance. We found the staff friendly and helpful. It was quiet, restful and we had a great nights sleep. We required 2 car spaces and it worked very well. We enjoyed our stay very much and would... More

What lovely people that run this place. I stayed one at this motel last night. I arrived late and they were awaiting my arrival with a very welcoming disposition. The rooms were lovely and a really great rate. $125 for a spa studio. I overslept in the morning and the cleaning staff were wonderful giving me the extra time I... More

We stayed in 3 bedroom apartment. Very comfortable. Full sized fridge. Spacious. Quiet. One thing that would have made it more user friendly would have been a second bathroom. Lovely and clean, on main road but noise wasn't a problem.
