rude owners,no smile on their faces,we were not welcomed at all.we went to chat with the owner,he didnt even give eye contact.we were scared.we asked for the cabin if it was available,even though it was empty.we were very upset,so we decided somehow to spend these two days even though this accomodation didnt suite us.

I give it an excellent rating keeping in mind that it is a motel and not a hotel. Clean room with coffee maker, flat screen TV, clean bathroom, ample parking. Easy to found, right on the pacific highway. it was a nice stay.

Cannot emphasise just how rude the owner of this hotel was. We had a similar experience as many other travellers, swiping of our credit cards as soon as we arrived as their "policy" was to distrust all internet bookings. We had the very angry female owner almost knock down our door at 11pm, telling us our tv was too loud,... More

Me and my heavily pregnant wife were passing through and needed a place to rest. Every motel in town was booked out except this one so we had to resort to it. I phoned ahead and made a reservation. Upon arrival the old man at the front desk (who happened to be the owner) said to and my wife "go... More

The reason we picked this place was because nothing else was available, the reviews on TripAdvisor were terrible. Arrived today to learn that they processed the credit card in advance for both myself and my friend without our permission. I asked to pay in the morning on separate cards on check out, but the rude female owner told me that... More

I stayed here for one night with my Husband on business. The woman at reception was really lovely and helpful. The room is old but comfortable, it is quite large but the bathroom is very small. The TV was big and there was also a DVD player. The light fittings were all covered in dust, which didn't bother me but... More
