We were here for 1 night and the motel was nice comfy and in good area. The rooms are tidy and warm, it has all that is needed for the comfort stay and the owners are very warm people. Onsite parking and good neighbourhood is a big plus, we were happy with our stay.

Family run motel that was very maintained offering clean and tidy rooms. The location was quiet and only a short walk to a variety of eateries. The room also offered a kitchenette with microwave. Good free internet service.

While on a training seminar recently we stayed at this motel - reasonable prices, very clean and tidy, $5 continental breakfast available if ordered the day before and a reasonable distance to the city centre and other suburbs - recommended
