The motel room was very clean, however it was very cold. We were there in the winter, and they supply you with an oil heater that struggles to keep the room warm. An electric blanket is also provided which is great when you're in the bed...but when you're not, be prepared to hang around in a sweater/jumper.
We also had problems when checking in because we booked and payed for the room online and did not receive a voucher - which was essential to confirm payment. The lady at the motel told us that even though we had a receipt number, we needed a voucher otherwise we would have to pay her again.We managed to sort it out and didn't end up having to pay double...but be wary about this if you're booking via the web.
The location is good - close to many shops and restaurants and about a 10 min drive from the city centre. The road is also frequented by many buses.
A microwave and kettle are provided, as well as complimentary milk, tea and coffe - which was good.
