Nice reception staff, accommodating, putting the two rooms of our party in proximity to each other. Allowed early check-in. Rooms clean. Nothing fancy, but a solid motel. Tripadvisor won't publish this review unless it's 200 characters or longer, hmmmmm.

We enjoyed eleven nights at the Abelia Motor Lodge. The accessible facilities were perfect, right from getting out of the car to using the bathroom facilities. A lovely clean and spacious unit that can be rearranged to suit wheelchair and non wheelchair users. Our hosts were warm and friendly. While the accommodation is on a busy road, it is set... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Abelia Lodge, very friendly staff, comfortable bed, small kitchenette in the room, large bathroom, despite proximity to road it was not noisy, birds singing in the back was a plus, even had a view of the mountains. Free and fast Wifi, also parking... Overall very good stay for us with our 2 year old daughter.... More

My friend and I picked the Abelia as it was on the right side of the road to get all the afternoon sun. We asked to inspect a room and the lady was more than happy to split the king into 2 singles. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean, large bathroom, everything was in working order... More

I had three great nights here. Extremely tidy. Owner has a taste on all facilities, simple but with good quality. Comfortable bed for good sleeping. No worry of the traffic noise as long as you close the door. Big bath room. Full facilities kitchen. And we really enjoyed our lunch or dinner under the shade tree. Close to the beach... More
