We stopped here for one night. The price was very good and the staff friendly. The unit was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Nice being next to the river to go for a leisurely walk as well

Nice, simple motel set up. Lovely staff and welcome, free parking and good WiFi. The room is a little cold this time of year and no heaters on offer, but hot water always available. Would stay again if I were in town.
