The room are nice with good shower and bathroom facility. Not much place for seating down in the room. We had the room on the end so it was very noisy from the road traffic. The manager was nice and gave us fresh milk for the coffee. Lots of parking in front and good WiFi. Location is a little far...

We had a very impromptu stay at the Cranford Oaks back in 2014 thanks to a cancelled Jetstar/jetfail flight. The staff at the airport’s iSite arranged this for us. The staff were immediately helpful, taking a tired and frazzled family of four, helping with our bags and putting us into a room to rest while our own room was being...

Wonderful friendly place to stay. Clean & quiet. Steve the manager was most helpful and I didn't want for anything! Short ride to city center and it's on a main bus route. Stayed for 16 days and it was very nice. There is a very nice tavern with great food just across from the motel.

Nice place to stay. Room was updated and clean. The small kitchenette allowed us to purchase food and eat in the room...a nice change from restaurants. Reception was helpful with directions to food stores. Bed was comfortable and room was fairly quiet. Motel was 5 minute drive from the Northland mall and Countdown food store. We would recommend this motel...

We spent 5 nights in this motel in November. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, warm and quiet. The managers are so helpful and friendly. Highly recommended. We enjoyed our stay here immensely. Thank you.
