I give it an excellent rating keeping in mind that it is a motel and not a hotel. Clean room with coffee maker, flat screen TV, clean bathroom, ample parking. Easy to found, right on the pacific highway. it was a nice stay.

Cannot emphasise just how rude the owner of this hotel was. We had a similar experience as many other travellers, swiping of our credit cards as soon as we arrived as their "policy" was to distrust all internet bookings. We had the very angry female owner almost knock down our door at 11pm, telling us our tv was too loud,... More

Thought we would write this review as i have read the Motel has been given a bad wrap by a bunch of arrogant snobs. We stayed in this hotel for 6 weeks for as we were working in the area. The two owners (married couple i think) we more than helpful going out of their way to help us out.... More

Me and my heavily pregnant wife were passing through and needed a place to rest. Every motel in town was booked out except this one so we had to resort to it. I phoned ahead and made a reservation. Upon arrival the old man at the front desk (who happened to be the owner) said to and my wife "go... More

I stayed for two nights between Xmas & New Year and had two rooms, one for my Dad and one for my partner & I and to be quite honest I only stayed there because everything else was full and without want to sound like a snob it's been many many years since I stayed at an establishment like this...

Arrived today to learn that they processed the credit card in advance for both myself and my friend without our permission. I asked to pay in the morning on separate cards on check out, but the rude female owner told me that... More
