With a 3 star motor inn, you don't expect silver service, and the place was cheap, so we knew what to expect in terms of the room, etc. The room itself was nice enough, not huge, but it was big enough for the two of us. The room actually sleeps 3, but it would have been a bit cramped with more people. The owners were lovely people, very friendly and helpful. The downsides of the place was that it is right on the main road, so pretty noisy. We're both heavy sleepers, so it didn't really bother us, but lighter sleepers might have trouble getting a good rest. There were a few issues we had with our stay though. Firstly, we booked the stay through booking.com and booked to include breakfast for an extra $8 each, however, on our second day, was told that the owners would include '$8 WORTH' of breakfast. This is not what was advertised, but the owner said it was the websites fault, not theirs, so breakfast wasn't going to be included for $8 as was advertised. Second, on the breakfast menu, there is no price listed next to the newspapers, indicating for all intents & purposes that papers were complimentary, however, we still got charged. Also, on the first morning, we got the paper from the day before!! Breakfast was good size portions, although on the 2nd morning, the milk in the milo was off, which was pretty disgusting. We didn't bother with breakfast on day 3! The other negative was the water pressure in the shower, in that there was none!! It took 10 minutes to get a reasonable water temperature, it was either boiling hot, or freezing cold, but when we finally managed to get a warm water, the pressure out of the shower hardly makes it worthwhile.
Having said all that, however, the place was quite cheap, so if you're just passing through and need a place to lay your head, you could do worse. The rooms are clean and have what you need for a simple stay. Just remember that you get what you pay for, and you'll know what to expect!
