We stayed for one night at this motel because we couldn't find anything else for my husband and three daughters at such short notice. For $168 we had a room with broken tiles all through the bathroom, taps that moved as you turned them on, a shower that didn't work properly and beds that were hard. The girls hardly slept... More

Comfortable enough, but nothing flash. A very high step into the room, and no rail to assist. Has a pool which looked clean, but there were weeds growing through the concrete and around the driveway. You get what you pay for.

This motel is old and tired looking but it was clean and comfortable. My daughter and I were booked in for 2 nights. We were in town to attend a concert and also do some sightseeing. The bedspread and blanket were from the 70s but were clean and the bed was warm and comfortable. It was obvious that updating is... More

This was excellent value for money for a well equipped room. Parking very good. room very clean. An older place but pretty well maintained. Could be friendlier and is miles away from everything but the price compensates.

If you want a place to sleep for the night at a budget price then this place is fine. The bed covers smelt a bit and the mattress and pillows were hard, but the air conditioning soon heated up a cold room and the staff had turned on the electric blankets. Nice touch. Breakfast was standard motel fare. The proprietor... More

We stayed 2 nights as we were attending an event over the weekend. I was happy with the room photos on the website, but upon arrival they are tiny, barely enough room for any luggage and maybe a foot either side of the bed. The bathroom is similar to laminate sheeting on the walls with no gaps on the joins... More

We stayed here overnight, we just wanted a cheap motel for an overnight stay where all we were doing was sleeping and leaving early the next morning - so we didn't need anything fancy or pricey. The motel looks a little average from the outside and being an older motel I wasn't sure what to expect. The decor was a... More

We booked three nights here as it was just across the road from our old house and gave us some 'breathing space' whilst we made final arrangements to move back to the UK. It was a terrible mistake. The room was very small - so small that our suitcases had to remain in the car. There were holes in the... More

Nice place from the outside, very good wifi signal (4 SSID). However, in the inside, most sockets in the room are spoilt, minimum sockets to actually charge devices. Also bathing area is very cramped, water is actually very little, seems like they cut down on water. Lastly the most important, the bed is "sinking" which is very uncomfortable to sleep!
