The motel is fabulous! It appears to be new, beautifully decorated, with tasteful colors, fixtures, and plenty of marble and corian. The rooms are well designed with the curving shower rod, hairdryer, and coffeepot. We had the room with a king bed, then a curved archway that seperated part of the room that contained a TV and a couch that opens into a bed. There were 2 minor things that I would have designed better. First there is the curved archway dividing the room but it's only visual. There is no real privacy. It would be nice it there was a curtain or divider or some kind of pocket doors to seperate the room for privacy. But that would be very unusual because as nice as the place it, it is still a standard motel room. Second is that the AC is right under the window (again as in most hotel rooms). This causes the air to constantly blow the curtains. Still the room stayed mostly dark with the curtians drawn but it seemed like there should be a solution to that, like those plastic arms that hold the curtain in place.
Staff was pleasant. The second shift check in girl is the happy smiling face you want to talk to. The morning dark haired girl was the person you didn't want to talk to. She was not rude, just not as friendly. The maintance guy just happened to be there at check in was very friendly and gave great advice on restaurants. The pool opens at 10am to 10pm. Since it was not locked we went for a swim about 9:15 am before checkout and he seemed a little annoyed that we used the facility but said it was ok to stay.
The pool was very nice. Make sure you bring your own floatie/swimmine for your small child. We forgot and being off-season nobody even wal-china-mart had any type of swim floation for sale.
Last thing, make sure you ask for the river view. We were given a room facing the road. Unfortunately our kids were jumping on the bed before we noticed and didn't want to change rooms at that point. Still it was easy to enjoy the river view in our spare time or at the substantial breakfast. The hostess was very nice.
All in all a very very nice place for the money. Close to the attractions, shopping, and the train. We would love to come back.
