The room was so clean and comfortable. The heaters kept the rooms warm and cozy. The owners were so friendly we just loved our stay. We found the location to be really handy for tourist attractions and found a delicious Thai place just around the corner.

Returned after staying last year - this year we stayed with friends and shared accommodation. Rooms were extremely comfortable. Rick and Ricki go out of their way to look after all our needs including pick up and transfers to transport or entertainment. Motel within walking distance of centre of town, casino and good eating places

Nice clean place. Very friendly and helpful owners. Would recommend. Lots of cafes close by. A little hard to find. But ok. Our unit had a large kitchen and living room which was great as there are 8 of us and we are all adults.

Location is close to city center and I can just walked there. Room is clean and have everything we need. Hosts were very helpful and provide good advise as to where to eat, go. The place is on a main street so it is easy to find, but it also means that there will be traffic noises.

Rick and Riki are just the best hosts. They accommodated our requests and did more than your normal average hosts will do. Rick picked us from the train station, took us to the airport, folded our washing and took us to the supermarket. What an awesome service! The rooms are clean, wifi is unlimited and free.

Rick the manager is awesome, friendly and helpful. A well laid out and warm unit which had all the amenities to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. It was totally spotless with comfy bed and lovely fluffy towels. Would definitely stay again.

He even got up at ridiculous o'clock to take us to train... An absolute gentleman.... Accomodation was exactly what it said... Clean and... More

This rated above average at 3.5 stars. Based on all the glowing reviews though, we had higher expectations for this place. Arriving when it was dark, first impressions from the outside didn't match up - neon signs, rooms set next to the main road. We had booked a studio, and was told that all studios faced the main road.
