DONT BE FOOLED BY THE GORGEOUS PHOTOS
Two couples and another of our friends booked in here and got separate motel rooms- not backpackers- they look gorgeous but the beds were rock solid- which might do it for some people but none of us had comfortable sleeps.
Not that we got much sleep due to the lack of sound proofing -
the bar right out front had music blaring until 3am!
We had asked about the bar when we booked in - if it would be noisy- The reply was "its only a restaurant so no. an obvious lie
then at 7am a service man came around banging on our door- he wanted us out so he could clean the room- and no, they don't give you a do not disturb to put on the door.
We would've had a better night sleeping in a car!
Would NEVER go back
