Arrived late after a big drive and was welcomed by a pleasant check in . Ordered room service to save going out or eating at the on site restaurant. Meals was excellent and service was quick. Rooms were large and fitted out well.

We stayed in a corporate room for an extra $10 & found it to be all one could want in a motel. Room was clean, comfortable, quiet, modern, good pillows & bedding, movie channels. Overall we experienced pleasant staff & facilities with a good restaurant & nice pool with grassy area where we ate our breakfast.

Stayed for a night on our way northwards. This is a good, clean motel with friendly staff and a warm welcome. Rooms are quite large, well kept and contain all the requirements for an overnight stay.

We stopped here overnight for our family friends 1st birthday and we were thrilled with this place. It was very clean, very welcoming and perfect for our overnight visit. We loved the pool, it was the perfect way to end the day & the food was beautiful as well.
