Great motel. Good service offered by the motel manager. Very flexible management who were very helpful. Great location next to Burger King restaurant. Easy walk to the stadium. Also easy walk to town. We didn't need a taxi after finishing up late in town and walked home easy.

I have been staying here for a number of years on a regular basis. Selby and Janelle always give me a warm reception and I feel spoilt to have my favourite room each time. The room is always to a high standard. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.
