Reviewed May 9, 2012

We were in the area for business and booked rooms 3 and 5. I have only one complaint and that is the hard bed, I just don't get it, motels everywhere are getting firmer and firmer beds, someone should make the bloody owners sleep in the damn things. Other then this, the motel room was great, pleanty of room, great shower, quiet A/C, bid TV. The hotel area was also great, good food and cold beer.

We had stayed here many times and found it suitable for visiting our family. However in December we stayed there and were completely disgusted. The music stopped at 2.30 a. m we accepted that because it was near christmas so parties were expected. Our problem was at 3 a m the patrons from the hotels started their own party outside our room. I asked nicely would they be quiet but was ignored. I called reception and nothing was done. At 4.30 they decided to go to bed finally. When I complained next morning I was ignored. I sent an email to the manager and was practically called a liar so I will never stay there again. Be aware if you stay there the staff are no help at all and they not do offer a refund if your stay is horrible.

Room Tip: Don't go.

So stuck in the 70's everything about this room is old and foul. Too close to the road and loud patrons. Nowhere to park vans/trailers. When I booked it online the photo was of the new modern rooms. The rooms we got were run down cold and drafty. The sophisticated loot lock baffled me .... Why? Spend the cash on paint or something useful

My husband and I and another couple stayed here over Easter weekend on a last minute booking.
The location was okay, out in the suburbs but a car definitely needed to get to city / wine country.
Room was modern & accommodated 4 adults in one room, although rather small. There was not enough hot water to fill spa bath so we boiledsomee water to make it warmer.
The walls were paper thin and we were woken each morning hearing clear conversations coming from the
next room. The worst part were the locking system! It was electronic and if you forgot which button to press a loud alarm would sound to awaken the neighbors ( or the other way around).
The breakfast at adjoining hotel was included, we choose the hot breakfast both mornings for $10.
The hotel had live music, but it not in the same building so we could only hear the sound of distant bass from our room.
We feel we were very lucky to have quite neighbors!

Really didnt enjoy my time at this hotel. I was ignored by the staff at the counter for 15 minutes before the person behind told me someone would be with me in a minute. Everythiing seemed to much trouble. The noise in the room was incredible, from the constant fan generated noise (some kind of cooler I expect) behind the room wall, to planes that regularly flew over head, and to finally the full on brawl outside my door at God only knows what time of the morning that continued for sometime. I would never go there again to sleep - you wont get any. I know it was a bad idea from the beginning, the only people who sleep at this motel are its drinking patrons.
