Personally I dont think the motel was outdated at all, it was very clean and very accomodating.
The only problem we had was the fact that a group of us had come over for the wine festival and were treated what i thought was to be a bit harsh on our second night. Of course it was expected that we would all be a bit on the "out of orderly" side by the time we got back to the motel after our fantastic day at the festival, only to be told at 8.30 pm that if we didnt quieten down we would have the police called on us.......... (i had been a bit rowdy for about 10 minutes.....) The amusing part was that we had made much more noise the night before and the motel managers said they hadnt heard a thing. At the end of the day we all still had a great time and the motel managers were really quite accomodating, patient and helpful apart from that one comment. If it wasnt for that we would all have been more than happy to have stayed there again next year. (But then they probably wouldnt have us!) It was the Wine Festival weekend afterall and some noise should have been expected. Maybe in future, motels should keep this in mind.
