Very clean, very friendly staff and the family room was perfect! Little touches like a proper kettle for us non-coffee drinkers, lollipops on the beds and the two reclining armchairs made this an excellent stop on or mini road trip. There is a heated pool, although the wet weather stopped us from using it... It isn't in the most picturesque... More

This is a very good place to stay if you're looking for a bargain. VERY CLEAN -- even the parking lot was swept and hosed! -- and excellent service from the owner and family who live onsite. The room we had was a little cramped. (They could have taken out a table or two and freed up some space.) The... More

It was clean and the staff were friendly. It felt safe. The price was good compared to other places in the area. My one complaint was that it was way too hot! When we went in the air conditioner was turned off and even after turning it on it wasn’t much better than a fan. If you don’t like the... More

Had to stay somewhere for two days while there was some work being done to my home. After doing some internet searching for a clean affordable motel we decided on this motel because of its reviews. We asked and were shown the two available rooms and decided on the smaller one of the two. Its an older style motel but... More

While the Sunshine Motel is the older style, single story motel wrapped around a nice pool, it was extremely clean and nice. The rooms were a little on the small size, but being able to back the car up to unload it made up for that. The management was very friendly and helpful. Nice place to style and it was... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this well located small motel. Room was spotless and comfortable; air conditioning, coffee pot, microwave, and fridge all clean and worked.Grounds and pool were well maintained.

I was not sure what to expect from the modest motel. After getting an early check in and a very accomodating Host, I was very Pleased! the rooms are CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. Mine was a bit small, but still for the pricing. You can NOT go wrong with this place! Very happy about it.

I was grateful to have found a cheap motel that smelled good, had a cold and quiet AC unit, and a small fridge. The WiFi worked good and the pool area is very well maintained. It's old but in great shape. Would not hesitate a second to take advantage of this little gem again,again, and again. Probably the best value... More

Went to this cute little old fashioned motel for just a weekend get away. The price was great and it was one of the cleanest places we stayed. The owner was very friendly, always visible on the property making sure things were up to par. Every time we would see him, he would ask if we needed anything and if... More

This is the Oza Motel which has new ownership. It was very clean although the first morning I noticed a shampoo cap on the floor of the shower, it was gone when I returned that night. The outside light shines in through the window keeping the room lighter than I like. I did not use the pool, however, everyone I... More
