Stumbled our way to this motel. This is what motels used to be like. There is nothing remarkable here but nice clean and comfortable rooms. The checkin staff was polite and fast. If you are a weary traveller and have a chance to stay here, you will not be disappointed.

We had a reunion at Best Western and having everyone booked in there it was an excellent choice. Had so many great comments from them all. The conference room was another excellent choice and the food that was served was amazing.

Sorry, just picked up your query which isn't very helpful to you, is it. Also, apologies, as I can't answer the question! We did find the management at the motel very helpful. We did find our unit comfortable but we were just a couple. Have a good trip.

Thank you for your query. If you are looking for a two bedroom the rate is for 4 people, then $15.00 for an extra person. If you are looking for a one bedroom the rate is for 2 people and then $15.00 for an extra person. I hope this is of some help. Kind regards Karen.
