We were returning to the Costa Rica with a return customer deal. The motel is rather tired but the rooms are clean and tidy and the facilities all work. We had room 11 which had good parking, and was a very quiet room. The air conditioner and fan and fridge all worked well and the bed was comfy. The only... More

I'd stayed here before. But this visit in November 2014 was terrible! If I had only thought to look at the neon sign, or grounds and focused on the run down dis repair, I may have realised what I'd let myself in for! I was a single traveller, but on clearing at checking why my credit card has been billed... More

We recently stayed at the motel for 4 nights over last weekend & was very disappointed to say the least. Although the staff were friendly our room was very outdated & although clean it was riddled with thousands of ants which were in out beds after my husband complaining we were given a can of fly spray to deal with...

We arrived in xmas day. The WHOLE town was closed but the lady at reception organised us a xmas dinner of prawns, ham, turkey and salad as well as fruit and dessert at $30 p/hd. We certainly weren't complaining. We stayed in room 8 which included a long parking spot which was handy for the trailer and bike....the room was... More

we came home today after spending 4 nights and 5 days at this Motel, I had read bad reviews about it but found none of them true in our case, the only thing is you don't have any cooking facilities except for a microwave in the rooms, so basically have to eat out. The staff is very nice and help... More

This motel is quite large and covers a lot of area. It includes a tennis court and swimming pool. The owners are friendly and helpful and presented us with a complimentary bottle of wine on check-in (we were walk-ins, not sure if this is standard for all customers). The room was quite dated in terms of curtains, carpets and bathroom... More

It is so nice to have a pet friendly motel that was clean. Just had an overnight stay and although older style motel is well maintained. Only one suggestion it would be so much better not to have carpet in a pet friendly motel. Tiles right thru would be a much better idea. To give a more modern feel change... More

We headed up from Sydney and after a 5 1/2 hour drive we stopped at the first hotel into town exhausted. The lady at reception is really lovely and has great customer service skills, but at $135 it was overpriced for the time of year. As we arrived at 6.30pm I did ask (and was permitted) to stay until 12.15pm... More
