Perfect accomodation close to the airport, staff warm and friendly (and that is an understatement- they were so kind and helpful). Loved the quirky retro feel. Rooms well maintained and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

The accommodations are better than expected! Large, clean and with nice decor. The LaCosta Motel was perfect for our girls trip. Great hidden gem with quality pricing. The complimentary breakfast basket was an extra special touch!
