The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Gave ideas of things that were happening around. Room was great. Only thing that could be improved was the continental breakfast. Overall a great experience at a great price. Will stay there again when going up north.

We had got a good deal online .Also the location suited us well since we wanted to visit the wineries.
The rooms were spacious and relatively clean .They have a decent breakfast spread. The only thing i remember is the huge ceiling and spacious lobby and dining area.One could sit down relax and read a book in the lobby area.

Stayed in a hot tub room, and the hot tub was great. Room was clean, Television had awful reception. We did not tell front desk because it was more than likely an issue that cable company would have to fix. Besides how could they not be aware that half their channels in that room don't work. The noise level outside our room with people going up and down stairs was insane. They stomped up and down the stairs and then in front of our room. At times our room shook. That really should be addressed either to make it more sturdy or to monitor people. They went up and down at least 20 times in 30 minutes. Just awful. The price of the room you can't beat. The tv can be easily taken care of and the noise level ended by 10:30-11:00 so it didn't affect sleep. This is the second time we stayed here and probably will again. Such a great deal and clean room.

After reading good reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to give this motel a try. We are glad that we did. Staff was friendly, room was clean and looked to be recently remodeled.
