We parked right outside our room and settled in. We had a lovely view of the mountains and had fun trying to photograph them in the evening light. We also felt that our outside space was quite private and enjoyed relaxing over dinner there, having cooked in the kitchenette in the room. We booked knowing that the motel was a bit further out and we'd probably therefore cook dinner for ourselves this night, but we could have walked to the main road in town to eat. Our bed was comfortable and the bathroom was smart. There was no noise from adjacent rooms and our stay was peaceful.
The folk who ran the motel were really friendly ... why stay at a chain motel when you can stay somewhere like this?
