The location was very good. Plenty of places to eat. The room was large & comfortable. Evening personal very helpful. But the morning there was a language barrier.....

This motel is ok for a budget stay, but next some place better. The chairs are wore out and need to be replaced, had to put a pillow on seat to be comfortable.
