I spent there 4 nights. The room was nice and clean. The staff on front desk was very helpful and friendly: they gave me aspirin when I had a headache, every morning they ordered a taxi for me and called another company when I had unpleasant experience with Hays Cab. Overall, I would highly recommended this place for a short... More

This served the purpose for us. We were just staying overnight. It was clean and reasonably priced. The continental breakfast wasn't the best I've ever experienced but it was sufficient to keep us from having to pay for breakfast at another establishment Good hotel for the price. Pluckers right next door, gas and other eating places, location is super, Have... More

There were a couple of things I asked for and, and I got them very quickly. I even asked for a late checkout,... More

The location of the hotel was excellent and it had good wifi, but that's about all I can really say, hotel in need of a big cash injection to get up to an average standard. Don't bother with the so called breakfast, walk over to the Shel petrol station instead!

No frills but it was just what we needed. Very clean room real relaxing for a good price. Paid $47 if i remember correctly, with commercial... More
