After reading many other reviews here of this motel, we were happy to book for an overnight. We had the same thoughts as others when we drove up to it - dodgy-looking area and iffy-looking motel. But don't let first impressions put you off. It's a little dated, has got a small 2-storey main building by the road, and a few other smaller units with rooms further back. Car parking is well off the road and fine. The room was clean, maybe smelt a little musty when entering, but it wasn't unpleasant at all. Air worked, shower was strong & hot, coffee percolator & coffee were excellent, and TV was fine. The bed was very comfy although the pillows were pretty huge; if you like thinner pillows, you may want to ask or bring your own, although we didn't as it was too late before we noticed.
Friendly and helpful manager, and the rate was the best we could find ($54). So it's like the title says!
