Stayed here last night. The room we had was one of the retro rooms described by other contributors, and was clean, but on the main road and very noisy in the afternoon, but fine at night. Apart from that, it was as you would expect, so no complaints there. The Limo picked us up from the Airport with another couple. It's a stretch, with room for 4 people in the back, and towing a trailer so they can fit luggage in it. I don't get it really, it has no sign writing on it, so maybe they use it for weddings or such, but a mini bus would be better. Check in and out were quick and friendly. We dined at the Flight Lounge restaurant and bar. It looks like this is one of the areas of the Motels that has been done up, and looks nice, a bit cold on the night with a breeze wafting in from the main door. On the night we were there, they were busy, and mucked up a few orders around us (not ours), and the service was slow. On to the food, I had the strip steak with a red Wine sauce, the steak was cooked as requested, the sauce was a little weak, but OK, the carrots were not really cooked at all, but not a big deal, I like raw carrots. The hand cut Chips were excellent. In closing, a motel that offers free pickup and delivery to the airport, has a bar/restaurant, is clean, and has friendly staff is all anyone can ask for. No doubt there is room for improvement, but I'd stay there again.
